Tuesday Final Nationals: Kennedy Center Honors on CBS Delivers Second-Largest Total Audience in Six Years

CBS was Tuesday’s top network in all key figures. The 2016 edition of the “Kennedy Center Honors” (8.62 million viewers) which honored such artists as James Taylor, Mavis Staples, Al Pacino and The Eagles was up 14 percent over the previous year (7.55 million) and drew the event’s second largest live-plus-same-day viewership since 2010; only 2014 was larger (9.25 million) within that span.
