MTRCB puts 'Wowowillie' under probation over skimpy outfits

The Movie Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) has placed TV5's noontime show "Wowowillie" under probation for three months.

The show, hosted by Willie Revillame, was also subjected to Strong Parental Guidance (SPG) classification effective immediately.

"At today's hearing conducted by the MTRCB's Ad Hoc Committee on the skimpy outfits and excessive flesh exposure in Wowowillie's 16 April 2013 & other episodes, TV5 and the said show accepted responsibility for the said lapses and apologized to the MTRCB," a statement from MTRCB read.

"The MTRCB, through the panel, ordered placing the program under probation, subjecting it to per-episode review for 3 months, and subjecting it to an SPG (Strong Parental Guidance) rating effective immediately. Tv5 and Wowowillie were further required to submit reform and self-regulatory measures by 06 May 2013," it added.

MTRCB called the show's attention over its April 16 episode where dancers wore revealing outfits during one of the segments. Last month, the agency also called the attention of "Wowowillie" after Willie lambasted on live airing his co-hosts Ethel Booba and Ate Gay.
