2015-present: New show of Boy Abunda as a hostEdit

In September 2015, Aquino announced her departure from the show, citing her health reasons and her taping commitments for Kris TV and her two films, which paved way for the cancellation of Aquino & Abunda Tonight on September 25 after one year, and the transition to the newest talk show with Abunda as the host, entitled Tonight with Boy Abunda for which Abunda cited it will serve as a transitional show.[3][4]
