The program premiered on August 9, 2015 on the network’s Sunday Grande block and is also aired worldwide via GMA Pinoy TV. It occupied the 12 noon slot, and went back-to-back with another Sunday game show, Wowowin. After gaining top-rating status in only two weeks, its competing show ASAP started to also dish out some comedy sketch segments before eventually abandoning it on November 15, 2015 to give way to its lead-out program Banana Sundae.
When Wowowin moved to a weekday timeslot, Sunday Pinasaya had Dear Uge as its lead-out program and continued airing as a two-hour show. On March 20, 2016, the show was granted a 30-minute extension due to public demand.
On May 15, 2016, the show debuted Star Buzz, a parody of the defunct talk shows, Startalk and rival network ABS-CBN’s The Buzz. The segment quickly won critical acclaim due to the effective impersonation of its cast members, particularly Jose Manalo, who impersonated then-presumptive Presidential winner Rodrigo Duterte.
