Univision is pulling the plug on Sabado Gigante, the three-hour weekly variety show, after a 53-year run, including 30 on the U.S.'s top-rated Spanish-language network.

Gigante, hosted by Chilean-born Mario Kreutzberger, 74, known on air as Don Francisco, is a hybrid of a game show, a music-performance show and sketch-comedy series, mixed with plenty of product placement. The show's title translates to "Giant Saturday."
