Telemundo is continuing its local ratings streak: during August, Telemundo Station Group's late evening news and two of Telemundo Media's original productions (Marido en Alquiler and Santa Diabla) delivered strong performances among adults 18-49 in key markets, according to Nielsen data.

Telemundo Miami's Noticiero Telemundo 51 at 11pm continues to be the most watched local newscast across all stations in the market, while Telemundo Houston's Noticiero Telemundo Houston at 10pm was the fastest-growing local newscast for its fifth consecutive month.
In addition, Telemundo's newly premiered telenovelas are the No 1 overall programmes in their time periods among adults 18-49 in the Miami market.
