LOS ANGELES(CelebrityAccess) — Even with a move to Monday night to avoid the Valentine's Day holiday, the 2016 Grammys only slipped a little, almost holding dead even with its ratings in 2015.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the CBS live broadcast of the awards show slipped slightly, posting a 16.1 overnight rating among Nielsen's metered market households Monday night, off from last year's a 16.7 overnight rating.
The Grammys did slide in one key area, with the 2016 edition of the awards show down roughly 8 percent over the 2015 telecast's average 8.5 rating among adults 18-49 and 25.3 million viewers.
Overall, the Grammys took the top spot for entertainment telecast in the admittedly brief 2016 thus far. – Staff Writers
