Here is your weekly open thread and blog update. Comments and questions are welcome and nothing is off-topic.
What happened last week
Reliable reporting on upcoming telenovelas has been difficult to find, but Univision did announce the replacement for Muchacha Italiana Viene a Casarse, Un Camino Hacia el Destino. You can find all our most up-to-date information about upcoming telenovelas and series on our Proximas/Upcoming page, which is also linked to the Calendario/Calendar and posted on the sidebar under “PAGES.”
We shared a song to get you going on Monday morning.
In case you missed it on the sidebar…
Joy of Classic Novelas has started the next classic novela re-watch: La Hija del Mariachi. They’re still in the single-digit episodes, so you’ve got plenty of time to catch up!
NovelaLounge has promo videos for Sueño de Amor (definitely following Antes Muerta Que Lichita on Canal de las Estrellas on February 22, and possibly also following AMQL on Univision).
Mujer con Voz Poetry is releasing a book soon.
What’s in store for this week
The Pope is in Mexico until Wednesday, which is affecting the programming schedule on nearly every channel, mostly during the day. We’ve done our best to document the pre-emptions on the Horario/Schedule but keep an eye on your local listings, DVR settings, and cries of alarm from your fellow telenovela fans.
“Premio Lo Nuestro 2016” airs on Thursday evening, pre-empting the usual evening schedule on Thursday night.
Known technical issues
We have updates scheduled to go in tonight (Saturday). As soon as that’s done, I’ll let you know what to watch out for.
Last week’s poll results
A chart is completely unnecessary this week as we all seem to be in agreement that Lucita’s kids (La Vecina) are awful!
This week’s poll about Eugenio Siller is on the ¿Quién es Quién? sidebar (look for any ¿Quién es Quién? post, or click on the category “¿Quién es Quién?” under “EXPLORE CATEGORIES” on the main sidebar).
