After 53-year run, Univision to end 'Sabado Gigante'

(Reuters) - Univision Network will have a giant hole in its Saturday night line-up - "Sabado Gigante," its top-rated variety show, will be going off the air after a record-breaking 53 years, the broadcaster said on Friday.

Created and hosted by Chile-born Don Francisco since 1962, "Sabado Gigante," or "Giant Saturday," is the No. 1 rated show on Saturday night among U.S. Hispanics and is the longest running TV variety show in the world, according to Guinness World Records.
