ABS-CBN's offerings for the Year of the Ox are far from over.

Deo Endrinal, ABS-CBN's business unit head, formally unveiled its latest entertainment programs and the new timeslot of a Kapamilya morning show beginning February.

"We have a new morning show starting February 16 and it's called ‘Ruffa & Ai’ hosted by [Miss World 1993 Second Princess] Ms. Ruffa Gutierrez and, of course, the Comedy Concert Queen and Box Office Queen Ms. Ai-Ai delas Alas,”  Endrinal said.

The Kapamilya executive said Boy Abunda and Kris Aquino's morning show, "Boy & Kris," will have a new timeslot and format also beginning February 16.

"The king and queen of talk shows will now be part of primetime bida,” he said.

The morning show “Boy & Kris” will be followed by "SNN: Showbiz News Ngayon," a daily entertainment magazine show, according to Endrinal.

He said the two back-to-back programs will be aired from Mondays to Fridays.

Taking the timeslot of “Boy & Kris,” “Ruffa & Ai” will air before “Pilipinas: Game KNB?”

ABS-CBN is also set to air a new television horror series.  Diamond Star Maricel Soriano is making a television comeback in "Florinda," the third installment from the "Susan Roces Cinema Collections."

"Florinda will run daily for three weeks starting February 23 as our very special tribute to Ms. Maricel Soriano for her birthday," Endrinal said.

Soriano will celebrate her 43rd birthday on February 25.

ABS-CBN will also premiere a latest TV drama series, "May Bukas Pa," which aims to give hope and inspiration amid the current crisis.

May Bukas Pa will start airing on February 2 right after “TV Patrol World.” May Bukas Pa is not replacing any of the four existing shows on primetime, Endrinal said.
