Willie Revillame was expected to make his return on October 2, 2023, as a game show host.
In a Facebook post shared by Wowowin, they showed Revillame having a meeting with IBC 13 President Jimmy Policarpio and PTV-4 General Manager Ana Puod, a sign that the popular show would be aired on the said channels.
However, according to Puod, Revillame was not planning to occupy the noontime slot to match E.A.T, It’s Showtime, and Eat Bulaga.
“Under nego, iyon po ang operative word. It’s a tripartite discussion po with IBC 13, PTV, at saka si Willie. So, matagal po yung proseso. Marami pang inaayos. But all of the parties are hoping for a very positive outcome of our negotiation,” Puod told Pep.ph.
“Yung aming pakikipag-usap po sa kanila ay guided naman po ng Presidential Commission’s office. Sila po ang nagma-manage sa mga agencies na yun.” she added.
She also shared that the negotiation between their channel and Willie was started several months ago.
However, several critics of Willie asked who would fund the production of the show, since PTV-4 was funded by the government.
It can be recalled that Willie became close with the former administration and even invited them on his now-defunct show on GMA Network.
