Grammy Ratings Soar

Finally, some good news for the music industry: Sunday night's Grammy Awards ceremony, which featured a string of show-stopping performances including a duet between Sir Elton John and Lady Gaga, drew in a whopping 25.8 million viewers, a 35 percent boost from last year and the best rating for the show in six years. Grammys numbers even outstripped ratings for all Sunday night football games this season along with Game 4 of the World Series, and by far outperformed other awards shows, including the Golden Globes and the Emmys, which drew in 17 million and 13.5 million viewers, respectively.
