RamosUnivision/Fusion’s Jorge Ramos is having quite a week. First, he traveled to Nashville to interview Pres. Barack Obama. Then, back to Miami to interview former Pres. Bill Clinton.

Obama Immigration Remarks Draw 6.8M on Spanish-Language TV

RamosImmigrationPres. Obama’s immigration remarks drew 6.85 million viewers on two Spanish-language U.S. TV networks last night, according to Nielsen overnight time-period data.

With 5.055 million viewers, Univision saw a +49% increase in viewership from Wednesday’s 8pm half hour, while NBCU-owned Telemundo’s 1.8 million viewers was a jump of +38% from the night earlier.

With a 2.1 rating and a 9 share in the A18-34 demo, Unvision was second only to CBS’s “The Big Bang Theory” in the half hour. It was fourth in total viewers, behind CBS, ABC and NBC.

The broadcast networks chose not to carry network-wide special reports at 8pmET, but that didn’t stop many local stations in big markets from producing their own specials. That alone will dent the national ratings, especially for NBC and ABC. (Final numbers will be released Tuesday.) FOX, too, will see an effect as many stations in big markets carried a Shepard Smith-anchored report.

Another interesting note for Unvision, following the president’s remarks, anchor Jorge Ramos wrapped up the news at 8:18pm. At that point the network moved on to the Latin Grammy Awards broadcast. The 8:30pm half hour actually lost viewers: from an average of 5.055 million to an average of 4.799 million. The younger demos (18-49 and 18-34) also each dropped one tenth of a ratings point from 8 to 8:30pm. Some of those Univision viewers may have switched to Telemundo which produced a one-hour special averaging 1.98 million viewers.

  • 8-8:30pm | Program: Viewers (Millions) / A18-49 / A18-34

The Big Bang Theory (CBS)….14.647 / 4.0 / 2.6
Informe Especial (Univision)……5.055 / 2.2 / 2.1

Sunday Show Ratings: September 28

sunday shows_304Update 10/13/14: the numbers have been updated following a Nielsen ratings data glitch. With restated data, “Face the Nation” was number one for Sept. 28

Previous story: “This Week” was the top Sunday program in viewers and the A25-54 demo this week in a reduced field due to “Meet the Press” being pre-empted for the Ryder Cup Golf Tournament. The ABC broadcast topped second place “Face the Nation” by +65,000 and by +70,000 demo viewers. ABC’s victory in viewers for the first telecast of the season was its first in 12 years.

Compared to the same week last year, “This Week” is up +24% in viewers and up +28% in the demo. “Face” was up +10% in viewers and flat in the demo. “Fox News Sunday” saw the most viewer growth, up +70% in viewers and up +21% in the demo. Univision’s “Al Punto” was down -9% in viewers and down -13% in the demo.

Cable rebroadcasts of “Fox News Sunday” averaged a combined 1,677,000 total viewers and 358,000 A25-54 viewers.

“Face the Nation” is based on the first half-hour only, as the full contiguous hour aired in just 67% of the country.
