NBC Universo has acquired U.S. television rights to The Walking Dead from AMC. “Adding The Walking Dead to our primetime programming lineup is a clear demonstration of our commitment to bringing the most provocative and best-quality entertainment to U.S. Hispanics in Spanish,” said Ruben Mendiola, President, NBC Universo. Subscribers of NBC Universo will also be able to view episodes of  the series on Video on Demand, as well as on nbcuniverso.com and the NBC UNIVERSO Now app.

Advertising Scorecard: Digital is driving ad dollars so far this season, reports SMI, with a 29 percent lift in September versus last year. TV spend, on the other hand, dipped 4 percent year-over-year."Ratings for the new season haven’t set the world on fire so far and we are seeing the impact of this in our September numbers released this week,"James Fennessy, SMI’s chief commercial officer, tells Cynopsis."Results for the broadcast year decline are very much in line with how we have seen spend shaking out over the period. We knew the ’14/’15 television upfront was weak and we saw evidence of this all year in our booking data from the agencies.It was hoped that scatter advertising would make up for this softness but the networks haven’t delivered the audiences they had hoped so it’s been difficult to demand pricing that would close the gap caused by the weak upfront." Bright spot? "Everyone is hopeful that new programming will bring in strong audiences in the coming months and revenue will strengthen in line with this," says Fennessy. "We see digital continue to take dollars from traditional sources but also see video increasingly capturing these dollars, which is great news for the creators of premium content."

Calling it "TV advertising redefined," Hulu took its programmatic offering live yesterday. In the toolbox: data management platform Oracle, inventory management platform Yieldex and video ad exchange LiveRail. "The marketplace has shown that data is overwhelmingly the new currency," said Peter Naylor, SVP of advertising. "Hulu is a the forefront of defining programmatic for the digital video ecosystem and will increase efficiency and ROI for marketers."

Exclusive: Azteca America delivered its highest rated soccer match of the season among A18-49 on Friday, with Tijuana vs. America, averaging 390,000 in the demo as well as 643,000 total viewers, according to Nielsen.

48 HOURS: “Vengeance in Vegas” was Saturday’s top non-sports program with viewers, according to Nielsen Live+SD ratings for October 17. The broadcast delivered 4.76 million viewers (up +2 percent from the same night last year) and a 1.1/03 with A 25-54.

ABC was the most-watched network on Monday (10.5 million), marking season highs in total viewers and A18-49 (1.6/5-tie). Dancing With the Stars beat NBC‘s The Voice for the first time this season in total viewers (+11 percent – 12.3 million vs. 11.1 million), but the singing competition led in the demo.

Dr. Phil (3.0 Live+SD national Nielsen rating, down 3 percent from the week before) easily topped talkers all of its four weeks this season. The show (1.6 demo rating) was also far ahead of the chat pack among W25-54. Live with Kelly & Michael (2.6, down 4 percent) continued to trounce all others. The only top tier show in the category to gain ground: Wendy Williams (1.5, up 7 percent).

Judge Judy (6.8, steady) has been the dominant strip for 994 consecutive weeks and the  #1 syndicated strip overall for 16 straight weeks.
