Lucifer Ratings Vs Grammys

Ratings: Opposite Dominant Grammy Awards, Lucifer Takes the Smallest Hit

CBS’ presentation of the Grammy Awards on Monday night drew 23.7 million total viewers and a 7.4 demo rating, dipping 4 and 11 percent from last year’s Sunday telecast (and of course subject to adjustment).

Of the competition facing off against the mighty kudoscast, Fox’s Lucifer (5.2 mil/1.6) took the smallest hit, down just 6 percent and a tenth week-to-week. Leading into that, The X-Files (7.1 mil/2.1) slipped 14 and 16 percent.

Over on ABC, The Bachelor (7.2 mil/2.2) slipped 16 and 12 percent, while Castle (5.1 mil/0.9) was down 10 and 18 percent week-to-week (yet up versus — faint praise alert! — Valentine’s Day).

NBC’s Superstore (3.9 mil/1.2) was down 25 and 14 percent, while Telenovela (2.3 mil/0.7) fell 30 and 22 percent to its second-worst numbers to date. The Biggest Loser (2.8 mil/0.8) shed 26 and 27 percent to hit series lows.
