From March 16, 2020, until May 4, 2020, due to the Luzon enhanced community quarantine caused by the COVID-19 pandemic in the Philippines, Tonight with Boy Abunda temporarily suspended production of its new episodes and temporarily aired re-runs until the temporary closure of ABS-CBN because of the cease and desist order of the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC), following the expiration of the network's 25-year franchise granted in 1995.
