The one from last night The Grammy Awards were relatively funassuming you enjoy watching musicians perform their hits and don’t mind the actual awards ceremony (about 70 were given out in a pre-show event, leaving only about 10 for the show itself) and also assuming you don’t think it devalues ​​the entire Grammys organization to occasionally hand out trophies to the likes of Louis CK, but if you can overcome these hurdles: some relative fun awaits!

But even relative fun isn’t enough for the Grammy Awards to make a sizeable dent in cultural awareness, as last night’s show garnered only marginally better ratings than last year’s awards’ all-time low record. Coming from diversity, which explains that the slightly out-of-the-way 2021 Grammys had about 9.4 million viewers, depending on what metrics you trust, and this year’s show about 9.6 million. On the one hand, it’s an improvement! On the other hand, it’s hardly an improvement. In contrast, the 2020 Grammys, held in January this year when everyone was still happy, came in at 18.8 million.

That’s 9.6 million quiet lower than the all-time low for the Oscars, which was also from the 2021 awards. The Oscars 2022 had about 13.7 million viewers last weekand that was the second-lowest ratings the Oscars have ever received, but that’s doom and gloom quiet better than what the Grammys have done in recent years.

When the Oscar ratings came out, we realized that dramatic, controversial ceremonies don’t necessarily result in good ratings next year, but it doesn’t seem surprising that perhaps a straightforward, mostly harmless ceremony like last night’s Grammys might attract more people could convince to agree next year. If the Oscars have a history of being a shit show and the Grammys have a history of being a pretty good time, maybe there will eventually be a shift where Music’s Biggest Night becomes more of a cultural event than the Oscars… but only into the feeling that neither of them is watching anymore.
