Wowowillie was a Philippine noontime variety show aired by TV5, The show premiered on January 26, 2013, and was broadcast live from TV5's Delta Studio in Quezon City, with its main host and producer, Willie Revillame. The show earned the distinction of being the only noontime program to have a Strong Parental Guidance rating from the MTRCB, which was imposed due to the dancers' provocative outfits.
In September 2013, Revillame admitted in an interview that the show's ratings "fell below expectations", and contemplated on a possible cancellation. The show aired its final episode on October 12, 2013, six months after its debut. It was replaced by Sine Ko 5ingko Hapon on weekdays and Sabado Sinerama on Saturdays.
Revillame's previous show Wil Time Bigtime ended its run on January 5, 2013 as he announced in late 2012, and moved to the noontime slot under the title Wowowillie. It premiered on January 26, 2013 to coincide with the host's birthday the day after.
Citing competition from rival variety shows It's Showtime and Eat Bulaga!, TV5 confirmed Revillame's announcement expressing his intent on cancelling Wowowillie and focusing on other commitments, as the show struggled to gain a significant audience share.
On October 12, 2013, Wowowillie aired its final episode, with Revillame bidding farewell to his audience and crew in a speech. No further plans were announced regarding a possible replacement to the program.
