TV Patrol ABS-CBN Show. It is aired Monday to Friday from 6:30 p.m. to 7:45 p.m., Saturdays from 6:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., and Sundays from 6:15 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. (PST). It can be heard simultaneously on radio through DZMM, its television counterpart DZMM TeleRadyo, and its provincial radio stations based in Cebu and Davao. It is also aired internationally via The Filipino Channel. It has been the longest running Filipino evening primetime newscast after its inception on March 2, 1987.TV Patrol premiered on March 2, 1987 at 6:30 pm. Co-anchoring the newscast were Noli de Castro, a radio announcer for DZMM, Mel Tiangco andRobert Arevalo, both final anchors of Balita Ngayon. Segment anchors included Ernie Baron, who served as the newscast's chief meteorologist and provided viewers trivia pertaining to science and history, and actress-personality Angelique Lazo, who first hosted Star News, an entertainment news segment.
However, Arevalo eventually left the newscast to host the morning show Magandang Umaga. Frankie Evangelista swapped for him in May 1987. Evangelista would later be notable for his TV Patrol discussion segment entitled PULSO: Pangkalahatang Ugnayan Laan Sa Opinyon (PULSE: Overall Correlation Reserved for Opinions).
With the introduction of international broadcasts in 1989 to the Pacific islands of Guam and Saipan, and later with the birth of The Filipino Channel in 1994, TV Patrol became the first Philippine newscast and program to be broadcast overseas. It still does so today, now in an expanded reach through TFC and the live web streaming on its official webpage.
In 1992, Ted Failon temporarily took over Evangelista's chair until TV Patrol underwent changes on its theme and title card the same year. Christine Bersola joined the newscast a year later to host Star News until 1996.
In 1995, Kata Inocencio replaced Mel Tiangco when the latter moved to GMA Network after being suspended from doing a TV commercial. Inocencio continued anchoring Tiangco's Lingkod Bayan, a public service segment of the newscast.
On April 1, 1996, De Castro became the sole anchor of the newscast and the airing time was cut to 30 minutes. In 2000, TV Patrol started its simulcast over AM radio stations DZMM (Manila), DYAB (Cebu), and DXAB (Davao) and began an online presence through the ABS-CBN News website. On March 9, 2001, De Castro left the newscast to run for Senator.
On March 12, 2001, Korina Sanchez, Henry Omaga-Diaz (who became De Castro's relief anchor from 1997-2001), and Aljo Bendijo took over the anchor chair vacated by De Castro. Marc Logan became the news reader of trivial segments and features.
In April 2003, Julius Babao replaced Omaga-Diaz and Bendijo after several changes in the anchor chair. Sanchez was situated at the news studio, while Babao was situated in Studio 7.
TV Patrol still holds the record of having the highest rating newscast when then-anchor Korina Sanchez conducted an exclusive live interview with Kris Aquino regarding the latter's break-up with Joey Marquez. The September 24, 2003 edition, which featured Kris' interview, ate up most of the newscast's airtime, making it extend beyond its 6:00pm-7:00pm timeslot. According to AGB, the edition, the longest in its history back then, garnered a rating of 47.2% in Mega Manila.
Sanchez left TV Patrol on November 11, 2004 to make way for the launch of TV Patrol World.
In time for President-elect Noynoy Aquino's inauguration, on June 30, 2010, TV Patrol World reverted to the original title (TV Patrol) with a new logo, opening billboard, and studio setup that will accommodate augmented reality technology. TV Patrol also introduced their first main website, and also launched its Facebook and Twitter pagers. Ted Failon, Karen Davila, and Julius Babao retained as the anchors for the weeknight editions and Bernadette Sembrano and Alex Santos retained as the anchors for the weekend edition.
TV Patrol covered the Manila hostage crisis on August 23, 2010 with the longest telecast in its history, lasting for about two and a half hours from 6:30pm to 9:00pm. It was anchored by Ted Failon and Ces Orena-Drilon at the ABS-CBN Newscenter, and Julius Babao at the Quirino Grandstand where the hostage taking took place, the edition covered the disorderly and bloody conclusion to the Manila hostage crisis to millions of stupefied viewers worldwide. The August 23 edition drew flak from various concerned viewers making ABS-CBN News revise its Code of Ethics. It eventually got a Finalist nod in the 2011 New York Festivals.
On October the same year, a new program segment, Winner sa Life with Winnie Cordero was launched with reports on lifestyle and tips on proper living.
Reformat and return of former anchors
On November 3, 2010, ABS-CBN announced the return of former Vice President Noli De Castro and Korina Sanchez as weeknight anchors of TV Patrol, they joined Ted Failon on November 8, 2010.  The reformat introduced some minor changes to the graphics, title cards, opening billboard, enhanced set design that reflects the "inverted" color scheme used throughout the news program.
On the same day as the relaunch, Gretchen Fullido replaced Phoemela Baranda as the segment host for Star Patrol, while Bernadette Sembrano was retained as segment host and reporter for Lingkod Kapamilya. A week later after the relaunch, Kim Atienza returned as a weather forecaster after a long absence since August due to heart problems, while Marc Logan was later reinstated as humor and features reporter.
Another new innovation is the Pulso ng Bayan (People's Pulse) segment, aired on selected Fridays beginning on the same month as the relaunch, that aims to reach to the common people about the issues being raised and broadcast on the newscast. Noli De Castro always hosts this weekly segment and goes out into the streets to ask the people about their reactions about the important news of the week.
In February 2011, TV Patrol launched its weekday text poll, the first in Philippine television news history, where texters can choose to agree or disagree at the current issues being broadcast in the program. The text poll happens from Monday to Thursday, but was soon expanded to Fridays. Before the end of the newscast, the three anchors give their opinions about the result of the text poll, similar to the PULSO segment popularized during the time when the late Frankie Evangelista and Mel Tiangco were still part of the anchor team with Noli De Castro. Later, new patriotic segments like Panalo 'To! (It's a Winner!) and Lakas ng Pinoy (Pinoy's Strength) debuted in April of the same year.
