Wowowee... it's all about...

JarethJareth PEx Veteran ⭐⭐
Exploiting poor people and reducing them into a bunch of dancing monkeys who would eagerly do cart-wheels, sing stupid songs and sing "boom tarat tarat" for a dollar or two.

To do almost anything Pappy will ask them to, to have a shot at promised wealth and riches... that may be empty promises, now that there has been signs that these games are rigged after all.

This, under the illusion that www brings happiness and hope to the masses, by helping them out.

Pappy often emphasizes that www is "there to help", help who?

All they do is promote a culture of medicancy and a dole-out mentality.

With all the donations and pledges from viewers... all for a show pass and a chance to oggle luningning?

But are the donations accounted for and audited? Are the millions funneled into www really go the welfare projects?

All for the glory of higher ratings and the entertainment of the masses.

  • TAMA SI JOEY DE LEON!

    Alfie Lorenzo

    IPINALIWANAG ni Joey de Leon bilang bilang sagot sa pagsesentimiyento ni Willie Revillame nu’ng Huwebes nang tanghali sa "Eat Bulaga" ang banat sa kanya ni Willie nu’ng Miyerkules nang tanghali sa opening ng "Wowowee", na nag-iyak-iyakan nang walang luha ang lolo ng anak ni Meryll Soriano.

    Maliwanag pa sa sikat ng araw ang puntong Joey was driving at. Pero nagpasikut-sikot nga si Willie na hindi direktang ipinaliwanag ‘yung isyu.

    ‘Yung isyu lang naman ng dayaan ang tinatanong, na bakit hawak ni Willie ‘yung number 2, (as in Channel 2?), representing 2 million pesos, sa halip na nandoon ito sa nabuksang gulong na Zero ang laman?

    That day na nangyari ‘yung kapalpakan, or the next day dapat naipaliwanag ‘yung technical mistake kuno – eh ikinatuwiran ni Willie na wala naman daw nagrereklamo – eh may contestants ba naman kayang magrereklamo? Eh di natandaan sila ni Bentong at hindi na sila makapaglaro uli.

    Eh, ngayong may nakapuna at pinansin ‘yun, atsaka sila magpapaliwanag? Kung wala ngang intensyon at honest mistake nga ‘yun, dapat inisplika ang technical flow without anybody asking for it. ‘Yun ang maliwanag!

    At hindi ‘yung kung walang nakapuna, eh babalewalain na. May nakapansin man sa ordinaryong contestants, ano ang boses nila para pansinin ang reklamo? Naging national issue lang ‘yan dahil may pangalan ang nakapuna at nasa telebisyon, isina-ere.

    Matindi ang ebidensya ni Joey, may tape sila ng Wowowee nung maganap ang kapalpakan. What Cory Vidanes said on TV nung Thursday evening should have been the explanation nung bago mag-close ng araw na yun ang Wowowee, or the day after.

    Kaso may nagkibit-balikat lang. And this is what I have been explaining to my executive friends, which fall on deaf ears everytime I do so. Now, heto uli ang sunog which turned into a conflagration uli reminiscent of the Ultra tragedy.

    Ang kaso ay ganito uli - parang batang nahuling nang-uumit ng kendi sa candy jar caught red-handed na nakabuka na lang ang bibig, dumbfounded!

    During the height of the ultra tragedy I posed some solutions to their nerve-wracking brainstorming. Sinalo ko pa nga ang explanations on TV ni Willie, pati na ang pagbabawal ko na palitan ang title na "Wowowee" dahil magmumukhang pag-iwas ‘yun sa responsibilidad na idinulot ng pagkamatay ng maraming naghahangad na magkaroon ng konting barya.

    Pero naitsa-puwera na kami nung mapatay na ang sunog and the show was settled down back to its feet.

    Ngayon, tingnan natin kung anong mangyayari now that we stand behind sa magandang paliwanag at katuwiran ng isang Joey de Leon na pinanday na ng maraming masasaya, malulungkot, masasalimuot at magugulong kabanata ng buhay artista at pribado ng komedyanteng hindi maitumba ng alinmang panahon!

    And the flame rages on......


