Today with Kris Aquino was a Philippine talk show hosted by actress Kris Aquino which premiered on October 28, 1996 on ABS-CBN. It is claimed by some as the Philippines' version of The Oprah Winfrey Show. It was where Aquino got her title as the "Philippines' Queen of Talk." The theme song was sung by Zsa Zsa Padilla.


Today with Kris Aquino became the launching show for Aquino since she left GMA Network in 1996. On February 24, 1997, it transferred its timeslot from afternoon (4:00pm) to morning (11:00am), replacing the defunct talk show Teysi ng Tahanan. It also expanded its running time from 30 minutes to 1 hour.

On March 9, 2001, the show ended due to Noli de Castro's decision to run for the senate and leave TV Patrol. Korina Sanchez, who was then hosting Balitang K, was appointed to anchor TV Patrol. With these changes, Aquino was appointed to replace Sanchez, reformatting the show to Balitang Kris. Today with Kris Aquino was replaced by Talk TV.

In May 2011, Aquino announced that the show would be back on air again on June 2011, a decade after it ended.[1][2] A few days, Aquino said the show would not be revived and instead she would start a talk show with a new title, Kris TV.[3]

Theme song[edit]

I know, no need to be reminded
Only the truth will set you free
Look who's who and what's going on
Reach out and talk to me
Come on, What's on your mind?
Give me a sign. Don't waste my time.
I know you don't need to be reminded,
Only the truth can set you free.
Look who's who and what's going on
...You can't hide it, 'coz I'll find it.
Just reach out and talk to me.
