Sharon is Philippine TV's Sunday night musical talk show that airs on ABS-CBN. It stars Sharon Cuneta.

The musical gab fest served as Cuneta's TV comeback in 1998 after a year of hiatus from show business. The show had a successful six-year run becoming a top rating weekly program and clinched Best Talk Show honors and Best Talk Show Host accolades for Cuneta, who took yet another break from TV in 2004 and returned in 2006 via the latest incarnation of the Sharon show. The show has been honored as Best Entertainment Program of 2007 by the Catholic Mass Media Awards and was highy commended in the Asian TV Awards. In 2009, the show topped the Sunday night TV rating game and continues its winning streak in 2010 starting off with the Megastar's birthday bash, showbiz's most awaited new year salvo.

On an August 2010 episode, Sharon herself confirmed that the show will be axed and will be replaced by "Star Power", which she co- hosted with singers Christian Bautista and Erik Santos on October 2010.

Following Cuneta's transfer to TV5 in 2011, a new talk show was commissioned titled Sharon: Kasama Mo, Kapatid which aired from May 14, 2012, to January 4, 2013.
