Ratings: Grammy Awards audience hits 3-year viewing high on CBS
The tune CBS is singing today is a happy one given the early numbers for Sunday night’s broadcast of the 65th Grammy Awards.
Hosted by Trevor Noah, this year’s Grammys drew a total of 12.4 million viewers, up 30 percent from last year, and marked the ceremony’s largest audience since January 2020, its last pre-pandemic outing.
Similarly, the Grammys reached its largest live-streamed audience in history via Paramount+ and other CBS platforms, up 33 percent year-over-year on all metrics.
Among the many highlights of the kudoscast was Beyoncé – arriving late at the Crypto.com Arena due to traffic! – made it to the ceremony in time to collect her record-breaking 32nd trophy. And that makes her the most awarded musician in the 64-year history of the Grammys.
This year’s Grammys broadcast also honored 50 years of hip-hop with an all-star medley (find clips here) featuring Big Boi, Busta Rhymes with Spliff Star, De La Soul, DJ Drama, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Future, GloRilla, Grandmaster Flash , Grandmaster Mele Mel and Scorpio/Ethiopian King, Ice-T, Lil Baby, The Lox, Method Man, Missy Elliott, Nelly, Public Enemy, Queen Latifah, Questlove, Rahiem, Rakim, The Roots, Run-DMC, Salt -N-Pepa and DJ Spinderella, Scarface, Swizz Beatz And Too $short.

The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our review column do not reflect the overall performance of a show, given the increasing use of delayed playback across DVR and streaming platforms, as well as viewing outside the home. These numbers (Nielsen Fast Nationals unless designated Finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. This is just an exhibition, this is not a competition. Please no bets.