    ***

    Biro lang naman ‘yung kay Joey na "bago ang Hello Garci, ‘yung Hello Pappi muna" ang imbestigahan! Na sinundan agad ni Joey ng uso ngayong joke! joke! joke! (sa mga sinaunang mga matatanda: biro lang po!) aba at may mga senador na nagseryoso at may bantang mag-iimbestiga nga raw, oh!

    Pakinggan sana ng mga kapuwa niya senador ang pakiusap ni Senador Chiz Escudero na huwag nang patulan ang patutsadahan dahil mas maraming dapat harapin ang senado. Huwag na po mga pogi at ibinoto naming mga senador at baka maakusahan naman kayo na gusto lang magpa-pogi uli. Sabagay ako man ay disappointed na sa mga naunang mga senador na inaasahan nating malaki ang magagawa para sa kapakanan ng milyones na taong-bayan, pero imbestiga lang nang imbestiga na nauuwi lang naman sa awayan at pagkakahati-hati – hayun tuloy, "divided we fall ...or fail?"

    Dapat paalalahanan ng management si Willie Revillame to put up a good front para sa scandal-prone na Wowowee. Pangatlo na itong sinasabing "dayaan" (pero kapabayaan pala!). They always come in threes.

    Una ‘yung Ultra tragedy. Na salamat na lang at naligtas ni Sec. Gonzales si Willie sa maaring murder case na ikaso sa kanya.

    Second ‘yung eskandalo tungkol sa mga contestants na nakakasali lang pala dahil sa may taong nagmanipula para makapaglaro ang mga yun, at makunan ng komisyon! May parte ang taong ‘yun sa bawa’t sentimo na mapanalunan ng kinukuha nilang contestants. Naglahong parang bula ang naturang tao na ka-apelyido pa mandin ng dating direktor ng Wowowee.

    Heto at na-mana ni Manahan bilang bagong direktor ang ikatlong kapalpakan. These guys should have had the intelligence na kundi pa perfect ‘yung gagamitin nilang machine, eh di sana hindi muna ginamit! Ewan ko ba sa bahala na attitudes nila na kesyo pinapanood kasi sila, kesyo dinarayo sila ng TFC subscribers (sandali nga po, hindi ba at kami rin ang sumulat ng suggestion na ‘yan na ‘yung mga nag-studio tour ay sa Wowowee ang ending nila to inform their relatives in whatever counties and states they came from that they have arrived safely - sey ko pa na i-tie-up kay Secretary Ace Durano - asan na si Alfie Lorenzo ngayon - still barking at the wrong trees?).

    So hayan, sino na naman ang nakakabog (palagi naman, ah!) sa kanila kundi ‘yung lumalampaso rin sa kanila sa ratings game?

    Where will this mess end na naman kaya? Into oblivion - saan pa? Basta may mga experts sa deadmahan game – they will end up dead at walang mah-kakaalam at walang mah-kakaalala! Ganyan naman sa showbiz entertainment - you’re only good when you entertain. When you become boring at paulit-ulit na lang sa karnabal lang talaga ang ending mo!

    Congrats uli sa SOP, nilampaso na naman ang kalaban at katapat na Sunday show. Bongga kasi ang birthday tribute ng SOP para sa Regal matriarch na kung tutuusin ay dapat ABS-CBN ang nagbigay ng parangal dahil si Mother Lily and her Regal Babies ang tumulong para maitayo muli ang Channel 2. How can some people be so insensitive and forgetful when they’re not even in their "prime"?

    Well, anong wisdom ko? Nothing on earth is permanent. Laging nasa huli ang pagsisisi. Pero, ‘yung mga marunong lumingon sa pinagmulan nila, stays longer to teach others what they failed to do!

    AMEN!
  • hindi ko na talaga maintindihan ang emotion ni willie revillame, ang gulo gulo talaga...

    sabi niya sa wowowee on august 29, 2007:

    "Ikaw na ang bida, ikaw na ang number one, sa iyo na ang ratings, ikaw na!
    Sige, Eat Bulaga! na ang number one!" Willie cried out..


    sabi niya sa wowowee on august 30, 2007:

    nakunan siya ng cameraman na close up tapos ang sinabi niya "number 1, number 1, number 1 wowowee!"
    na pasigaw na salita sa harap ng camera na nangaasar pa sa harap ng camera..


    hindi ko na talaga maintindihan ang emotion ni willie revillame, ang gulo gulo talaga!
  • ‘Wowowee’ nagpasaklolo sa movie reporters - Alfie Lorenzo

