This year’s Grammy Awards saw a sharp drop in viewers, according to the latest ratings figures released Mondy.
Just over 19.8 million viewers tuned into Sunday’s show, a 24 percent decline from last year’s awards. Viewership for the 2018 awards ceremony made it the least-watched since 2009.
Metered market ratings released Monday predicted this year’s Grammys would mark an all-time ratings low for the 18-to-49 demographic, according to Deadline.
The 2018 Grammy Awards, held at Madison Square Garden in New York City, offered no shortage of politics.
