Good Rockin' Tonite was a Canadian television series, which aired on CBC Television from the early 1980s to 1993. The program's original host was Terry David Mulligan, who left to join MuchMusic in 1985. He was replaced by Stu Jeffries.

The program, similar to the American Friday Night Videos, played popular music videos. It was produced at CBUT Vancouver and, at its peak (1984-85), aired two 90-minute shows a week, Thursdays and Fridays; eventually this was reduced to a single 60-minute show, which aired on Friday nights at midnight. The program also featured interviews with musicians, viewer contests and a countdown of the week's most popular singles and albums.

The program typically aired popular music videos interspersed with interviews of popular musicians who were passing through Vancouver while on promotional and performing tours. Along with CBC's daily daytime music video program Video Hits, the programs represented the only options for Canadian viewers of the mid-1980s to see music video programming outside of cable TV.
