Over the past year, Telemundo has left competitors in the dust when it comes to ratings.

Telemundo, a major U.S. and world Spanish-language network, is growing in viewership. In fact, it is the only Spanish-language network with a rise among key demographics over the past year.

The network catering to Spanish-speaking groups announced on Nov. 29 via press release that it is the only network of its kind to exhibit any kind of growth among adults 18-49, adults 18-34, and total viewers in general.

Since last year, the network’s audience increased by 8 percent. Telemundo was also the fastest growing Spanish-language network over the past month, by going up up +35 percent compared to increases of +7 percent for Univision and +15 percent for Telefutura.

This puts Telemundo ahead of formerly close competitor, Telefutura, with a +44 percent lead (Univision still ranks No. 1).

Telemundo is home to a variety of news/sports shows, sitcoms, and telenovelas. Some popular shows include Caso Cerrado, Ritmo Deportivo, and Aurora.
