October 11, 2013. (October 12, Philippine Time) I posted the appreciation article entitled “From Wowowee to Wowowillie – The End of an Era on Philippine Television… Again”. It was the day of the last airing of Wowowillie on TV5. And it appears today could be the end of another era. And potentially the beginning of a new one?
It has been absolutely fascinating to watch Willie Revillame’s modified Tutok to Win fill-in for the regular Wowowin show. What started out as a simple online livestream has become what could be a template for what live television entertainment could look like for the foreseeable future.
