Univision Tops NBC in Ratings
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:
- There are a TON of Hispanics living in the United States (legally and illegally)
- Hispanics are not assimilating and prefer to view television programs in Spanish rather than English (if they speak any English at all)
- NBC’s prime time lineup sucks as much as Brian Williams and Davis Gregory
- 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!
