Adele NBC Special Scores Major Ratings

Published: Tuesday 15th Dec 2015 by Sam

Adele isn’t just triumphing on the charts, she’s booking big ratings too.

Last night, NBC aired the special ‘Adele Live In New York City’ in support of the diva’s blockbuster album ’25.’

Taped last month at the iconic Radio City Music Hall, the show brought with it performances of new tracks  such as ‘Hello,”All I Ask,’ and the LP’s next single ‘When We Were Young.’ Also offered up live were renditions of modern classics ‘Someone Like You’ and ‘Skyfall.’

So, just how many tuned in to Ms. Adkins’ big night? Find out below…

THR reports that the special was watched by a whopping 11.3 million viewers. Crucially, it scored a 3.0 rating among adults 18-49.

The hour-long one-off benefitted from a lead-in from The Voice finale, which was the highest-rated series of the night (3.2 rating in the key demo.) Interestingly, Adele retained almost all who tuned in to the climax talent-search – re-affirming the power in her own name.

    • You tried December 15, 2015

      Not with my help?

      This site went from being a cool rnb/pop site to an angry g_ay blog site.

      All these nasty angry G_ays making rude ugly comments about singers who could care less.

      Adele, has outstold every female you worship but Mariah Carey and Madonna. Mariah Carey had a diamond CD first.

      Adele is the “it” girl right now, while she may not “DANCE” around on stage to hide her lack of singing ability.

      Her voice is the TRUTH.

    Try something new Adele…try to let go and move on. So depressing listening to this overrated pig! ?

    • Kayla C December 15, 2015

      Why would she do something different to satisfy YOU? You don’t matter… She is pleasing millions

  3. IG: @mixedboy December 15, 2015

  4. Christina Aguilera December 15, 2015

    She’s already carving them curves out

  5. Suicide Blonde December 15, 2015

    The bitter souls fuming in here because Adele, makes it see the recent success of The self-titled album mediocre.

    • Mimi December 15, 2015

      Shut your fake ass up, when you were the one that said “She’s so overrated, I just don’t get it”. With that said, go back under your Sheet.

      • Suicide Blonde December 15, 2015

        She’s overrated but she’s slaying your girl, wasn’t she the biggest star on the planet according to her fans?

      • Mimi December 15, 2015

        And she still is, now go start that rally.

      • Suicide Blonde December 15, 2015

        Lol, not even close, where is her diamond album?

      • Mimi December 15, 2015

        Doesn’t need one, and she still runs it. Stay mad f** lol.

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig December 15, 2015

        …. Nevermind would have never turned diamond unless Kurt offed himself, and even then, it still took 8 years after it’s original release to get there. Dw i’m a Nirvana fan too, so I have the receipts too 🙂

      • Suicide Blonde December 15, 2015

        Courtney never say that Nirvana were the second coming of The Beatles, and she is crazy, while Jay-Z actually claim that Beyoncé is the second coming of MJ, you think such a powerful star would have at least a diamond album 😀

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) December 15, 2015

      I Bet THE CLAN reviews ur comments before u’re allowed to post them!!!!!!!!!!!! LAMO. #RACISTCUNT

      • Suicide Blonde December 15, 2015

        Beyoncé wanted to be a member but The Clan said that she hasn’t bleached her skin enough to be considered white, maybe with time.

      • Surprise..(DEC 2013) December 15, 2015

        LOL..THAT’S THE BEST UR RACIST ASS CAN COME UP WITH. I would have thought the CLAN would have taught you better on how to hate on BLACK artist. So not only are u a CLAN member…(THE ONE IN THE MIDDLE)…U’re also weak and miserable..LOL. . (P.S I BET U A*** IS THE ENTERTAINMENT SECTION FOR THE CLAN, EVERY WHITE MAN “CUMS” IN WHENEVER THEY WANT.

      • Mimi December 15, 2015

        Lmaooooo, oh my, Lol.

      • Suicide Blonde December 15, 2015

        I’m just playing your game baby, don’t get mad.

      • Surprise..(DEC 2013) December 15, 2015

        LMAO..No is getting mad..I’m just pointing out ur RACIST demeanour on this blog.

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig December 15, 2015

        @SuicideBootySnatcher Courtney Love is a legitimate out-and-out crack fiend, and she looks like the type of ho3 to wear the same underwear for days at a time. Is Cocainey Love the best defense you can come up with? why should anyone trust your opinion when you compared Rih0enna to Bob Marley. You’re automatically dismissed by default!!!

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig December 15, 2015

        SCREAMING! You betta hang SuicideBumhole like he’s an ornament on your christmas tree.

  6. Weezy Tha Goat December 15, 2015

    She stays winning.