    Kung meron mang mga PRO ang Wowowee pati na mga isinasama nila sa mga biyahe sa mga probinsya at mga kabilanin na mga reporter na sa pera lang tumitingin, bukod pa sa mga kumakampi kay Willie Revillame, heto na ang Philippine Movie Press Club (summoned kaya by Allan Diones and Rommel Gonzales?) na may fundraising daw for themselves para daw sa members nila na wala nang chuva-tienes (according to past president Letty Celi), mga members na ipinagbibili ang boto for awards (remember the infamous 5 thousand pesos per vote for the best actor and best actress awards na alok daw ni Rykka Dilim na inisnab ng PMPC president noon na si Joe Barrameda at kina Vilma Santos at Dennis Trillo ini-award ‘yung mga binibili na ibinuko ng whistleblowers na Allan Diones at Rommel Gonzales?).

    Ang pagkakataon nga naman, daig pa ang sinadya. Timing na timing naman at nagkataon lang ba na may fundraising ang PMPC o nakita nila itong away ni Willie with Joey de Leon para mas madali silang maka-raise ng funds?

    Hayun at sila raw ang maglalaro mamaya sa questionable na ‘Wilyonaryo.’

    Sila kaya ang mag-uuwi ng 2 milyon na ‘hawak’ ni Willie sa mga kamay niya?

    Watch tayo para naman matalo sa ratings ang Eat Bulaga this Saturday, huh!
    Inanunsyo na si Willie Revillame raw ay sasagutin si Joey de Leon mamaya sa Entertainment Live (at sana, lubos kaming ma-entertain, huh! Baka mas kapaki-pakinabang pang manood ng ‘Chika Mo, Chika Ko’ sa UNTV 21 mamayang 6:00-7:00 PM, huh! pramis!), as if naman hindi rin babanat si Joey sa Startalk, ‘noh!

    Abangan at pakapansinin at namnamin kung sino ang magaling mangatwiran, sino ang magaan magpaliwanag at sino ang nagpapaliku-liko sa kung saan-saang kanto! Abangan!

    ***

    Nung una ay sinunod, ngayon ay inulit na naman. Sadya bang wala silang mga isip?
    Kahapon ay mga bata ang naglaro sa bigat 10. Sukat ba namang ang nakalaban ng bata eh mga matatanda na komo nauna na sa mundong ito eh mas alam ang malalalim na wikang pambansa. Anong panlaban ng bata?
    Pumatol ba sa bata!
    Eh pag naman tinalo ng bata ‘yung matatanda, ano na naman ang masasabi -- dinaya na naman?
    Wala silang lusot, ha!

    Tito, Vic, Joey want to help "Hello Papie" probe

    By Gil C. Cabacungan Jr.
    Inquirer
    Last updated 08:19pm (Mla time) 08/31/2007


    MANILA, Philippines -- The comedy trio Tito, Vic and Joey are keen on bringing their street smarts to the Senate, which is looking into the ``Hello Papie’’ controversy of their rival show.

    The comedy trio hosting the noontime TV program ``Eat Bulaga" on GMA 7 is willing to appear before the Senate to provide ``key inputs’’ on how to run a scam-proof game on television.

    Senators Manuel Roxas II, chairman of the committee on trade and commerce, Ramon Revilla Jr., of the committee on information and mass media, and Manuel Lapid, of the committee on games and amusement, have expressed interest in looking into the scandal.

    Roxas has already asked the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) to explain why they have failed to monitor these TV show contests to protect the interest of TV viewers.

    Roxas said the TV games were clearly part of the coverage of DTI, which was still verifying complaint against the show, because the TV viewers were like consumers that should be protected from being duped.

    Tito Sotto, a former senator, said he and his co-hosts -- Vic Sotto and Joey de Leon -- could help the lawmaker son the mechanics of TV games having had close to 30 years’ experience in hosting and crafting novelty games on the boob tube.

    Eat Bulaga started airing in 1979.

    ``We’re ready to volunteer our experience on how to host a TV game and how to ensure the integrity of these contests. We will tell them how these are run so that the host would not make a mistake,’’ said Sotto, a two-time senator who lost in his attempt to return to the Senate last May.

