TV5′s executives confirmed that the noontime show of host Willie Revillame‘s “Wowowillie” will go off-air in October. During the press conference announcing the network’s line-up of new programs, TV5 President Noel Lorenzana and Chief Entertainment Content Officer Wilma Galvante were asked as to what’s ahead for Revillame’s “Wowowillie.”

TV5 President confirmed that the show is indeed ending next month, the TV host’s contract will no longer be renewed.

“If Willie comes back, it will be under new circumstances, a new format, and that’s a big if.”

The 2010 primetime program “Willing Willie” his first show on TV5, was accused of child abuse when a 6-year-old contestant was supposedly made to perform as a “macho dancer.”





The controversy, which involved advertisers pulling out from the show, prompted Willie to announce it would go on hiatus. A month later, it resumed as the reformatted “Wiltime Bigtime.”

On the same program in May, Revillame announced his plans to retire, saying “Wowowillie” will air its last episode on October 12.

“Alam ninyo, may mga personal na rason na hindi ko na sasabihin sa inyo. Ako muna’y magpapahinga ng ilang buwan, ng isang taon o anuman…Tatapusin ko na lang po ang kontrata ko sa TV5.”
