What’s happening this week

We’re done with Confederations Cup coverage interrupting the regular flow of novelas after this weekend…but then there’s MLS and CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Today, Saturday, there’s a marathon of Los Mosqueteros on UniMás starting at 7pm/6c and pushing Blue Demon to 11pm/10c.

Also Saturday, there are two specials on Telemundo–Mariposa de Barrio at 4pm/3c followed by El Señor de los Cielos at 5pm/4c.

Tuesday there’s a movie marathon on UniMás during the day, but the evening shows air as usual.

Thursday night, Premios Juventud airs on Univision, so look for pre-emptions and re-scheduling starting during the day and going into Friday.

Friday night, boxing on Telemundo messes with the evening schedule.

Also Friday night, fútbol pre-empts all the evening shows on UniMás.

The episodes of Cuentos de Hadas for this week on Galavisión are:

7/3 La Bella Durmiente
7/4 Capurecita Roja
7/5 El Pescador y Su Esposa
7/6 El Sastrecillo Valiente
7/7 La Campesina Prudente

Next week: fútbol, fútbol, fútbol on UniMás.

Kat is 5ftLatina. She is really 5' tall (and probably shrinking) and Latina. She is not actually a cactus, but she is both prickly and cute. Mr. 5ft is actually married to Kat, but is not 5' tall or Latina. He is also not a form of plant life.

I think I’m done with Estela. I did some soul searching this weekend and it just doesn’t make me happy to watch it. Not like “Oh this is heavy and dark but I still like it” but “Wow I want back that time I spent watching.” There are too many other good shows.

I haven’t canceled the series recording yet. I might…. MIGHT see what tonight brings, but there are other shows I get a lot more joy from.

Sara, did you happen to notice if Monday’s Estela was a repeat of Friday’s episode? I’m wondering if it was just my local Uni station or if it happened everywhere.

I’ve already deleted my recording without even watching 🙁

I wonder if anyone else knows.

Thanks, Kat! I thought at first I was imagining things. 🙂

That’s odd. I wonder if they just screwed up or if they are trying to get the last episode to fall on a certain day?

Ok. You said nothing is off topic…

Has Luis Gatica hotter as he’s gotten older? Discuss.

I saw a quick, general promo on Univision and it looks like for now they plan to bring the new Osorio production soon.

That could change though.
