The Grammy Awards telecast will air on CBS through 2026, according to a deal announced Wednesday by the network and the Recording Academy, which administers the awards. The deal will keep the Grammys on CBS, its home since 1973, for 54 consecutive broadcasts.
With stiff competition from The Grammy Awards and The Walking Dead‘s season premiere, The Simpsons tied its lowest rating ever Sunday night. Ratings for both those programs will not be out until later today. The Grammys went until 11:45 p.m., so fast national ratings do not provide an accurate picture of the show’s performance; they measure only timeslot, not actual program, ratings and do not take into account time zone differences.
