Willie Revillame came from one of the most successful weekday variety shows in ABSCBN, Wowowee. After some conflict with the shows, Wowowee was cancelled and replaced by another variety show hosted by Kris Aquino and Robin Padilla. He transferred to TV5 and made a similar show entitled Wowowillie. After 8 months of airing, Wowowillie was cancelled due to poor ratings of the show and Willie’s alleged retirement.
