Beginning Monday, April 11, "Willing Willie" will be replaced by two programs “Primetime Super Sine” and “Magic? Gimik!”. After off-air for two weeks, "Willing Willie" will have two grand changes: improved show and improved studio.

In an official statement released by TV5, "the network will work with Mr. Willie Revillame and WilProductions, Inc. in order to improve the program and ensure that it will continue to bring fun and entertainment to its many loyal viewers."

Below is the TV5 official statement:

TV5, with the cooperation of Mr. Willie Revilame and WilProductions, Inc., has decided to stop the airing of the Willing Willie show for a period of 2 weeks starting April 11, 2011.

During this period, TV5 will dialogue and work with the MTRCB, KBP, PANA and other stakeholders to come up with appropriate guidelines that will apply to all networks and the entire industry with respect to the participation or use of children in talent, game and reality shows for television. TV5 will also complete the improvement of its internal guidelines and processes to achieve the same end.

Furthermore, the network will work with Mr. Willie Revillame and WilProductions, Inc. in order to improve the program and ensure that it will continue to bring fun and entertainment to its many loyal viewers.

TV5 reiterates its commitment to responsible broadcasting and vows to continuously enhance its programs as its way of serving the public and thanking its viewers for their unceasing support, trust and patronage.

Coolbuster further reiterated two major expectations to see after the comeback of Willing Willie: improved show and improved studio.

The same source said that "Willie, weeks and even months before he got into trouble with critics of the Jan-Jan incident, bragged about a post holy week high-tech studio for Willing Willie."

"He said TV5 owner Manny V. Pangilinan (MVP) would acquire giant LCD monitors, which cost millions, for the show. The host was very proud then when he said the whole studio will be almost all-LCD; the walls, backdrop and even the stage floor will be an LCD screen!"
