Grammy telecast was a highly rated affair

While the Grammy Awards couldn’t come close to the freakishly high ratings of 2012 in the wake of Whitney Houston’s death and with Adele’s smashing success, this year’s show had the second-largest audience for the program since 1993. The Niel­sen company said Monday that music’s annual awards show was seen by 28.4 million people Sunday night on CBS. The Grammys this year were packed with high-powered musical moments and, in its awards, celebrated the industry’s diversity rather than overwhelmingly honoring one artist. It also had a few water-cooler moments: Which boyfriend was Taylor Swift specifically dissing in her latest performance of ‘‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”? Was Chris Brown flaunting his revived relationship with Rihanna?
