Wowowee back ‘by popular demand’

If you were able to tune in today to ABS-CBN, you’ve probably encountered the Wowowee advertisement. The variety show, recently hit by tragedy where 74 people were trampled to death, will once again roll on your TV screens starting tomorrow “due to public demand.”

According to Ricky Lo’s entertainment column, “before the usual format (games such as Bigat-10, Tigasin, Willie of Fortune and Pera O Bayong, etc.), the show will be ushered in by five special episodes which dramatize the stories of past Wowowee P1-million winners” a la “Maalaala Mo Kaya?”

I wonder if this time around the show will remain true to its fun, lively and high-spirited theme. *sigh*

    that’s sick. a 5-episode drama/docu special preceding the return of the regular format wowowee noontime show? sick. brainwashing program disguising as noontime primer. sick. sabagay… the show’s uneducated and educated/desparate target viewers (most of which are poor) won’t notice the brainwashing, not that i’m undermining the poor’s intelligence. it’s the reality, I am in constant communication with such people at work and I know it for real. c’mon, wowowee isn’t comparable to eat bulaga (not that I’m a fan of the latter) but eat bulaga commissions TV talents (its hosts) to entertain (magpatawa/dance/sing) its viewers six days a week while wowowee rely so much on its own studio audience to make its viewers entertained. abs-cbn can go on with the show without its host & co-hosts coz the program format doesn’t even allow them to entertain their viewers. i’ve watched the show many times just to compare the two shows. and, abroad, foreigners who get to watch wowowee by accident on TV, think that all Filipinos have no transpo and medicine money. i guess, that’s the reason why my niece likes to watch more the japanese tourism show on channel 13 coz she sees Japan as a beautiful country. wowowee should be retitled as “Peria TV”
