Earlier in the evening on CBS was 7-8 p.m. special “Live From the Grammy Red Carpet” at a dominant 5.5/10 in households.
NBC ducked “The Grammys” with 2016 theatrical “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” which scored a modest 1.7/ 3 in households from 7-10 p.m. That led into a Sunday 10 p.m. ET of “Dateline” at a 1.8/ 4 (#2).
Fox, meanwhile, aired original episodes of its Sunday animated sitcoms despite facing “The Grammys” (see results below). And ABC was in repeats.
