The Grammy Awards on CBS were up a little bit year to year, and they helped CBS score an across-the-board win in the weekly ratings for Feb. 6-12.

The awards were by far the No. 1 show in both adults 18-49 (7.8 rating, more than 2 1/2 times higher than No. 2 “The Big Bang Theory” at 3.0) and viewers (26.07 million, 10-million plus ahead of second-place “NCIS”).

“This Is Us” (third in 18-49, eighth in viewers) continued its strong season for NBC, and ABC got an uncommonly strong performance from a heavily hyped “NBA Saturday Primetime” contest. The game between Golden State and Oklahoma City earned a 2.2, good for sixth place. FOX’s “24: Legacy” and “APB” also cracked the Top 25 in adults 18-49.

Here are the network standings for the week of Feb. 6-12 and the season to date.
