Grammys TV audience down from last year

  • Some 28.1 million Americans tuned in to watch the Grammy Awards show on television, down 30 percent from last year, according to early ratings data released on Monday.

    Despite the lower numbers, Sunday's live broadcast was the second-largest television audience for the music industry awards night since 1993.

    Last year’s telecast, which took place a day after singer Whitney Houston was found drowned in a bathtub in a Beverly Hills hotel, drew 39.9 million viewers. It was the second-largest Grammy TV audience ever.

    This year's show in Los Angeles saw English folk band Mumford & Sons take home the Grammy for Album of the Year for Babel. Indie-pop group FUN. won Song of the Year for We Are Young, while American rock band The Black Keys won three Grammys for their album El Camino.
