The 2016 Grammy Awards Ceremony Is the Lowest-Rated One Since 2009
Only 25 million viewers tuned in
Though there was no shortage of goings-on at last night’s annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles — Taylor Swift firing back at Kanye West’s misogynistic lyrics; Kendrick Lamar performing the hell out of his medley; Paul McCartney getting rejected from Tyga’s afterparty — the ratings for the ceremony just arrived, and they’re certainly less than stellar.
Bringing in 25 million viewers, the Grammy Awards did beat out its other competitors last night, but came in 30,000 under the 2015 ceremony. In 2014, the show pulled 28 million eyes, and its largest audience in years came in 2012, when just under 40 million tuned in.
The 2016 Grammy Awards are the lowest-rated in six years.
