MIAMI, FL, MARCH 31, 2011 – “Teresa,” the novela that made Salma Hayek an international star, premiered on Univision last night with ratings that can only be seen as good news for the star of this iteration, Angelique Boyer. With 4.9 million viewers tuning in at 9pm ET/PT, the one-hour premiere led the network to a third-place finish in the time period among Adults 18-49 (2.7 million viewers) – besting ABC and NBC – and a second-place ranking among Adults 18-34 (1.5 million) and Persons 12-34 (1.9 million) – behind only FOX.
On Wednesday night, “Teresa” was the second most-watched program on all of television, behind only FOX’s “American Idol,” among Adults 18-34 and Persons 12-34, and finished within the top 10 programs in Adults 18-49.
Powered by “Teresa,” which airs between hit novelas “Eva Luna” and “Triunfo del Amor” (Triumph of Love), Univision was the #2 Network for the entire night among Adults 18-34, Men 18-34, Women 18-34 and Persons 12-34; #3 among Adults 18-49, Men 18-49 and Women 18-49 , beating ABC and NBC; and #4 among Teens 12-17 and Total Viewers 2+.
“Teresa” is a scintillating story of a seductive woman named Teresa (Boyer) who is driven by her ambition and greed, and would rather lie and cheat her way out of poverty and into riches than achieve anything through hard work and honesty. Among the star-studded cast are Aarón Díaz, Sebastián Rulli, Ana Brenda Contreras, Cynthia Klitbo, Silvia Mariscal, Juan Carlos Colombo and Margarita Magaña.
