Sa Linggo nAPO Sila (they are now on sunday) is a Philippine musical-variety show that aired on ABS-CBN from December 3, 1989 to January 29, 1995. The show aired live from the Studio 3 ABS-CBN Broadcasting Center in Quezon City. The show competed with GMA Supershow but when Eat Bulaga! moved to GMA Network from ABS-CBN, the management later announced they will move the APO Hiking Society and the rest of their co-hosts to the daily noontime slot and renamed as 'Sang Linggo nAPO Sila (They Are Now On All Week) to fill the void in ABS-CBN's weekday lineup. Sa Linggo nAPO Sila went its final airing after six years on January 29, 1995, and was replaced by ASAP.

Critical response edit

In March 1992, Angela Stuart Santiago of the Manila Standard criticized the show's lack of professionalism, stating that "Jim, Danny, and Boboy rarely know the lyrics of the songs they sing; often their numbers with guests and female co-hosts turn out like amateur karaoke affairs, out of tune and out of synch [sic]."[1]
