According to Nielsen, the U.S. Hispanic Latina oriented network had growth of 83% in its viewership among its target audience of women 18-49 during primetime versus last year and achieved its highest second quarter on record[1].

Discovery Familia’s ratings growth during 2Q2014 among Hispanic Women was driven by Mondays and Thursdays nights top series addressing broader aspects of Hispanic women’s lives, ranging from sensitive health issues with shows such as Emergencias bizarras (Bizarre ER) to home topics with series such Vívala o véndala (Love it or List it) and fashion with leading series Desafio fashionista (Ultimate shopper).

In addition, Discovery en Español continues to grow, this quarter 2% versus same period last year with ratings driven by its Monday’s nights Lunes de Motores (Motor Mondays) with shows such as El dúo mecánico (Fast N’ Loud), Carreras prohibidas (Street Outlaws) and Overhaulin.
