Grammys Ratings Lowest Since 1995

With a 28 percent drop in viewership, the 2005 Grammy Awards ceremony received its lowest ratings since 1995. An estimated 18.8 million people watched the Grammys, but many switched to ABC in the middle of the broadcast to watch Desperate Housewives. Last year, the Emmys had their lowest rated year ever, and ratings for the recent Golden Globes and the American Music Awards were less than expected.
