Grammys concert show wasn't a hit, but wasn't a bomb

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

CBS' Grammy nominations special wasn't a breakaway hit with viewers Wednesday night, but it didn't play off-key.

The concert-and-announcements show attracted 7.1 million viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research. This meant a fourth-place position among programs that were separated by only a million.

Read Jim DeRogatis' review and report from the show, and more coverage on our Gold Rush awards-season blog.


NBC's "Life" led in the 8-9 p.m. slot with 8.1 million viewers, followed by the second half of the premiere of Fox's "Secret Millionaire" with 8.0 million. ABC's "Private Practice" was third with 7.8 million.

The prime-time special was a first for the Grammys, which typically have announced the nominations in the morning with brief TV coverage.

The Grammys will air Feb. 8 on CBS.
