A Variety Show Against TV Series!

Last Saturday at 5:30 PM, the Kapatid network launched the much-awaited variety show of Willie Revillame which is the so-called "Wiling Willie"!

Besides many controversies against Willie Revillame specially the case filed against him by his former network ABS-CBN regarding his contract, nothing prevented his show from airing. ABS-CBN also failed to get a temporary restraining order regarding the airing of his show.

Watching this new show of Willie in TV5, we may mistakenly say that it is a "Wowowee"! Yeah, 'coz not even the format, the stage design itself is just like his former "Wowowee"! But one thing is different, its timeslot!

Yup for the first time, a variety show like this is usually placed on noontime that's why it is called as a noontime variety show. But for this one Willie made a difference, he put his variety show in Primetime block!

According to Willie, "tama na daw muna ang padrama-drama...puro na nga daw tayo problema tapos dadagdagan pa..." pertaining to the TV series lineups of the Kapuso and Kapamilya networks wherein his show is pitted! What do you?!

Did Willie really wants to change our Primetime TV habits which is usually full of TV series so he put a variety show amidst of it?! Or he just can't beat the regular noontime show we have like "Eat Bulaga" and "Pilipinas Win Na Win" so he moved his show to another block?! As they say, "matalo man sa ratings, ok lang kase hindi naman noontime variety show ang katapat kundi teleserye"! Agree?!

Prior to the launching of this new Willie's show, ABS-CBN also made a move! They placed "Kapamilya Blockbuster" to be pitted against "Wiling Wilie" dropping down their usual FPJ classic movies! And last Saturday, ABS-CBN got the first victory from Willie's show! The TV5’s widely-publicized launch of “Williing Willie” only delivered a 13.6% ratings, losing to ABS-CBN’s “Kapamilya Blockbusters” featuring "Ang Darling Kong Aswang" which rated 22.6%! GMA’s “Wish Ko Lang” on the other hand was a far third with 11.2%.

"Wiling Willie" is now a daily Primetime TV program which airs at 6:30pm on TV5. This is part of the Kapatid network's Primetime TV lineup. What do you think?! Will the new Willie Revillame's show able to survive the competition on Primetime?! Or they will move the show on the noontime block later on?! C",)
