2018 Grammys Show Takes Ratings Tumble

Bruno Mars

The Recording Academy held its annual Grammy Awards Sunday night (Jan. 28) at New York City’s Madison Square Garden, marking the Grammy Awards’ first time back in the Big Apple since 2003. The show saw big wins for Bruno Mars,┬áKendrick Lamar, and, in the country field, Chris Stapleton, who took home three honors, including Country Album, Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance.

However, early ratings metrics show the awards show took a tumble from 2017’s ratings, with this year’s show dipping 21 percent from 2017.

In 2017, an Adele-dominated show earned 26.08 million viewers and a 7.8 rating among adults 18-49. This year, viewership was at 17.64 million, with ratings of 5.4/19 among adults 18-49.
