Univision Beats All the English-Language Broadcast Nets in Monday Ratings TVbytheNumbers
On a Monday night when the major broadcast networks aired nothing but reruns and settled for subpar viewer totals, Spanish-language broadcaster Univision was able to pull off an outright win for the night in the adults 18-49 demo, TVbytheNumbers.com reports.
Univision, broadcasting an hour of “Eva Luna” and the two-hour finale of “Soy tu Duena,” finished the night with an average rating of 2.0 in 18-49, edging CBS, which had a 1.9. ABC followed with a 1.6 average rating, well ahead of Fox (1.0) and NBC (0.8).
CBS got the win in total viewers with an average of 7.6 million, ahead of ABC (5.5 million), Univision (4.9 million), Fox (3.5 million) and NBC (2.7 million).
CBS aired reruns of its comedy block and “Hawaii Five-0” while ABC televised the movie “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” along with a “Castle” rerun, Fox repeated “House” and “Lie to Me” and last-place NBC ran a full three hours of “Chuck” reruns.
