ABS-CBN's 23-year-old Sunday variety show recently implemented changes in its format.
Last Sunday, November 18, viewers had the chance to see the new ASAP, which is now called ASAP Natin ‘To!
It will be recalled that the Kapamilya Network previously tried to change its format in 2015 by incorporating musical skits and games in its lineup.
ASAP NATIN 'TO
According to ABS-CBN, the new format of ASAP Natin ‘To! aims to offer a "celebration of real stories and real people."
Former Kapuso Regine Velasquez-Alcasid had the chance to share the stage with Sarah Geronimo during last Sunday's episode.
Sarah and Regine had the chance to sing a duet for "Isa Pang Araw,” which is part of the soundtrack of Sarah's latest movie titled Miss Granny.
After their number, Regine told Sarah: "Kaya gustong-gusto ko rin mapabilang bailang isang Kapamilya ay dahil sa iyo. Gusto kitang makasama, matagal na!"
Asia's Songbird also said about Sarah: "I treat you like one of the members of my family."
When the show ended, ABS-CBN aired its 2018 Christmas station ID titled "Family is Love."
One of the higlights of the November 19 episode of Sunday Pinasaya was the skit of Dennis Trillo and Dingdong Dantes.
The two actors are the lead stars of the GMA-7 prime-time series Cain at Abel. Their show will air its pilot episode tonight, November 19.
Before the show ended, GMA-7 aired its 2018 Christmas station ID titled "Ipadama ang Puso ng Pasko."
