The channel, IMHO, has always been an answer in search of a problem.

"Aimed on people whose ancestory is hispanic, but who were born in the US and speak English, either exclusively or primarially"

Umm, we have several channels that do that. ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, TBS, TNT... About 300 of them.

It seems fairly clear ... a channel for people of that heritage but in the English language instead of Spanish. Most Spanish heritage channels are in the Spanish language. This one is more like BET ... focused on the heritage but presented in English.

Actually, what you'll see in this L.A. Times article is that although the above represented the original mission statement, Univision didn't stick to that once the channel actually launched. ABC felt that Fusion ended up being aimed at the same demographic as their ABC Family/Freeform channel.

I regularly watch one show on Fusion, "No, You Shut Up!", and there's definitely no attempt to aim that show to Hispanics/Latinos.
