America, one of the fastest-growing U.S. Hispanic television networks, announced that its hit musical reality show La Academia attracted 1.06 million viewers 2+ for its June 27 live concert, where it determined the six finalists who will compete on July 3 for over $400,000 in prize money.
“We’re on the brink of another ratings milestone for our young network as we anticipate well over 1 million viewers for our final concert,” said Azteca
