An average of 1,035,000 total viewers (aged 2 and older) tuned in for its weekday prime time lineup during 2007. Telemundo is the only Spanish-language network that produces most of its telenovelas. Many programs on Telemundo air with closed captions in both Spanish and English.

Selected footage from Telemundo is available to the public through the NBCUniversal Archives.
