    The show goes on for Willie Revillame

    After persistent rumors that his block-timer on GMA Network Wowowin is in its final stretch, controversial game show host Willie Revillame triumphantly announced this week that the show will go on.

    “Binigyan pa nga kami ng 15 minutes extension ng GMA sa bago naming timeslot na 2 p.m. Mas maaga na at prime time pag tanghali, back-to-back pa sa Sunday Pinasaya nina AiAi (delas Alas), Marian (Rivera), at Jose and Wally ng Eat Bulaga.” he announced to the press at the network’s headquarters in Quezon City.

    Solely producing his own game show after the defunct Wowowee in ABS-CBN and Wowowillie on TV5 in the last several years, the 54-year-old host admitted that he almost gave up the block timer because he has already invested P50 million in the project.

    “Pera lang yon, kikitain natin ulit,” he shrugged his shoulders. “Maka-break even lang naman ako OK na para lang tuloy tuloy ang suwelo ng mga kasama ko sa show. Ang layunin ko lang talaga makatulong sa tao so handa akong gastusan ang Wowowin para lang gawin yon,” added Willie, who is known to give huge cash prizes to contestants on the spot in the past outings of his game show.

    Willie revealed the details to his meeting with GMA First Vice President for Program Management Joey Abacan who told him, “Walang iwanan.”

    Besides giving Wowowin an extended 15 minutes, the network also granted Willie a discounted rate on his block-timer.

    “I’m very glad and I’m so happy na pinapakinggan nila ako. Yung hiningi kong konti, malaki ang ibinigay. Hindi ko ini-expect na ganun kaya sobrang thankful ako kay Mr. [Felipe] Gozon, Mr. [Philip] Yalung, Mr. [Gilberto] Duavit at sa lahat ng tao sa GMA. Ang sarap ng feeling na lahat tanggap ka.

    “Noon pa man ay handog ko na ang Wowowin sa mga taong walang tigil na sumusuporta sa atin, kaya para sa kanila ay wala rin tayong tigil sa pagtulong at sa pagbibigay kasiyahan. Nakakatuwa na mapapanood na nila kami sa mas maaga at mas mahabang timeslot dahil paniguradong mas marami pang kasiyahan at papremyong ang hatid ang programa,” he ended.

    Wowowin airs right after Sunday Pinasaya beginning today.
