Largest audience for Premio Lo Nuestro
Latinos and Latin Americans make up one of the largest populations in the U.S. Therefore, it is no surprise that Premio Lo Nuestro drew its largest audience ever last night (February 22, 2007) according to MediaWeek. This Univision televised awards show, which recognizes the elites of Latino music, has drawn 6.3 million viewers across the nation, and this statistic has broken several records among the U.S. awards shows. For example, in Los Angeles, Premio Lo Nuestro has outrated Grey’s Anatomy 7.9 to 6.9 and American Idol 7.6 to 5.2. More impressively, more teens and adults have viewed this show than the the 2006 Academy Awards, the Emmy Awards and the VMAs (Video Music Awards), and the 2007 Golden Globes combined.
