After 47-years on-air, 'En Familia Con Chabelo' will go dark on Sunday, December 20. Xavier López "Chabelo" has hosted this children's show for the Televisa network since January 6, 1968, and with 2463 episodes produced, it will go off the air as "part of a programming adjustment process." With the show's cancellation, it is the longest running children's show on television. "Televisa expresses Xavier López "Chabelo" its most ample recognition for his compromise and professionalism that has always distinguished his work," the statement reads. "His talent and dedication, has won him a privileged place in the history of television."

Following the last episode set to air on Sunday, December 20, Televisa will produce a special in homage to "Chabelo's" artistic trajectory that will air the first months of next year. Televisa leaves the door open to continue working with Xavier López Rodríguez on the realization of new projects and will continue their relationship of friendship and trust. It surely is the end of an era as kids woke up weekend mornings to this fun game show that got them excited and brought their energy levels up. News of the cancellation comes as Televisa also announced that Laura Bozzo's talk show would be canceled as well, as the Peruvian host restructures the program. Are you sad that Chabelo is ending?
