NBC's Telemundo tie-in Sunday night worked like a champ: According to the Nielsen Media Group, "more Hispanic households tuned in to watch the Dallas Cowboys' NFL victory Sunday night than any other English-language program" for the week of September 17-23. In third place was the Dane Cook of TV shows, Fox's Family Guy, and I really had no idea that show was considered "English-language." Still, ain't none of 'em got a thing on Destilando Amor. Now's a good time to look at the Madden 08-en-Espanol spot again, regardless. --Robert Wilonsky
