2000: Silverio PérezEdit
In 2000, Anda Pa'l Cara began, with Silverio Pérez as host. During this first year, Pérez focused more on a late night talk show format with a slight focus on political commentary. During this time the show counted with Gabriel Ferri as creative director.
2001-2003: Luis Raúl and Gricel MameryEdit
When Pérez left the show, most people thought its popularity would decline. However, the combination of new hosts - comedian Luis Raúl and Gricel Mamery - and their chemistry, kept the show alive on the charts.
During their run, the show changed its format to one more oriented to comedy sketches benefitting from Luis Raúl talent. He brought most of his well-known characters, and several new ones, to the show, infusing it with a lighter format.
2003-2005: Luis Raúl leavesEdit
Again, when Luis Raúl left the show in 2003, many thought that audiences would reject the change. A long casting process ensued, and Venezuelan host Daniel Sarcos was picked to join Mamery. Known Puerto Rican host, Sonya Cortes, was also chosen to complete the trio of hosts. This decision angered many local celebrities, who argued the election of a foreign host over a Puerto Rican one. However, after a few months, legal problems concerning Sarcos visa didn't allow him to continue working, and Puerto Rican Rafael José was chosen to replace him.
José mostly kept the previous format intact doing comedy sketches, albeit with a slight turn into a more celebrity oriented show. Most audiences embraced the selection and the show kept performing well. José would remain in the show until 2006 when he left to work in the United States. The year before, Mamery had also left the show.
2006-2009: Youngest vision, Rony, Sonya and AlexandraEdit
In 2005, when Mamery left the show, she was replaced by young host Alexandra Fuentes. Curiously enough, Fuentes used to play a parody of Mamery in the show Salvese Quien Pueda on WKAQ-TV. The following year, radio host, Rony the Hyper joined the cast in a transition move before José left the show. This season was the most successful of the show's history. and was produced by: Soraya Sanchez- Executive Producer, Nelson Ruiz- Executive Producer, Diana Matos- General Producer, Michell Santiago-Associate Producer/ General Producer ( Covers the General Producer when she's absent), Orlando Sanchez- Line Producer/ Associate Producer ( Covers the associate producers when she's absent), Beatriz Oliveros- Producer, Yamilin Rivera- Guest Producer, Angel Mercado- Creative Producer, Karoll Nieves- Exterior Producer, Lisette Letriz- Editor Producer, Javier Maldonado- Editor Producer, Yesibel Perez- Producer, Joselo Perez - Media Producer, Maria Ramos- Production Assistance, Alexis Gonzales - Production Assistance, Mary Luz Cintron- Production Assistance.
