In other television news, we take a look at the long-running Spanish language variety show Sabado Gigante, which, after more than 50 years, will go off the air in September. Next, Madeleine interviews an author who's written a fascinating and exhaustive history of the homegrown violent revolutionary groups of the 1970s.
