Who Wants to be a Millionaire pilot episode marks highest-rating for TV5

So sad that I missed the pilot episode and I heard to some friends that the show is good and the revamp is well done. A friend told me too that TV5 should get the Weakest Link too. I know pinoys will go crazy again watching tv game shows and million pesos worth of prizes. Me and family are hooked to this show years ago, and If ever I get my butt glued at home, I will watch the 2nd show this Saturday at 6pm in TV5.



TV5 has indeed unleashed a major player to Saturday primetime TV competition with Who Wants to be a Millionaire?, posing a big threat to the network wars as it posted high ratings during its pilot episode last Saturday.

Hundreds of thousands of viewers who were excited and curious of how the comeback of the international top-rating gameshow would go made sure they were home at 6:00 pm watching TV5. Now hosted by veteran comedian Vic Sotto, the premiere was truly a success as Who Wants to be a Millionaire? marked the channel's highest-rating pilot episode within its genre.

As TV5 Senior VP for Brand Management Jasper Evangelista expresses, "We're very pleased with the high ratings that Who Wants to be a Millionaire? posted on its pilot episode. We actually received a lot of positive feedback from our viewers, colleagues, and advertisers on how good the show is and how great Vic handles the hosting. We're all excited for the next episodes because for sure, the viewership will expand even more. With Who Wants to be a Millionaire?, everybody now has a reason to be home every Saturday at 6 p.m."

With 10 celebrity contestants who felt both excited and very nervous, the first round set off with DJ Mo Twister emerging as the fastest finger winner and as the first ever contestant to get on the hot seat face-to-face with host Vic Sotto. Indeed, experience isn’t after all the key to winning in the game show because ironically, the round ended for DJ Mo with a music trivia question regarding Freddie Aguilar’s award-winning Metropop song, Bulag, Pipi, at Bingi, considering his 14 years of experience as a DJ. Teen star Megan Young, whose hands were really cold as she nervously played on the second round, missed out on a question regarding Barbie Doll’s birthday. Slated to play next week is the last fastest finger winner, Polo Ravales who was anxiously seated beside ex-girlfriend Ara Mina. Find out if he’s going to fare better than the past two celebrities.

Catch and join Who Wants to be a Millionaire? and find out how you too can live the millionaire dream as it dominates the ratings and shakes Primetime TV every Saturday, 6 p.m., only on TV5.

This Sunday will mark the dancing debut of world boxing champ Manny Pacquiao's mother—Mommy Dionisia on TV. A self-confessed ballroom dancing junkie, she joins the challenge in TV5's Shall We Dance, hosted by Lucy Torres-Gomez.

Speculations that the "Pacmom" will soon enter showbiz are spreading, and as she quickly gains popularity with her terpsichorean talent and her love for ballroom dancing, it is only plausible for her to first showcase her talent in Shall We Dance.

Awesome experience at SM City North Edsa Sky Garden

http://photos-f.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs006.snc1/4427_104189849275_567879275_2663037_3349737_n.jpg
Growing up in the Philippines is the best ever experience in my life and the things around me is very important and I treasure it. Even that my family is now in the USA, I still keep all those great memories of me and my family hanging out every weekend in restaurants and malls. And one of the best mall experience I have with my family is at SM City North Edsa. The mall just transformed and I'm very happy on its expansion and with the rise of its Sky Garden, The Block and the expanded Annex, SM City North Edsa is now the largest and biggest mall in Asia and also in the Philippines.

(read more below)


http://photos-b.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs006.snc1/4427_104190794275_567879275_2663065_2715661_n.jpg
Everyone is babbling about the Sky Garden even during its construction, I felt sad in the first place after knowing that they will remove the car park area of the mall, I love that place because of that I play all my sports activity like skateboarding, bmx, and inline skating or rollerblading during my late highschool years and I go there every Saturday with my friends and do our extreme and aggressive sports. I have lots of memories in the area and its funny to remember it again and now I'm starting to miss the old SM City North Edsa.

But it's okay, seeing the new structure and expansion of the mall makes me happy too, and because of the rise Sky Garden, many mall goers and visitors will embrace nature once again as the Sky Garden has lots of trees and grass over that long elevated curvilinear park infront of The Block. It connects people crossing and walking from the Edsa and going to each section of the mall to The Block, Annex and City Center. There are waterscapes, lush lands, plants, and breeze of the windy green nature even you are in the middle of the city. The Sky Garden transformed the part of Manila into an alternative environmental sanctuary, with lots of green, ponds, cool air and even birds visit the area every 5:00 PM. A bird watching activity was also held and happy to see maya birds roaming around the green hill and tress of Sky Garden.

The Roof Garden covers the mall goers and guides them to the path of stores, restaurants, cafe and entertainment hubs of Sky Garden, while walking I noticed a lots of great view in the area, there are art sculptures and a dramatic scene of a cafe in the middle of the watery pond and bonsai trees.

The Sky Dome is the best structure for me. It looks like a mini Araneta Coliseum and even before it was built, I've been hearing lots of news already about the venue. My first experience to visit the Sky Dome (formerly called Sky Garden Amphi Theater) was last Saturday's Jack TV Animation Festival. That was my first experience and I just love the look of the inside of the Sky Dome, it was also my first time in Sky Garden and I truly fell in love with the place during my first visit. I visited the venue again with my blogger friends and I fell in love again to the great attractions and also comfy space of the Sky Garden, it's hard to explain my experience and even that I felt sad in not seeing the old SM City North Edsa, there's a time that we accept change and growth to everyone around us and even to our selves.

There are also sculptures around the Sky Garden and its done by artist Joel Ferraris, you can see some of his works at his blog http://joelferraris.blogspot.com/2009/06/skygarden-sculptures.html

Here's my take on what I see during
