Gandang Gabi, Vice! (lit.Good Evening, Vice!) is a Filipino comedy talk show on ABS-CBN network hosted by Vice Ganda.[1] The show focuses on interviews and comedic interactive segments with celebrity guests, and from time to time, also features live acts from various performers. The show was originally intended for only thirteen episodes, but after the announcement of the show's planned end on February 19, 2012, due to the enormous feedback requesting the renewal of the show, it was announced that the supposed end of the show was only to be the finale of the first season, and that the show will continue with a second season the following week.[2] During its early incarnations, the show was tagged as "the Trending Capital of the Philippines" due to its consistent trending on the micro-social networking site Twitter.


The show frequently opens with opening act composing of a song either sung by Vice Ganda or another featured musician, and a dance performance onstage (commonly finalists from Vice's other show Showtime). Afterwards, the host introduces the show and the featured guests in the episode, including an unidentified guest who will star on the show later. After a commercial, guests are introduced during each of the show's segments. One segment, titled Vice Advice, features Vice and her guest/s giving advices to citizens onstage or from the show's official site in the social networking sites Facebook and Twitter. The segment ends with a composed song likewise giving a message to the latter. This segment changed its format on the show's fifth episode. In the new format, Vice will draw questions in a crystal ball containing questions that were posted by the followers on the show's Twitter and she will try to answer hilariously as many questions as she can for one minute. After that, she will present a certain issue and will ask an audience his/her opinion regarding the issue. The segment still ends with a composed song pertaining to the issue tackled.

After all guests have been interviewed, Vice closes the show with a challenge, wherein audience members participate in a game or prank to win various prizes. All segments are serenaded by a band led by musical director Marvin Querido.

The show and its first season premiered its pilot episode on May 22, 2011, and has since aired every Sunday night at 9:45 PM (PST) on ABS-CBN. The first season is originally set for thirteen episodes but was extended due to positive reviews from the audience. Due to additional show named Sarah G. Live, the first episode of the second season was moved to 10:15 PM (PST) on ABS-CBN. On October 27, 2012, the show was temporarily moved earlier at 9:30 PM (PST) filling the vacant of the weekend reality show. The show was later moved to 9:15 PM (PST) in 2013.[2]
