It was also the No. 1 show among women 18-49 on 28 October, with 173,000 viewers. The show relies on personal interviews and video clips to examine what happens inside the bodies of people with strange and mysterious afflictions.

The Enigma block was hosted by Mexican actor Luis Felipe Tovar. Also included in the Enigma Week was Prohibido (Forbidden), a new series offering a glimpse into the world of subcultures and individuals who dare to defy social norms, which was No. 2 on Thursday, 31 October.

Outside the Enigma programming, the series Archivo de lo Inexplicable (Unexplained Files), which investigates inexplicable occurrences that have confounded scientists and inspired legends, also positioned the network as the leading channel during primetime on 3 November among all Hispanic pay-TV networks, with a total of 140,000 viewers, P18-49.
