Monday Final Nationals: CBS Rock Solid Despite Seven-Year Grammys Low

CBS crushed its Monday competition due to the telecast of the “58th Annual Grammy Awards”. Although the 211-minute event drew solid figures all around — especially during these times on TV — it was the least-watched, lowest-rated (in adults 18-49) Grammys since Feb. 8, 2009 (19.05 million, 7.4 adults 18-49 rating).

The Grammys aired on a non-Sunday night for the first time since Feb. 8, 2006 (which was a Wednesday).

  1. Visitors requesting ratings are only allowed a MAXIMUM of TWO shows per query. You cannot make additional requests until the prior ones you had made are addressed.

    With the exception of broadcast network half-hours, time-block requests will not be answered. Requests also won’t be fulfilled for a network’s show rankings nor telecasts of marathons longer than two-hour periods.

    Please note Programming Insider will not answer any request for a show’s ratings prior to November 16, 2015. If you are requesting prior dates’ numbers from November 16 or later, you MUST post your query as a comment at that respective date’s ratings page via http://programminginsider.com/category/ratings/

  2. Douglas, may you please provide GSN afternoon ratings from 2/15 for shows like Catch 21, The Pyramid and Chain Reaction?

  3. These sub-demos appear to be off. My educated guess is that you gave us the 18-49 and 25-54 ones instead of the 18-34 and 18-49 ones.
