Programming Notes: Wowowillie Ends, Bitag Goes to America, Genesis Timeslot Moved

Noontime program ‘Wowowillie‘ aired for the last time Saturday afternoon, during which host Willie Revillame tearfully thanked the fans and the staff for their support and trust despite his history of controversy as the host of the program. Revillame previously announced that he will not renew his contract with TV5 after this month, and will take a break indefinitely, citing burnout. At the moment TV5 has yet to announce a replacement, though it will be presumed that ‘Sine Ko Singko’ will take ‘Wowowillie”s place for the time being.

Also ‘T3: Reload‘ and ‘Bitag sa Radyo’ host Ben Tulfo announced on his Radyo5 and AksyonTV program that he and his staff at BST Trimedia will depart for the U.S. to film the third season of ‘Pinoy U.S. Cops – Ride Along’. He added that ‘Bitag sa Radyo’ will take a brief hiatus and will resume airing on the first week of November. He will also not appear with his brothers Raffy and Erwin on T3: Reload during the hiatus. Alex Tinsay’s ‘Aksyon Solusyon’ will air for two hours during Ben’s absence, with AksyonTV airing only the first hour.

Over at GMA, ‘Genesis’, a teleserye revolving around the apocalypse, was originally slated to replace the hit ‘My Husband’s Lover’ starting tomorrow. Instead it will now be aired after the newscast ‘24 Oras‘. The teleserye will be the latest project of Dingdong Dantes and will also star Rhian Ramos and Lorna Tolentino. Meanwhile, ‘My Husband’s Lover’ is now slated to end October 18. Last night, the cast led by Carla Abellana, Tom Rodriguez and Dennis Trillo held a concert at the Smart Araneta Coliseum entitled ‘One More Try’ as a way to thank viewers of the popular and controversial teleserye. The airing of the concert is yet to be determined.
