LOS ANGELES, CA–(Marketwire – Mar 28, 2012) – New figures reveal that over 30 million TV viewers are now watching ¡Q’VIVA! THE CHOSEN across the Americas, making it one of the biggest new international TV shows of 2012. Created by Simon Fuller’s XIX Entertainment, Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony, and Jamie King, in collaboration with BlackBerry®, ¡Q’VIVA! THE CHOSEN is a groundbreaking docu-journey celebrating Latin culture, music and performance arts.
The multilingual show, which is produced in English, Spanish and Portuguese, has captured the region’s attention since its premiere earlier this year. Spanish speaking fans were the first to fall in love with the show as ¡Q’VIVA! THE CHOSEN became #1 and #2 in its timeslot across all networks in Puerto Rico, Peru, Uruguay, the Dominican Republic, Colombia and Brazil, while delivering audience share of 35% in Uruguay, 33% in Columbia and 22% in Ecuador.
In Puerto Rico, ¡Q’VIVA! THE CHOSEN increased Saturday night viewership by a spectacular 60% and in Uruguay by 50% when it opened last month. Solid debuts in Venezuela, Chile, Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras and other Latin American countries have added further viewers in the past few weeks. The show will also continue to expand internationally as production partner Endemol begins to roll it out globally and more countries sign up to broadcast the series.
During the course of the series, which is also sponsored by American Airlines and Kohl’s, Jennifer, Marc and Jamie travel throughout the region and witness the most amazing singers, dancers, musicians, and mesmerizing performers that they have found through local grassroots efforts, YouTube (youtube.com/qviva), and Facebook (facebook.com/qvivathechosen).
