Adele’s ‘One Night Only’ CBS Special Dominates TV Ratings With 10 Million Viewers

Published: Monday 15th Nov 2021 by Rashad

Thanks to ‘One Night Only,’ Sunday night (November 14) belonged to the one and the only Adele Adkins.

As we reported here, the GRAMMY-winning diva brought her soaring pipes and career-spanning brigade of hits to an intimate audience (which included Drake, Leonardo DiCaprio, Lizzo, and more) at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles via an Oprah-hosted, two-hour CBS special.

When not showcasing live renditions of megahits ‘Rolling in the Deep,’ ‘Hello,’ and more, Addy showed off new songs ‘Easy On Me,’ ‘I Drink Wine,’ and more between clips from a tell-all interview with O.

If the viewership report is anything to judge by, the night of enchantment is just what the doctor ordered for American TV viewers.

Viewership: 10 Million


“Adele One Night Only, which featured the singer performing past hits and songs from her upcoming album 30 — and sitting for an interview with Oprah Winfrey — averaged 9.92 million viewers, per time zone adjusted fast national ratings from Nielsen.

That’s well above CBS’ usual tune-in for a Sunday, and a little bit more than this year’s Oscars (9.85 million). It’s also the highest viewer total for a CBS entertainment show since an episode of NCIS in April.”

    Because she is that girl! She is very likable and a personality that goes a long way.

    She is also the only artist out here giving vocals

    Also an Oprah interview always helps any networks ratings

      “She is also the only artist out here giving vocals”

    This is huge.
    Award shows aren’t doing this numbers with all the celebrities and influencers attending.

    She is funny and has a huge personality.
    I just hope there are uptempo songs on this album.

    Adele’s audience is older people, wine moms, retirees, etc.

      Maybe if you actually watched this you would know she does have some uptempo songs on the album she performed new music

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 November 16, 2021

      • Gag You Imbecile November 16, 2021

    Adele is now officially a sell out!! Comeback on American TV the woman is British and it’s the UK where she was catapulted to fame!!

    • Your Name November 16, 2021

      Sell out how??? Didn’t she just give a free concert in the UK? America is the biggest music market and it’s her home now. Everyone knows she’s British.
