My experience on Sabado Gigante prompted me to do this thesis about Spanish television. It will demonstrate that language is not the only difference between American and Spanish TV. I will explain each market's style of humor, wardrobe and organization. The show's budget and longevity will also factor into this comparison. There are many challenges an entertainer faces to fit into both markets.
