Ratings: Grammys Nearly Steady vs. 2019, Draws 18.7 Million Total Viewers

Grammys Eilish 2020

CBS’ broadcast of the 62nd Grammy Awards on Sunday night delivered 18.7 million total viewers and a 5.4 rating (per fast finals), down just 6 and 4 percent from last year while delivering this TV season’s most watched and highest rated entertainment program. That said, that demo number marks an all time low for the show, falling below last year’s 5.6 demo rating. (The 2006 Grammys has the smallest audience: 17 mil.)

Elsewhere, per fast nationals….

THE CW | Batwoman (870K/0.2) and Supergirl (965K/0.2) each added viewers while steady in the demo — with the former improving on last week’s audience low and the latter equaling its second-largest non-crossover audience of the season.

NBC | American Ninja Warrior: USA vs. the World (2.2 mil/0.4) was down sharply from last year.

ABC | A last-minute Kobe Bryant news special did 2.5 mil and a 0.5, leading out of reruns.

The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our daily-ish ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increases in delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms. These Live+Same Day numbers instead are used to illustrate any trends or high/low superlatives. Happy Fun Ball may stick to certain types of skin.
