Martin Late at Night (stylized as Martin Late @ Night) was a musical nightly talk show hosted by Martin Nievera. It is a spin-off of the defunct show Martin Late at Nite which aired from 1998 to 2003.
In 2011, the possibility of the show was first hinted during Nievera's contract signing for ABS-CBN. One of his reasons for signing the contract was the show. He told in an interview with the Philippine Entertainment Portal, "When I finally got my contract from ABS-CBN, I finally have a contract and they've included one show[...] I only signed it when they said it's a talk show."
On February 19, 2013, Nievera officially confirmed the show in his personal Twitter account. A teaser for the show was released on February 23, 2013 featuring Nievera dubbed as the "Big Mouth".
Since its first airing, the show was not well received and met low television ratings. From April 25–27, 2013, Nievera posted through his Twitter account a series of statements showing his grievance over the ABS-CBN Network executives for their "lack of support [on the show]." He said "You [ABS-CBN executives] can't blame me if I'm not rating like the prime-time shows if you don't support me like you support them. No band, no live audience? How?" He continued "I know I am no 'teleserye' or noontime show. But if I had [that much] support I would last longer. [I] can't stay in the fight alone. So sad." On May 1, the host expressed his apologies to the network executives and told he is "not upset."
In early May 2013, ABS-CBN confirmed the show's cancellation effective on May 31, 2013.
The final episode's guests was the Popstar Princess and certified Box Office Queen Sarah Geronimo with the Prince of Pop Erik Santos.
