TV Series
    (May 17, 1989-November 1, 2010)
    Filmed in Miami
    Spanish-language daytime talk show
    Aired on Univision
    Hosted and produced by Cristina Saralegui
    Also called 'The Cristina Show'
    Drew an estimated 100 million viewers worldwide
    The audience catch phrase was to croon 'Cristinaaa!!'
    An English version of the show failed to gain a following and tanked quickly.
    The show tackled provocative topics that often offended the sensibilities of conservative Latino audiences.
    It is widely remembered only as Spanish media's answer to the Oprah Winfrey Show.
    It was a platform for its host to openly discuss her menopause symptoms and cosmetic surgery.
    Its impromptu cancellation prompted a public feud between the host and Univision executives, dooming any chances for the show to return in a different format.
    The show has won ten Emmy awards.
    The host conducted marriage ceremonies for gay couples on the show.
    It helped to raise AIDS awareness and prevention within the Hispanic community.
    Initial reactions from some viewers accused Saralegui of being 'too white' to represent Hispanics.
    She responded graciously, simply saying that Latinas are beautiful 'in every shade' of colored skin.
    It premiered the star-studded 'Somos El Mundo' charity single to raise funds for the Haiti Earthquake relief effort to great success.
    Cristina closed every show with 'Pa'lante, pa'lante, pa'tras ni pa' coger impulso!' ('Forward, forward; don't step back, not even to gain momentum'), along with a double thumbs up salute.
