Sábado Gigante is Ending and We’re Worried for Our Moms
Goodbye, Don Francisco. After more than five decades on the air, Sábado Gigante is ending its run. No more Chacal, no more La Cuatro and no more “¡Fuera! ¡Fuera! ¡Fuera!” What will Latina moms do with their Saturday nights? Twitter is worried:

Damn.. They're pulling the plug on Sábado Gigante after 53 years. Gotta call my Mom and my Tias to make sure they're taking it well. ?

Better not tell my mother the Sabado Gigante news until I think she's ready. Like telling a kid there won't be Christmas anymore.

#SabadoGigante is ending and my Hispanic mother might have a fucking heart attack because of it.

Although it may be tough to get over the sadness that comes with Sábado Gigante‘s end, Latina moms will get their chance to pay their respects in September, when Don Francisco says his final goodbye.
