ABS-CBN's long-running variety show, ASAP, is celebrating its 25th year on television this 2020.
The Kapamilya variety show, which now goes by the title ASAP Natin 'To, launched a teaser for its 25th anniversary kick-off last December 22, 2019.
The 16-second teaser projects the No. 25 onscreen. This number transforms to 01.05.2020, or January 5, 2020, the date of the anniversary kick-off.
The teaser then shows the silver logo of ASAP Natin 'To, which symbolizes the show's 25th anniversary.
ASAP first premiered on television on February 5, 1995. It underwent several reformats and casting changes throughout its 25 years on Philippine TV.
At present, Sarah Geronimo, Zsa Zsa Padilla, Martin Nievera, Erik Santos, and Gary Valenciano are the show's main hosts.
Regine Velasquez-Alcasid and Ogie Alcasid, once frontliners for ASAP's former rival program, SOP, now serve as headliners for ASAP Natin 'To.
Johnny Manahan directs.
ASAP Natin 'To's 25th anniversary kick-off will go head-to-head against the pilot episode of GMA-7's Sunday variety program, All Out Sundays.
All Out Sundays or AOS—previously announced as All Out Sunday or AyOS—has been promoting its premiere actively since the first week of December.
AOS is headlined by Alden Richards, Julie Anne San Jose, Rayver Cruz, Christian Bautista, Mark Bautista, and Aicelle Santos, along with other Kapuso talents.
