So, Lady Gaga's egg antics, Cee Lo's Muppet show and Esperanza Spalding's Justin Bieber takedown must've really bombed, huh?
Not. At. All.
The occasionally bleeped telecast averaged a whopping 26.7 million viewers, final numbers show. That's up a bit from last year, and, per CBS, represents the biggest Grammy audience in 10--no, make that--11 years.
The show did best among the Mick Jagger- and Barbra Streisand-aged crowd; it was weakest among teen boys, who clearly didn't know their hated Bieber was going to go down to defeat.
As for the reviews, they weren't all bad.
Oh, we surely hope James Franco is planning to get his Gaga on.
