The Grammy Awards were the dominant show in the ratings for Feb. 6-12, and that hasn’t changed much with three days of DVR and on-demand viewing. The awards added half a point to their 18-49 rating and about 1.3 million viewers, staying head and shoulders above the rest of the pack.

The top scripted shows, however, closed the margin somewhat. “The Big Bang Theory” and “This Is Us” each rose to a 4.5 in adults 18-49 (up from 3.0 and 2.6). “NCIS” and “Big Bang” were the top regular series in viewers, each drawing a three-day total of more than 18 million and cutting the Grammys’ lead from more than 11 million viewers to (a still sizable) 9.1 million.
