Adele beats Swift in musicians’ showdown, nearly beats Oscars

NEW YORK (AP) – Adele drew 10.3 million viewers on a Sunday night special where she debuted new music, facilitated a proposal and chatted with Oprah Winfrey about her divorce and his workout routine.

The Nielsen Company said the CBS show almost had a larger audience than the Oscars in April and, when delayed viewers are finally considered, will likely overtake it.

Probably the two most popular musicians of the time both had weekend TV spots selling new tracks. Taylor Swift’s 10-minute performance of her song “All of Me” on “Saturday Night Live” has reached 5.8 million viewers, and the clip has already been viewed over 2.5 million times on YouTube.

The Oscars reached 10.4 million viewers on the night it was televised in April, with audiences rising to 10.7 million people adding people who saw it on tape in seven days.

Live events typically performed poorly in delayed viewing, which led CBS to believe Adele would eventually pass Oscar. CBS is also expected to rebroadcast the musician’s special.

Sunday has been a strong one for CBS. The Green Bay-Seattle football game in the late afternoon, with 22.7 million viewers, was the most-watched event on television all week. This helped “60 Minutes”, which directly followed the football game, reach its largest audience since January.

CBS leads all networks with an average of 6.1 million prime-time viewers. NBC had 5.7 million, Fox 3.83 million, ABC 3.75 million, Univision 1.5 million, Ion Television 920,000 and Telemundo 850,000.

ESPN dominated cable networks with an average of 2.91 million prime-time viewers last week. Fox News Channel had 2.37 million, Hallmark had 1.44 million, MSNBC had 1.12 million, and Paramount had 897,000.

ABC’s “World News Tonight” topped the race for evening news ratings with an average of 8.3 million viewers. NBC’s “Nightly News” had 7.1 million and the “CBS Evening News” had 5.2 million.
