THE GRAMMYS Lead CBS to Big Weekly Ratings Win

CBS rocked and rolled to a weekly win in viewers, adults 18-49 and adults 25-54, according to Nielsen live plus same day ratings for the week ending Jan. 26, Week 18 of the 2013-2014 television season.



CBS was first in viewers (11.28m), adults 18-49 (2.7/07) and adults 25-54 (3.4/08). Compared to the same week last year, CBS was up +26% in viewers, +31% in adults 25-54 and +50% in adults 18-49. Season-to-date, CBS has expanded its lead in viewers (now +2.3 million viewers ahead of second-place NBC) and is tied for first among adults 25-54.



The week was highlighted by THE 56TH GRAMMY AWARDS, which averaged 28.51 million viewers, the second-largest audience for the awards broadcast in 21 years (1993).



Even with a week comprised primarily of rebroadcasts, CBS had the week's top three programs and 13 of the top 20 programs in viewers. Rebroadcasts of NCIS, NCIS: LOS ANGELES, THE BIG BANG THEORY, The Big Bang Theory 9:00 PM SPECIAL and Blue Bloods delivered more viewers than any scripted program on the competition. NCIS (R) delivered more viewers than any program on the competition.





In adults 18-49 (including ties), CBS had five of the top 10 broadcasts - THE 56TH ANNUAL Grammy Awards (#1), How I Met Your Mother (#6), The Big Bang Theory (R) (#7), 2 Broke Girls (#9) and The Big Bang Theory 9PM SPECIAL (R) (S) (#10).
