In 100 Words: Post-Wowowillie TV5

The Delta Theater, where Wowowillie used to tape live episodes, lay quiet. Only the logos and images of Willie Revillame were still intact, a stark reminder of how Willie helmed the program through its most controversial and memorable moments. It’s been nearly a month since Wowowillie left the air, and TV5 has yet to fill in the void.

The timeslot vacated by Wowowillie is currently used to air Tagalized foreign films as part of the ‘Sine Ko Singko’ block. After the program’s departure, TV5 has shifted its attention to late afternoon and evening programming, which they think is more attractive to viewers. In addition, the upcoming PBA season now gives TV5 the opportunity to tinker with their programs to fit in with the league’s games.

    The NCAA is set to air the Final Four and Finals on the noontime slot of TV5 that was vacated by Willie’s show.

    And with TV5 set to air the new PBA season, expect a lot of changes in their primetime programming. Most likely, the Kapatid Network will air a lot of weekly drama shows.

    GMA is now a co-producer of Willie’s show. Let’s see how this relationship will work amidst this latest case of Willie.
