The Beatles Grammy Salute Delivers Over 13 Million Viewers

Via a press release from CBS. It’s nice to know that The legendary Beatles can still deliver! Last night’s Grammy special that celebrated the 50 year anniversary of the Beatles epic first appearance on The Ed Sullivan show delivered some impressive numbers against big rivals such as the Winter Olympics and The Walking Dead.

A slew of celebrities performed Fab 4 covers, while Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr joined forces to perform separately and together. The two also sat down for an interview with David Letterman in the iconic NYC theater that started it all.

All right. So the rating in the demo was only 2.1, which probably means it was mostly baby boomers tuning in to reminisce, while their kids were probably watching the zombies.
