Tonight with Boy Abunda
On February 10, 2014, almost 3 years after SNN ended, a similar format of the show, this time focusing on everyday issues involved in the country and inside stories on every known personality, was formed. The original hosts of SNN reunited in the new show called Aquino & Abunda Tonight.
The show begins with a news segment identified as the topic of the evening's poll question, which home viewers can vote for through text messaging. The results of the informal poll is revealed at the end of the show. On its first year, a new segment, "Isang Tanong, Isang Sagot," was introduced. It aims to answer showbiz questions taken from Twitter and Facebook followers of the show on or before the show ends.

The Buzz hosts Boy Abunda and Kris Aquino were placed as the new anchors of this program and it aired its first episode on February 16, 2009. During this time, their morning talk show Boy & Kris was at the peak of the ratings game. Once they were tapped as the new anchors, the talk show was then placed by another with Ruffa Gutierrez and Ai-Ai de las Alas as the new hosts in the show Ruffa & Ai.
In 2010, Kris Aquino decided to take a leave from SNN to campaign for her brother Noynoy Aquino who is running for the presidency, during which time Toni Gonzaga, Mariel Rodriguez and Bianca Gonzalez were guest anchors. Aquino announced that she will be leaving SNN and The Buzz near the end of June to spend time with her family and not cause issues while her brother is in office as president. In 2010, Bianca Gonzalez, who was a guest host and temporary fill-in for Aquino, permanently replaced her to join Abunda. On September 9, 2011, SNN aired its final broadcast as Boy Abunda will now join Bandila.
