Grammys Lose Around 2 Million Viewers from Last Year

On a night of mainly encores on other networks, the Alicia Keys-hosted CBS broadcast from Staples Center in Los Angeles also scored a 4.7 among adults 18-49 and 16.5 million viewers.

However, right now, amidst continuing controversy in the Recording Academy board room, the 62nd annual Grammys telecast is down 5% in the key demo from last year’s all-time ratings low. Looking at the set of eyeballs who tuned in, the 2020 Grammys slipped 7% for the Viacom CBS network compared with its 2019 fast affiliate viewership.

Sliding to an 18-49 low of 5.6/22 and essentially steady with 2018 in total audience, last year’s Grammys ceremony ended up with a total audience of 19.9 million.

Overall, in the early numbers, CBS easily won the night Sunday with a 4.1 rating and 15 million viewers in the 7-11 PM primetime slot.
