They pose a problem for television broadcasters: Many millennials watch little or no live TV.<p>On Monday, ABC and Univision are joining forces to launch a cable channel that hopes to change that. Fusion plans to attract a young audience by blending news with entertainment and humor. And it's aiming for a specific group of millennials — young Latinos.<p>For Univision, Fusion is something new: a channel broadcasting entirely in English.
