On Monday, March 18, ABS-CBN launched a new program lineup on prime time after its current shows temporarily went off the air.

This is, of course, in line with the community quarantine declared in Metro Manila, which prompted ABS-CBN to suspend production of its teleseryes and entertainment programs.

Currently, reruns of 100 Days To Heaven, May Bukas Pa, On The Wings of Love, and the iWant original series I Am U filled in the respective time slots of Pamilya Ko, FPJ's Ang Probinsyano, Make It With You, and A Soldier's Heart.

Meanwhile, GMA-7 remained on regular programming last Monday.
