The Univision Network announced today that it will close the July 2012 sweep period as the No. 1 network among Adults 18-34 and the No. 2 network, ahead of ABC, CBS, NBC and the CW, among Adults 18-49 in primetime. Univision also finished as the No. 1 network on Friday nights for the eighth consecutive July sweep among Adults 18-34 and for the fifth consecutive July sweep among Adults 18-49.
With an average audience of 3.5 million Total Viewers 2+, 1.7 million Adults 18-49 and 922,000 Adults 18-34 in primetime, Univision has out-delivered at least one or more of the English-language broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC and the CW) on every night of the July 2012 sweep thus far among both Adults 18-34 and Adults 18-49.
Whereas ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC and the CW, on average, are reporting audience declines of -10%, Univision is generating slight audience gains (+1%) among Adults 18-34 in comparison to the same nights during last year’s July sweep period.
