OverviewEdit

The program originally aired on Friday late nights before it was eventually transferred to Saturday afternoons in July 2012.[4][5]

On March 21 to May 2, 2020, S.O.C.O. was temporarily suspended when it temporarily stopped airing new episodes due to the quarantine caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and ABS-CBN stopped its free-to-air broadcast operations as ordered by the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) due to the lapsing of the network's legislative franchise. As a result, the program released new episodes through its social media accounts.[6]

On June 13, 2020, the program returned via pay television network Kapamilya Channel. On October 17, 2020, the program ended to give way to the third season of I Can See Your Voice.[7]

S.O.C.O. is also aired on DZMM TeleRadyo initially as first-run on September 8, 2011, every Thursday at 9:15 PM. This edition ran for eleven months until July 6, 2012. On April 20, 2017, the program returned to DZMM TeleRadyo as a rerun of its previous episodes, which airs every Thursday at 2:00 PM and Friday at 1:00 AM.

Radio programEdit

S.O.C.O. sa DZMM is also aired every Saturdays at 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM on DZMM Radyo Patrol 630 and DZMM TeleRadyo. The program is anchored by Gus Abelgas and David Oro.