    The Senate is looking into the mounting verbal complaints against Willie Revillame, host of rival variety show "Wowowee," who was caught fumbling in revealing where the jackpot number ``2’’ in the show’s ``Wilyonaryo’’ portion was placed.

    Revillame claimed that he has nothing to explain because there have been no complaints, while Wowowee’s producer, ABS CBN Broadcasting Corp., has dismissed the incident as an honest mistake.

    But Sotto said it was ``too much a stretch’’ for ABS-CBN to claim that having two sets of numbers in the jackpot wheel because the video footage clearly showed that Revillame had control of what number to show.

    “Everybody can see the irregularity. You cannot afford to make a mistake here and you cannot put two numbers in one box,’’ said Sotto who noted that this incident has never happened in their show .

    ``There might have been one instance where we prematurely opened the jackpot number but never have we placed two numbers in one box,’’ said Sotto.

    De Leon earlier urged the Senate to turn its attention from the ``Hello Garci’’ scandal to the ``Hello Papie [Revillame’s pet name]’’ scandal because millions of TV viewers were concerned about the integrity of TV game shows. De Leon and Revillame had previously exchanged harsh words on their respective shows.

    sooo... there was an explanation (albeit... not as convincing as we want it to be).

    it took guts to admit that there were design flaws...

    i just hate it, when they flip-flop between "honest mistake", "mechanical glitch", and "design flaw"... parang naloloko na sila eh

    Fatal game-show stampede—an exploitation of social despair
    http://www.crowddynamics.com/Disasters/Wowowee.htm


    “Wowowee” is famous for its prize giveaways, and is very popular in the Philippines, where it is shown six days a week at midday. For this special anniversary show, prizes included cash of up to P1 million ($19,230), a car, taxis, and a house with land.

    These are huge prizes in a country where 40 percent of the population live on less than $2 per day. Data from the World Health Organisation give some insight into the poverty and social inequality that afflict millions of Filipinos. According to its latest official data, “in 2003, about 3.97 million families ... were living below the poverty line,” in a country where “the annual per capita poverty threshold reached P12 267 (US$ 220.64) in 2003, up by 7.1 percent compared with the 2000 level of P11 451 (US$ 205.96).” The World Bank cites 30 percent of the population living below the poverty line.

    “Wowowee,” produced by ABS-CBN, is pitched toward the most poor and desperate sections of the Philippine populace. According to Agence France-Presse, “Wowowee” host Willie Revillame stated after the stampede that “he had made it a point to stage the game shows at other provincial centers several times during the past year.... We would pick places where the poor are hard-up.”

    “This is a program that intends to help Filipinos, especially the poor,” he claimed. In reality the show is based on the exploitation of the emotional responses of impoverished people, where chances of winning a prize are miniscule.

    The people outside the PhilSports arena on Saturday were drawn from poor communities in Manila and more distant provinces. Susan Doblin told Reuters, “We’re very poor. I waited for days outside to try our luck. This is a rare chance for us to win a million pesos.”

    The Manila Times quotes Zenaida Campanero, explaining, “We also did not have sleep, many had not slept for days, and with only biscuits to eat and water.” A man in his 20s told the Observer, “‘My mother came here hoping to win a prize,’... holding her dead hand and sobbing.”

    Such is the level of desperation that police chief Vidal Querol explained, “The dead were lined up on the streets, but people still did not want to go home. It was bizarre. They persisted in entering the PhilSports Arena and demanded that the show go on. Many people were still waiting for tickets although bodies were piling up.” According to Querol, even after dead bodies lay strewn on the entrance road, “People stepped over the bodies and continued to make their way into the stadium.”

    Ms. mykaz, di porke nagtratrabaho ako sa ABS-CBN ay dapat na mahalin ko lahat ng programa at artista dito.

    FYI, definition ng term "kapamilyuck"- yung mga rabid at fanatic na fans ng mga artista at palabas ng ABS-CBN- na susungaban at kakagatin ang lahat ng sumasalungat o kokontra sa kanila. :glee:

    unlike yung mga civilized na "Kapamilya"- na tanggap nila na may healthy competition, at di lahat ng usapan nauuwi sa asaran, diversion, o pag-o-okray ;)

    I like ABS-CBN in general but I loathe WIllie Revillame and Wowowee, o sana ay naging malinaw sa iyo ;)
