In the 18-49 demo, Telemundo also outperformed the competition with 344,000 average viewers.

Similar to March, the viewership was fueled by the reality series La Casa de los Famosos, which was once again the top Spanish-language primetime show in April with 1.4M average viewers tuning in during its weekday time slot. It’s Sunday time slot raked in an average of 1.3M total viewers.

The scripted drama El Señor de Los Cielos also helped boost Telemundo’s audience. According to Nielsen, the series ranked first in its 10 p.m. time slot on Spanish-language TV. Among the 18-49 demo, about 356,000 viewers tuned in to each episode.
