WXTV’s Spanish-lingo news sweeps July

English-language defeat a Gotham first

WXTV, the Univision-owned station in New York, cleaned up during July sweeps — with high ratings for its 6 p.m. newscast “Noticias 41,” repping the first time in Gotham-area viewing history that a Spanish-lingo weekday news program beat an English-language one for an entire sweeps period.

According to Nielsen Station Index ratings released Thursday, “Noticias 41” beat competitor CBS-TV’s Channel 2’s “News 2” for the July 6-Aug. 2 stretch with a 2.9 NSI rating and 6 share in the 6-6:30 p.m. weekday slot. “News 2” achieved a 2.7/6 rating, its lowest to date.

With a 1.6/4 NSI rating — sign-on to sign-off — WXTV tied its own sweeps-ratings record set when broadcasting World Cup Soccer in 1998.

Novelas score

Novelas “Por tu Amor” and “Rosalinda” each gave WXTV fourth place in their respective time periods, the former with a 4.2/8 in primetime access in the 7-8 p.m. slot and the latter with 4.5/7 in the 8-9 p.m. weekday primetime hour.

Between 7 and 8 p.m. the station beat out three of New York’s six English-language VHF Network stations, including those of Fox, CBS, and UPN.

Each New York NSI rating point equals 68,749.9 television households.
