Wowowin January 11, 2017 Video is a Philippine afternoon game-variety show presented by Willie Revillame and broadcast by GMA Network. The program premiered on May 10, 2015 as a Sunday afternoon game-variety show as a blocktimer on the network’s Sunday Grande block. The program is also broadcast internationally via GMA Pinoy TV, GMA Network’s international channel. The program marks the return of Revillame to Philippine television and his return to his original network, GMA Network, where he hosted Lunch Date with his close friend Randy Santiago in the 1980s. Wowowin is produced by Revillame’s WBR Entertainment Productions, Inc. serving as a blocktimer on GMA Network, and friend Randy Santiago served as the program’s original director.
After proving to be a strong contender in its weekend timeslot, Wowowin was granted extended airtime and became a co-production in late 2015 between WBR Entertainment and GMA Network. Another milestone was reached in February 2016, with Wowowin being promoted to GMA Network’s Weeknights Primetime block with another airtime extension, serving as the lead-in to the network’s flagship national evening newscast, 24 Oras. Wowowin began broadcasting from its new home located at Studio 6 at the GMA Network Studios starting April 18, 2016.
