Univision set to become top U.S. broadcast network
Reuters ^ | Oct 26. 2010 | Steve McClellan

NEW YORK (Adweek) – With double-digit ratings growth this season, Spanish-language broadcaster Univision is off to a better start than any of the major English-language networks, and the future is promising as well.

The new census is expected to show a nearly 45% increase in the number of Hispanic Americans since 2000, to a total of 50 million. This couples with continuing audience erosion at the major networks and Univision's recent deal with Mexican programer Grupo Televisa, which locks up the source of much the network's popular programing for at least another decade.

Another shining victory for multi-culturalism...we're going to have one fifth of Mexico's population living in the United States and the largest network is going to be a spanish speaking one that caters to the third world takeover. You can be sure that neither of the two political parties will take any strong measures against illegal immigration.

This isn’t multicultural programming. They don’t even offer English subtitles or Secondary Audio Programming.

Ever watch? MORE CLEAVAGE ALL THE TIME. MORE BOTTOMS ALL THE TIME.

This is old fashioned "women are for men" programming.

And early morning? Before papa goes to work ~ WOW!!!

I've never seen any Spanish used in the entertainment programs that is more complex than what you can handle with highschool Spanish.

Somebody has made a erroneous judgment that only Spanish speaking peoples watch this ~

My Cuban-born wife watches the Novelas, I must admit I do enjoy sitting down and watching Sabado Gigante, Don Francisco is a very interesting person with an interesting background, his parents were German Jews who fled the Nazis for Chile in the 1930s.

Heh - if NBC, ABC & CBS had as much boobage, sprayed-on jeans and gargantuan cleavage spilling over shirts as Univision does, their ratings would be going up too.

Will we become a bi-lingual country or simply transform into a latin one.That’s what happens when you don’t have an official language. These foreign language networks perpetuate non-assimilation and promote the colonization of foreign cultures. It is a combination both of the modern technologies and the fact that travel has become cheaper and distances are much closer time wise than in the day of steamer ships.

"Somebody has made a erroneous judgment that only Spanish speaking peoples watch this ~ "

The English speaking soft porn fan portion of their audience is going to be very low. This proves all that "poor Illegals leaving because of SB1070" is BS.

I don’t think anybody actually watches Univision with the sound on. They seem to think their mission is to employ every woman with D cups in Mexico. They have randomly placed wiggling women in plunging necklines all the time. This is probably the real key to the channel’s success, if you’re sitting in front of the TV one day thinking “I haven’t seen much cleavage lately” find Univision on your dial, probably half their audience can’t speak enough Spanish to handle a Mexican restaurant.

Last year one of the wife’s relatives was in the hospital and the waiting room TV was on Univision. I explained to her their “all boobs all the time” business plan, at the time they were running some talk, your basic Regis and Kelly ripoff, of course the Kelly clone had double Ds and her blouse almost showed her navel. The funny part was for the bumpers in and out of commercial breaks they cut over to 3 women wearing really small dresses “dancing”. Then the next show was womens bikini skiing. The wife was laughing pretty good.

Maybe the “big 4” networks should learn the lesson, get the boobs out of the board room and onto the screen.

I don’t understand the complaints on this thread. Univision becoming the top U.S. broadcast network is probably more a reflection of the demise of ABC, CBS and NBC than the hegemony of multiculturalism.

“Official language” has no meaning. If the “official language” was English there would still be non-English TV and radio and newspapers. And if you think the only foreign language stuff out there is Spanish I suggest you find your nearest Chinatown, Greektown or Little Italy. We used to have a middle Euoropean restaurant in Tucson, in their lobby they had newspapers in half a dozen different languages, local rags as far as I could tell (looking at the papers in languages I could muster); the restaurant owners retired but I bet those papers still exist.

But you know how that crowd is. Everything that includes any Spanish is evil. All the people complaining here are the same folks that if they see a Spanish language billboard will boycott that company... or at least will SAY they will on our convenient anonymous message board where nobody can prove otherwise.

“I must admit I do enjoy sitting down and watching Sabado Gigante, Don Francisco”

Me, too. Don Francisco is also one of my favorite TV personalities. He can be a clown when called for; but
also full of gravitas (as when he interviews US presidential candidates).

And, the news on Spanish TV shows you a lot more of what is taking place in the world than our idiot brain-dead networks (even if I mostly only look at the pictures).

With double-digit ratings growth this season

Just like their population.

No doubt they went down the street to Grauman's Chinese theatre and had her cement her feet in place for the filming.

That would be for the LA programming portion.

This started out as a San Antonio TX operation. I've seen programming originating from every part of the US and Latin America over the years.

They claim number one broadcast status in many categories. Cleavage is certainly El Numero Uno.

I never really learned to write Spanish, or speak it, but I can listen to it and read it, and for the tough stuff there's the internet with very good on-line computer translation services.

When a network successfully targets an audience, it is rewarded with high ratings. Government should not be involved in restricting or discouraging a network simply because its programming is in Spanish. Besides, there are myriads of English speaking channels, while the number of Spanish speaking channels is still quite limited. In addition, Univision is seen throughout Latin America and much of its programming is produced in South America.
