The growing strength of Spanish-language TV was demonstrated conclusively last week as Univision became the No. 1 broadcast network among the 18-49 age group. It also ranked No. 1 — for the third week in a row — among viewers 18-36. In a news release it noted that for the entire week, it aired 15 out of the top 25 primetime programs on all of broadcast television among among adults 18-34 and 11 out of the top 25 among adults 18-49. The very top of the ratings lists were still dominated by the traditional networks, with CBS’s Big Brother taking the top two positions, followed by two editions of America’s Got Talent. Among total adults, Wednesday’s edition of America’s Got Talent took first place, while Wednesday’s Big Brother could do no more better than eighth place. Ratings for the evening newscasts remained rather stagnant. NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams remained in the lead with 7.46 million viewers, followed by ABC World News with Diane Sawyer, with 7.02 million. The CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley trailed with 5.95 million. For the week, CBS led among total households with an average 3.7 average and a 7 share. NBC came in second with a 2.9/5. ABC was third with a 2.8/5, while Fox trailed with a 1.4/3. Univision posted a 1.7/3.
