'Willing Willie' to be replaced by 'Wiltime Bigtime'

"Willing Willie", the controversial show of Willie Revillame on TV5, will not be coming back anymore. However, a new show will be airing this May 14 in replacement of "Willing Willie". The upcoming primetime gameshow will be called 'Wiltime Bigtime' which will still be hosted by Revillame.

Entertainment show host Cristy Fermin announced the changes on Juicy Express' May 9 episode declaring the following:

“Binigyan tayo ng pagkakataon at oportunidad ni Willie Revillame na unang i-announce dito sa ‘Juicy Express’ na magbabalik na po siya sa [Mayo] katorse… Sabado ‘yan,”

“Ganun pa rin po, alas-singko [ng hapon] pag Sabado, 6:30 [ng gabi] araw-araw."

Since April 11, "Willing Willie" has been off the air after its sponsors removed their ads on the show due to the alleged "child abuse" on the show's March 12 episode. The Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) also had suspended the show for 1-month which ended on May 8. The Board already allowed the show to comeback on May 9.

Again, the show will not be coming back anymore and a new show titled "Wiltime Bigtime" will premier this May 14th.

Meanwhile, our poll's current results seem to favor the news above. So far, 4,989 respondents voted "No" to Willing Willie's comeback . They compose the sixty (60) percent of the total number of voters. As of May 10, 3,190 netizens (40%) also said that we should give the show a chance and should resume airing.
