Launch Pad (November 21, 2020)

Last week

Pajaro Soñador and Dulce Ambicion have posts on the forum, as does Yo soy Betty, la fea.

This week

Un Gancho al Corazón just started in the middle-of-the-night spot on Univision and on Monday it starts at 7am on Univision tlnovelas.

Thursday is Thanksgiving in EEUU. This is already a traditionally dangerous weekend, what with false narratives about the origin of the holiday, loudmouth relatives, travel, food safety concerns…and now we’re just going to pile Covid right on top of that steaming pile of risk.

I say stay home and marathon a telenovela on Netflix or YouTube and avoid the whole “Do we cook the stuffing in the bird or not and if we don’t is it really stuffing and how do we check the temperature?” controversy.

For actual safety information, please consult or contact

Telemundo will broadcast the Macy’s parade and is ditching telenovelas in the evening.

Still no word on when Buscando a Frida starts.

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.

Yes, to your Thanksgiving advice! We’re staying home with our two cats and will eat whatever strikes our fancy that day.

I just noticed on my cable guide that Telemundo is showing La Sultana in the afternoon before BLF. Are you seeing the same thing?

It looks like sometime last week, but I didn’t start checking before yesterday.

Okay, here’s the scoop. I just backtracked in the online guide, and they started airing it on Nov. 2, but it’s in half-hour episodes, from 12:00-12:30 Eastern Time. From 12:30-1:00 there’s a news show, then BLF at 1:00. That would explain why your recording isn’t picking up La Sultana, but you can probably catch it if you set your recording for an hour before BLF.
