Sunday’s TV ratings are in.  Here’s a brief look at the highlights:

  • Though last night’s broadcast of The 2013 Grammy Awards marked the return of one Justin Timberlake to the stage, the show failed to match last year’s record ratings which came on the heels of the sudden death of Whitney Houston.  The ceremony notched a 10.1 rating and 28.37 million viewers—no small feat—but was down from the monster 14.1 rating from last year’s broadcast.
  • ABC’s Once Upon a Time returned to the airwaves to a series-low 2.2 rating and 7.02 million viewers.  The show’s last original episode marked a season low rating of 2.4.
  • Also down was Revenge, which notched a 1.4 rating and 5.07 million viewers for a series low performance.  That’s down three tenths from its last original’s 1.7 rating
