Ratings: Grammys hit six-year high, dominate Sunday

Posted on

CBS easily won Sunday night’s ratings race with a 52nd Annual Grammy Awards that hit a six-year high for the event, 26.6 million viewers, according to early Nielsen estimates. The Eye net also came out on top the rest of the weekend as well, thanks to 48 Hours Mystery on Saturday (7.1 million) and Ghost Whisperer (8.3 million) and Medium (8 million) on Friday. Fox’s Dollhouse concluded its run on Friday with a typically weak 2.2 million viewers while 20/20 drew its strongest numbers in three months — 8.1 million viewers — with an interview with John Edwards’ former aide Andrew Young.
