World Cup opener a ratings high for ESPN

The 2014 FIFA World Cup is setting records for ESPN, which scored its highest-rated World Cup opener when 4.435 million viewers tuned into the Brazil-Croatia telecast on Thursday.

It marked the fourth-highest-rated match of all group play games dating back to 1994 for the network, and was ESPN’s best non-U.S. game. Brazil’s 3-1 victory also became the most-watched event on the digital platform WatchESPN, bringing in 1.1 million unique viewers.

Meanwhile, Univision Deportes — the Spanish-language network broadcasting matches in the U.S. — is outdelivering the venerable sports network’s coverage of the World Cup in a number of markets and outpacing its own coverage of the 2010 soccer tournament.

Through the first four matches, Univision Deportes is beating ESPN/ESPN2 by 34 percent among total viewers. The best-performing markets for the network during World Cup broadcasts so far have included Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Houston, Dallas, Chicago, San Francisco, Phoenix, and Sacramento.

Or will it? Sure, true to the original, Walter Blanco — his last name means “white” — is a timid chemistry teacher who transforms into a meth-dealing mastermind after he’s diagnosed with lung cancer. But there are also a few notable differences too, which make Metástasis a blend of high-stakes telenovela drama and American cable TV storytelling. (Never fear: Gilligan consulted on the Colombian remake.) Here are a few of the most striking differences — with the promise of a lot more to come when the show premieres in July in the United States on Univision-owned network UniMás.

NBC ranks fifth during February sweeps -- behind Univision

After a fall filled with positive signs for NBC, the Peacock Network has suffered a major blow.

For the first time ever, Univision has so-far edged NBC out of the top four networks during the highly competitive February sweeps period, a time when ratings are traditionally important to networks as they help determine local ad rates. In the first 20 days of sweeps, NBC averaged a 1.2 rating in the 18-49 demo while Univision has averaged 1.5. CBS (*4.9), Fox (2.0), and ABC (1.7) make up the top three so far. READ FULL STORY
