Martin Late @ Night (lit. Martin Late at Night) was a musical nightly talk show hosted by Martin Nievera. It is a spin-off of the defunct show Martin Late @ Nite which aired from 1998 to 2003.[1][2][3][4][5][6]


The show airs every Friday nights at 11:30 pm–12:15 am after Bandila with another late-night show Banana Nite, a spin-off of Banana Split, that airs Mondays through Thursdays.[1][7]

In 2011, the possibility of the show was first hinted during Nievera's contract signing for ABS-CBN.[8] One of his reasons for signing the contract was the show. He told in an interview with the Philippine Entertainment Portal, "When I finally got my contract from ABS-CBN, I finally have a contract and they've included one show[...] I only signed it when they said it's a talk show."[9]

On February 19, 2013, Nievera officially confirmed the show in his personal Twitter account.[1][10] A teaser for the show was released on February 23, 2013 featuring Nievera dubbed as the "Big Mouth".[7][11][12]

Since its first airing, the show was not well received and met low television ratings. From April 25–27, 2013, Nievera posted through his Twitter account a series of statements showing his grievance over the ABS-CBN Network executives for their "lack of support [on the show]." He said "You [ABS-CBN executives] can't blame me if I'm not rating like the prime-time shows if you don't support me like you support them. No band, no live audience? How?" He continued "I know I am no 'teleserye' or noontime show. But if I had [that much] support I would last longer. [I] can't stay in the fight alone. So sad."[13][14][15] On May 1, the host expressed his apologies to the network executives and told he is "not upset."[16]

In early May 2013, ABS-CBN confirmed the show's cancellation effective on May 31, 2013.[16]


The final episode's guests was the Popstar Princess and certified Box Office Queen Sarah Geronimo with the Prince of Pop Erik Santos.
