It appears not even the combined forces of Ariana Grande, Lizzo, Billie Eilish, and Camila Cabello would be enough to save this year’s Grammys from failing to attract viewers.
Indeed, after preliminary ratings reports indicated a low tune-in for the Alicia Keys-hosted affair, today’s official and final figures confirm the previously suspected: folks were simply not here for Grammys 2020.
Garnering its lowest total viewership figure ever, tuck in below to see exactly how many tuned in:
Viewership: 18.7 million
The over three-hour marathon of performances and trophy handouts gathered 18.7 million viewers for CBS on Sunday night, marking the ceremony’s lowest rated broadcast ever, according to Nielsen ratings.
This year’s broadcast saw a roughly six percent drop from last year’s ceremony, which had 19.9 million viewers. However, the Grammys faced a whopping 53 percent drop from 2012, which had 39.9 million viewers.
