The first logo of the lineup using the Primetime Bida name had the words "Teleserye" and "Primetime" on an orange half-circle and the word "Bida" between the "Primetime".

After this logo was used, teaser-end bumpers of the lineup until 2009 simply use the word "Primetime Bida" in various typefaces depending on the design of the teaser-end bumper. However, it was not until 2007 that the lineup again has a logo. From 2007 to 2009, some teaser-end bumpers used the lineup's logo while some simply use the "Primetime Bida" text in various typefaces.

2007–present

In 2007, the "Primetime Bida" text in gold and in capital letters was used. The "BIDA" text is in Arial Black typeface, which was later used as the typeface of the said word on the 2010 and 2015 versions of the 2008 lineup logo. It was not until February 2020 that the name of programming lineup in all capital letters was again used, but this time it uses the 2015 version of 2008 lineup logo.

Rotis Semi Serif (ABS-CBN text)
Launched:  January 2008

The iconic "prime" in red text, "time" in green, and "BIDA" in blue which are the ABS-CBN's respective colors was introduced on One Gr8 Jan 28 in '08' teaser in January 2008 and has been used since then, making it the longest-lived logo of the lineup to be used. Its launch was coincided with ABS-CBN's 55th anniversary and the premiere of three new drama shows (Kung Fu Kids, Palos, and Lobo) in one night on January 28, 2008.

The 2008 version of the lineup's logo has "prime" in red (in which the dot of the i is replaced by the 2000–2014 ABS-CBN wordmark, making the wordmark's hyphen as the dot), "time" in green and "BIDA" in blue (with the ABS-CBN symbol beside the B). It was used when the main terrestrial ABS-CBN channel is still on-air from 2008 to May 5, 2020. Despite that the network's 2000 logo officially stopped its usage in 2014, this version is still used on some uses, such as on its November 11-15, 2019 teaser-end bumper and at the end of a trailer of Till I Met You. This version was used when the main ABS-CBN terrestrial channel is on-air.

2010–present

Same as before, but the word "BIDA" is wider to fit the word "primetime", the dot of the i in "prime" is added and without the ABS-CBN wordmark and symbol. It can only be seen on billboard ads and print ads of the network's shows, as well as some promos. The logo is similar to the 2007 "Primetime Bida" in gold text, except that the word "Primetime" is in lowercase and "BIDA" has a blue color, and also uses ABS-CBN's RGB colors. It is also used on Kapamilya Channel bumpers and promos after the main terrestrial ABS-CBN channel shuts down on May 5, 2020.

2015–present

Also the same as the 2008 and 2010 versions, but the wording is thicker and without the ABS-CBN wordmark and symbol. This can mainly be used on the network's promo teasers, and on in-program lower third promos. It is also used on Kapamilya Channel bumpers and promos along with the 2010 version after the main terrestrial ABS-CBN channel shuts down on May 5, 2020.

The capitalized version of the 2015 version of 2008 lineup logo was used on teaser-end bumpers from February 3-7, March 2-5 and 16-20, and April 20-24, 2020. This logo again uses the name of programming lineup in all capital letters after the "Primetime Bida" logo in gold text 13 years earlier in 2007.
