Ratings: Grammys Down from Record Year But Still Strong, ABC Dramas Hit Low Notes
That represents the kudoscast’s second-largest audience since 1993 — trailing last year’s quasi-Whitney Houston tribute, which drew a record crowd of 40 mil — and its second-highest rating since 2004.
Facing such formidable competition, both ABC’s Once Upon a Time (7 mil, down two tenths to a 2.2 rating) and Revenge (5.1 mil, down 18 percent to a 1.4) lost about 10 percent in audience while getting knocked to series-low demos — the same fate suffered by Desperate Housewives and Pan Am a year prior.
Similarly, Fox’s ‘toon line-up from took an across-the-board hit from 8 to 10 pm, with Family Guy suffering the largest blow (down 17 percent to a 2.4) yet still standing as the night’s second highest-rated program.
