Willie Revillame returning to ABS-CBN: Network exec speaks on rumored comeback

Is Willie Revillame returning to ABS-CBN? A network executive has spoken about the controversial television host’s rumored comeback as a Kapamilya.

In an interview during Tuesday’s annual stockholders meeting, ABS-CBN president Charo Santos-Concio refuted speculations saying Revillame is not coming back to the company’s fold.

“We’re not in talks with Willie Revillame...the rumor of his return to ABS is not true,” she told reporters. “We’re very happy with Showtime.”

“It’s Showtime” is a noontime variety show on ABS-CBN which airs head-to-head with Revillame’s show “Wowowillie” on rival channel TV5. The latter lunchtime program has been put under a three-month probation by the MTRCB for showing “skimpy outfits” of dancers and “excessive flesh exposure” in one of its episodes.
