Controversial TV host Willie Revillame has reclaimed his title as leader of weekend primetime game show when his revamped TV5 early evening show "Wil Time Bigtime" posted a 37.5% audience share according to the data provided by Nielsen Media Research toppling competition within the same timeslot.

The 3-hour pilot episode of Wil Time Bigtime has posted an overwhelming audience share of 37.5% in MegaTAM; overtaking GMA-7's 26.0% and ABS-CBN's 19.5% audience shares, respectively.

Wil Time Bigtime's premiered last Saturday, May 14, with a very subdued Willie Revillame who expressed no disgust but only gratitude to his supporters and critics.

The host thanked his long time partners and supporters such as Sen. Manny Villar, Sen. Ernesto Maceda, Sen. Juan Ponce Enrile and family. He also thank celebrities like Garvy Valenciano and his wife Angeli, Jose Mari Chan, among others.

He also thanked TV5 President Atty. Ray Espinosa and Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) Chairperson Grace Poe-Llamanzares.

But Willie said it was the words and encouragement of TV5 chairman Manny V. Pangilinan that encouraged him. "Your pain is our pain, your success is our success. Mr. MVP ngayon ko lang po narinig sa isang boss yan. Sobrang nabuhayan ako," Willie said.

Wil Time Bigtime's Saturday pilot has earned raves after it finally unveiled its state-of-the-art full high-definition LED floor which according to Jay Montelibano, the program's Business Unit Head costs 34 million pesos - the first of its kind in the country.

Its modern set fully enhances the excitement in most of its game segments including "Red, White, Blue" where studio contestants can get the chance to play for the Jackpot round of "Baligtaran." "Family Apir" was retained with another new jackpot round called "Will I Stick." "Roll It", "Wil Time Bigtime" plus the Mega Jackpot round of "Step Yes, Step No". Cash prizes have also been increased compared to its previous format.

The public's resounding welcome for the return of Willie Revillame on primetime TV proves his unwavering popularity among the Filipino masses. As a matter of fact, the show already gained support from some advertisers like Cherry mobile, Ysa, Bench daily scents, Pau liniment, Technomarine, Foton, Camella, Datu Puti, Skelan, Strepsils and many more. Jay Montelibano remains confident that other advertisers will reinstate their confidence for the show.

Willie and his co-host, Valenzuela councilor Shalani Soledad, are very thankful to all those who stood by the show and promise to give their 101% percent for the constant improvement of the people's program.

Wil Time Bigtime airs weeknights at 6:30 p.m. and on Saturdays at 5:00 p.m.

    sa 1st day lang po yang ratings na yan. curious lang ang mga tao. sa susunod na araw ay balik na sa dati yan.ang taong katulad ni revillame ay di dapat tangkilin ng madlang pipol dahil lalabas pa rin ang tunay niyang ugali. ginagamit lang ang mahihirap para sa kanyang kapakanan. bastos, arrogante walang utang na loob at mapanghiya na kapwa. bagay na bagay silang magsama ni fermin na trouble maker!!!
