It all began when Eat Bulaga! moved to another network on January 21, 1995. ABS-CBN then moved the long-running and much syndicated "Sa Linggo nAPO Sila" to the former's time slot at noontime daily. To replace the show, ASAP was born.
For the first time on TV, the new show brought together four of the most well-known personalities in their respective fields: "Concert King" Martin Nievera, "Concert Queen" Pops Fernandez, singer and matinee idol Ariel Rivera, and Miss Universe 1993 and "Dancing Queen" Dayanara Torres. This unprecedented move redefined noontime shows in the country.
Along with the four main hsots, ASAP made another first by showcasing then upcoming teenage stars from ABS-CBN's Talent Center and the "Pare Ko" cast: Claudine Barretto, Jao Mapa, Gio Alvarez, Roselle Nava, Victor Neri, Nikka Valencia and Jolina Magdangal. They were later joined by Marvin Agustin, Diether Ocampo and Mylene Dizon (from the youth-oriented show GIMIK) and Rica Peralejo. Within a year, these young talents had become some of the most bankable stars in showbiz, thanks in large part to their exposure on ASAP.
The first ASAP episode was broadcast in February 1995, from the Delta Theatre, which served as an ABS-CBN studio until 1998.