  7. StarXavi December 15, 2015

    I loved the special last night. She sounded amazing and looked beautiful. What was really great to see was her personality shine through when she would talk to the audience between songs. I think I fell in love with Adele last night. Some people are saying she is overrated but there is no denying that her songs and lyrics are things all people can relate to and i think people identify with that. Plus her talent is incredible. Her voice sounds stronger than ever. I’m gonna actually buy the album! I was really feeling the new songs.

  8. London December 15, 2015

    LMAO You guys stay dragging that power bottom racist Suicide dumb ass LOL.

    Adele’s talented, boring, but talented, i’m happy for her for her though.

  9. xedos December 15, 2015

    that shyt was boring

  10. Music all the way December 15, 2015

    Be carefull not to over-expose her….She is literally in our faces.. EVERYWHERE

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) December 15, 2015

      AGREED!! She is doing what BORELOR SWIFT does, but in a less intrusive way. That makes her more digestible than TAYLOR, who was so damn annoying during her campaign.

  11. @JanetCIARA_ December 15, 2015

    I loved it, great job Adele…. Crazy stand will try to tear you down when they see your doing better than their fave! (True Tea).
    Just keep doing you Adele, you are history making!

    P.S. “I Bet” is now certified PLATINUM by the RIAA! ^_^

  12. Boykin December 15, 2015

    You pressed heifers simply can’t deal. No one else will be posting numbers like Adele until she does it again with her fourth album. Until then, you keep sitting on your thumbs going nowhere.

    • Umm December 15, 2015

      Maybe not the numbers but there are tons of girls slaying her vocally, yesterday, today and tomorrow. Numbers don’t alleviate the fact that she’s a second rate Amy Winehouse

      • Boykin December 15, 2015

        Tons of girls? No. There are a handful. Anyone else you’d name would not be agreed upon by a majority, but would be your own, unqualified opinion, which, really, is what all of this is—subjective. Adele simply isn’t for you, but you’re in the minority.

        As for Amy, short of them both being British, Adele has little in common with her sonically. It’s an absolutely lazy comparison, but one I’m not surprised you chose to make. Amy was one of the purest artists. That’s all that needs to be said.

      • Umm December 15, 2015

        Kelly Price, Pink, Faith Evans, lalah Hathaway, Fantasia, kelly clarkson, keke Wyatt, Beyonce, Tamar Braxton, Marsha Ambrosius, Melanie Daniels, erykah badu , India arie, lady Gaga, Leona Lewis., to name a few. I mean I really could keep going on and on and list singers that would slay her live. I could keep going and provide multiple receipts

      • Umm December 15, 2015

        Not to mention the fact she sings every song live exactly the same everytime which is boring AF.

      • Umm December 15, 2015

        She’d better be extremely thankful Amy passed because the melodramatic, negative, soulful Brit act was already on lock and 10 times better

      • Boykin December 15, 2015

        You go on ahead and find those nonexistent receipts. Best of luck in your search.

  13. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans December 15, 2015

    I would LOVE for her to do something with Shakira…something upbeat…maybe among the lines of “Hey You” or “The Day and the Time”.

  14. ?Queen Molly? December 15, 2015

    Post on I BET going PLATINUM slow h***

  15. Theman December 15, 2015

    She was far from boring. She has an outstanding personality. She was phenomenal & beautiful! She pulled in massive numbers. That’s more than some tv shows.

  16. JOHNVIDAL December 15, 2015

    Did any of you guys watched her Skyfall performance? I´m curious because I think she only performed it once, and it was totally underwhelming (and after months and months of vocal rest). It was at the oscars, where they stand up for anything these days but nobody stood up for her when the performance ended. Can´t blame them but I was really surprised they didn´t if only for the hype.
    Did she do better this time with that song?

  17. DIABETES UNBOTHERED December 15, 2015

    Im a little jealous of ADELE STANS… Bey hasnt had a decent album campain since IASF. The campain for 4 was ok but very RANDON and all over the place. I guess Adele is making up for not promoting 21 for months until the album actually got big. Damn i love columbia records tho they know how to push their artist to superstardom like no other. Wasnt MJ on SONY too?

    • #JACKIE December 15, 2015

      Beyonce and Jay Z think they’re above promoting like you think you’re above working out 🙁

  18. #JACKIE December 15, 2015

    Numbers, numbers numbers!!!! I get it. Her sales are amazing for 2015 but does her music match the hype? Seriously nobody talks about the f****** music.

  19. DIABETES UNBOTHERED December 15, 2015

    Damn ALI CARTER STAN… how tf CERROR get a 66 score on metacritic??? So OVERRATED… 36 is more like it.

  20. No favs, just here for the music December 16, 2015

    She’s amazing

    Also her album will sell another 800K this week
