Univision Tops NBC in Ratings

2013 February 22
by bc3b

For the first time ever, Univision (which is owned by NBC) will top NBC in the ratings, pushing the Peacock into fifth place behind CBS, ABC, Fox and Univision (not necessarily in that order).

This could be for a number of reasons:

  1. There are a TON of Hispanics living in the United States (legally and illegally)
  2. Hispanics are not assimilating and prefer to view television programs in Spanish rather than English (if they speak any English at all)
  3. NBC’s prime time lineup sucks as much as Brian Williams and Davis Gregory
  4. Lots of Anglos and blacks enjoy watching television that features well-endowed women with plenty of cleavage

NBC is set to finish fifth for the first time ever in one of television’s all-important sweeps months — bested even by Spanish-language Univisión.

It’s a dramatic drop for the network, which came out on top both in last February’s sweeps and in the last round of ratings wars in November.

But without its fall anchors, “Sunday Night Football” and “The Voice,” NBC was left with new shows that flopped — “1600 Penn,” “Do No Harm” and a much-promoted new season of “Smash” that has so far failed to click with viewers.

“Sweeps,” held in February, May and November, are a major determinant of advertising rates.

If all illegals looked like this, I’d support Rubio. But, they don’t!

    Since the first of the year football and hockey are the only things I have watched on NBC (or any network for that matter). I appears I am not alone. Illegals are one think that is not a problem in the Detroit area. My local cable company carries BET but not Univision. If it did, I just might turn off the volume and enjoy the view.

    The high school I attended had many second generation Poles. There was even a newspaper back then in Detroit called the Polish Daily News. Yet, all my clasmates spoke perfect English.

    With Univision, 20+ Spanish radio stations in areas like Dallas and LA, “dial 2,” and forms printed in Spanish, there is no compelling reason for many Hispanics to learn English. I am sure Seniorita 34DD would look just as sexy giving the weather report in English.

    You get Al Jazeera up that way? Not that there’d be any reason to watch it, but I understand Dearbornistan would be a good market.

    Kind of interesting, now you mention Poles. My bank in Indianapolis area has options for English, Spanish and Polish of all things. The Poles must have invaded without anyone noticing.

    “birds of a feather flock together”

    Actually, multiculturalism and liberalism has a lot to do with it. In 1968 if you were Polish, had lived in the U.S. for more than three years and couldn’t speak English, you were viewed as nothing but a “dumb Pollok.”

    They are a small enough group that in order to get by, they were forced to learn the language. If they were a larger % of the population they would be demanding bi lingual education, their own language on ballots etc etc just like the latinos/asians.

    “They are a small enough group that in order to get by, they were forced to learn the language.”

    You ever been to Detroit (or Buffalo)? 70% of my high school was Polish. They had a completely different mentality. They didn’t want to live as Poles in the United States; they wanted to be Americans. Many Mexicans only want to be Mexicans getting “free stuff” from the U.S. government.

    I would point out that technology has advanced since 1968. In ’68 you did not have —

    * RTR, UNIVISION, Telemundo and some 60 other `C` band sats available via dish to get content.
    * You could not acquire some of that same content and more over the internet.
    * No spanish youtube.

    Fact is, you wanted to eat/work/aspire you HAD to learn the host language. Not anymore.

    Mississippi Guv is making plays to the gun manufacturers to move to his state. Would be funny as hell if MS, TX, AL pulled all the gun business to their states. That would leave The North a gun free zone THEN we have the civil war. Heh.

    The Sierra Club and the U. S. Forest Service were presenting an alternative to the Wyoming ranchers for controlling the coyote population.

    It seems that after years of the ranchers using the tried and true method of shooting or trapping the predators, the Sierra Club had a “more humane” solution to this issue.

    What they were proposing was for the animals to be captured alive. The males would then be castrated and let loose again. This was ACTUALLY proposed by the Sierra Club and by the U. S. Forest Service.

    All of the ranchers thought about this amazing idea for a couple of minutes.

    Finally an old fellow wearing a big cowboy hat in the back of the conference room stood up, tipped his hat back and said …

    “Son, I don’t think you understand our problem here. These coyotes ain’t screwin’ our sheep … they’re eatin’ ’em!”

    The meeting never really got back to order after that.

    mullet – best plan is focus on commodities like beans & bullets (if you can find them). Money is worthless and investments will soon be too.

    The only real assets is those items that you can stand in front of and defend with a rifle.

    I have been converting assets out of my 403B. Hopefully will be fully divested by end of next year. Everybody has different objectives with their money, but mine is land, silver and bullets. I figure when the crumble comes being able to feed and defend are going to be the top survival props. Intend to have a large garden going in a couple of months.

    People are going to found out that their local farmer is going to be more important than their stock broker very very soon.

    “Reports of possible furloughs for all U.S. meat inspectors have meatpackers and processors very, very nervous. This MSN Money article quotes Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack as saying that while temporary layoffs would be “the least desirable option,” the law does not include exceptions for members of the Food Safety and Inspection Service.

    The U.S. government sequester means automatic spending cuts as of March 1, unless Congress finds a way around it. Vilsack has previously mentioned furloughing meat inspectors for up to 15 days.” — from MIC posting

    Another mindless liberal spouting Obama’s talking points. As Limbaugh has been saying, its not even a cut, the government is only cutting $85Bn from a $3780Bn budget. They are still getting an increase from 2012. If the govt can’t spend a year without an increase we are in a world of hurt already. More than most would suggest.

    As it is, were I Purdue I would just pay the meat inspectors myself. Fact get yourself and your competitors together and form a fund and pay the MI’s from the fund. Sure prices will go up a little but the packers are already paying the MI’s thru fees already. Its just that the government would not be involved for the time being.

    Tell ya another secret, based on USDA rules here’s the following —

    * Any poultry farmer who sells less than 20k birds per anum can be exempted from the type of inspection that Purdue goes thru. http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&ved=0CDUQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.fsis.usda.gov%2Foppde%2Frdad%2Ffsisnotices%2Fpoultry_slaughter_exemption_0406.pdf&ei=VjwoUdOPN6fB2QWO_IBo&usg=AFQjCNGOjBadwW3yrOh__AEEZ_8xGfXAXw&sig2=uNs9VdjLoECUj4ZVXotDyg&bvm=bv.42768644,d.b2I
    * Direct eggs sales likewise are exempt from inspection if properly stored, cartoned, labeled ungraded and have the producers address affixed to the carton. Most states have weekly or annual limits. Happily Texas does not. http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=18&ved=0CG0QFjAHOAo&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.dshs.state.tx.us%2FWorkArea%2Flinkit.aspx%3FLinkIdentifier%3Did%26ItemID%3D52082&ei=S0AoUYWYKOa-2AXvmYEg&usg=AFQjCNGP3bDOegLnGLx9QtmloKxABbreRQ&sig2=Hgk-1XxLvkDx-SCEYK7O7w
    * Texas treats rabbit under the same provisions of chicken as well as exemptions. USDA is not involved as rabbit is not consider a farm animal!

    Bottom line, prepare to Eat Mo’ Chickin’. 🙂

    Now I can understand why a meat packer would be nervous. Thin margins, in process inventory has to be harvested or it sits and eats and at the size of their operations, they don’t have a lot of holding capacity. Same with the chicken growers. They MUST be inspected under USDA rules and their product is worthless after about 6 months and at that they can only be sold as stewers at a much discounted price.

    I might be selling duck eggs at a premium here very shortly…. 🙂

    Sorry for the length.

    The obamunists will cut in every area that has the greatest impact
    on the middle class, while ignoring “entitlement” cuts.
