The popular telenovela “Por ella soy Eva”, starring Jaime Camil and Lucero, aired its final episode on March 8 reaching 8.8 million viewers. It made Univision the #1 broadcast network of the night besting ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC. It is really amazing to think how strong Univision has become as a network; it is definitely a force to be reckoned with and officially one of the major networks in the US. Its programming includes many telenovelas and variety shows, some I really enjoy and others…not so much!
I tried watching “Por ella soy Eva” a few times, mainly because of Lucero, but it didn’t really grab my attention. It had a classic plot with a twist that I don’t want to spoil, but it wasn’t my favorite. Still the quality of the production was superb and was probably quite expensive to make. I love that telenovelas are evolving into high budget projects with more complex storylines.
Some fun facts about the episode: The finale ranks among the Top 10 primetime telenovela finales of all-time on Univision (since 1992) with Adults 18-49. It is the ninth consecutive Friday night that Univision ranks as the No. 1 broadcast network among Adults 18-49 and Adults 18-34.
