The Bottomline with Boy Abunda


Watch the Philippines' King of Talk, Boy Abunda, in this one of a kind talk show that is as incisive as it is unique in its format and high in concept: The Bottom Line. Every night, Boy Abunda will be joined by a select group of Bottom Liners on different sides of the issue and from different walks of life, all of them with questions that demand an answer. Tito Boy himself will conduct the interview, moderating the discussion and extracting the answers to the questions that the Bottomliners wish to pose to the guest. It’s a talk show that is not all just banter but heavy on process and procedure. Truly a talk show program unlike any other!
