The noontime variety that has beat Eat Bulaga! in ratings was cancelled in 2010. Wowowee is only TV show that caused a stampede that killed 78 contestants and injured more than 300 people because of its popularity. It was a threat for Eat Bulaga! for almost 5 years, however, the string of controversies involving its host Willie Revillame became the spark of the show’s end. It was reported that Willie’s last straw was when he threatened to quit the program because ABS-CBN’s management refused to fire Jobert Sucaldito, the showbiz reporter who would always criticize Willie. He had more failed shows after Wowowee. We just hope that he can save GMA’s Sunday noon time slot ratings with his new show, Wowowin.
