Gandang Gabi Vice aired its final episode on March 8, 2020.
Vice Ganda's ABS-CBN talk show ended its nine-year run by featuring TV5 host Raffy Tulfo.
"Matagal na po kami magkakilala," Vice Ganda revealed to his audience.
"Bagito pa lang ako sa comedy bar, sinusuportahan na ako ni Sir Raffy Tulfo at ng pamilya niya.
"Hindi lang ako..Matagal na kaming magkakilala at naka-experience ng kabutihang loob mo at ng pamilya niyo.
"Ngayon po, gusto kong magpasalamat."
Raffy said with a smile, "Anytime."
Vice Ganda asked Raffy to recall when he started watching him in comedy bars.
"Dekada na, e," admitted Raffy.
At one point, Raffy teased Vice Ganda, "Super sikat ka na, super yaman na. Sa sobrang yaman mo, ang dami mong boyfriend."
Towards the end of Raffy's interview, he said to Vice Ganda: "May mga nagsumbong sa akin."
Raffy then told them to play the video showing the "complaints" against Vice Ganda.
Several persons had their faces covered while talking about the ridiculous things they had to do on the Kapamilya show.
"Kasi po nung nag-guest ako sa GGV, pinakanta ako ng 'Pangarap Ko ang Ibigin Ka' ni Regine Velasquez habang nakadapa, habang nakaupo, saka habang naka-mouthguard."
It turned out that this "complainant" was Morissette Amon, who said with a laugh: "Dahil sa challenge na ito, nag-start iyon ng mga challenges dito sa Pilipinas. I'm very, very grateful for the trust and opportunity. Ate Vice, maraming salamat. Love you! Thank you po."
A woman with her face covered with a sarong then said about Vice Ganda: "Sinisiraan niya po ako, sinasabi niya sa lahat na lasing ako pag nagsasalita."
When the sarong was removed, the woman turned out to be Moira dela Torre, who also gave thanks to the TV host-comedian.
Another mystery complainant recalled:
"Magsusumbong lang ako, kasi lagi akong nabubudol ng GGV. Lagi nila akong pinapapunta diyan kapag hirap na hirap na ako sa pinagdadaanan ko. Ang gingagawa po niyan, lalo na si Vice, pinagtatawanan lang kung anong nangyayari sa buhay ko kahit talagang hirap na hirap na ako.
"Tapos pinapaiyak niya ako para tumaas ang ratings ng show nila. Niloloko po nila ako, pinagti-trip-an nila ako. Pinagti-trip-an nila ang emosyon ko. Tapos sila lang naman ang nakikinabang talaga!"
Angelica Panganiban was revealed as the mystery complainant.
She said, smiling: "Gustong-gusto ko talaga magpasalamat kasi naging venue ang GGV para kung ano man ang pinagdadaanan ko noon sa buhay, masaya man o malungkot, masakit, sila ang naging platform para pagtawanan ko o gumaan ang nararamdaman kong hirap noon.
"Siyempre, nadadaan namin ni Ate Vice sa kulitan na nauuwi sa iyakan minsan.
"Marami rin naman akong natututunan talaga kahit sa sarili ko. Hindi ko naiisip na aabot ako dun sa point na may mga tao akong mai-inspire dahil sa mga trahedyang nangyayari sa buhay ko.
"Maraming, maraming salamat sa GGV."
GGV will be replaced by the new show Everybody, Sing! which is described as the Kapamilya network’s “first community singing game show,” and which Vice Ganda will also host.
KAPUSO MO, JESSICA SOHO
For its March 8 episode, Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho, the rival program of Gandang Gabi Vice, featured Manila Mayor Isko Moreno and paranormal investigator Ed Caluag.

Ed said that he felt there were disturbed spirits living in the dungeons.
Jessica, Ed, and Isko also visited the restored Jones Bridge.

Isko himself said that some of his staff members have already had eerie experiences inside the building.
Ed told Isko and Jessica that he felt the spirit of a crying lady standing by the window of Manila City Hall’s clock tower.
