Univision leads Wednesday TV ratings

Spanish language net continues its hot streak

With English-language networks barely scraping by Wednesday night, Univision’s popular drama “Soy Tu Duena” was best. In fact, the network was No. 1 in the 18-49 demo, landing three shows in the top 10.

Univision’s 9 p.m. powerhouse “Soy Tu Duena” (2.3 rating/7 share in the demo, 5.6 million viewers overall) has been hot this week, taking advantage of the English broadcasters weak competition and viewers who are shopping and traveling, and not watching a lot of television. “Eva Luna” (1.3/4, 3.5m) and “Don Francisco Presenta” (1.2/4, 3.1m) filled the 8 and 10 o’clock timeslots, respectively, for Univision.

Fox came in second with a new episode of “Human Target” (1.4 rating/5 share, 5.7 million viewers overall) followed by night three of “Million Dollar Money Drop” (1.6/5, 4.7m). “Money Drop,” which began Monday and will end tonight, fell 20% from Wednesday’s episode and lost about 800,000 viewers.

ABC and NBC tied for third. A repeat of Alphabet comedy “The Middle” (1.5/5) was the most-watched laffer Wednesday with 6.1 million viewers tuning in. An hour later, “Modern Family” (2.0/6) drew 5.9 million viewers. Network’s 90-minute repeat special “CMA Country Christmas” (1.1/3, 4.2m) failed to generate much enthusiasm.

NBC offered an original episode of “Undercovers” (1.1/3, 4.2m) at 8 p.m. as the Peacock burns off the canceled drama. Network repeated episodes of “Law & Order: SVU” and the 10 p.m. telecast (1.7/5, 6.5m) was good enough to win the hour.

CBS special “A Home for the Holidays” (0.7/2, 3.9m) failed to resonate at 8 o’clock, while a repeat of “Criminal Minds” (1.5/4) was the evening’s most-watched program. Just under 7 million viewers tuned in for the procedural.

A pair of weak “Hellcats” repeats aired on the CW.

Preliminary 18-49 averages for the night: Univision, 1.6/5; Fox, 1.5/5; NBC, 1.3/4; ABC, 1.3/4; CBS, 1.1/3; CW, 0.6/2.

In total viewers: CBS, 5.4 million; Fox, 5.2 million; NBC, 5.2 million; ABC, 4.9 million; Univision, 4.1 million.
