The Grammys have made sweet music in the ratings, with the show's biggest TV audience in six years.
Preliminary Nielsen figures Monday show the CBS broadcast attracted 25.8 million viewers. That would be the annual music award show's highest ratings since 2004.
"The 52nd Annual Grammy Awards" logged a year-to-year viewer boost of more than a third and dominated network rivals Sunday night.
ABC took the runner-up position for the evening. It beat out the third-place Fox network with 9.1 million versus 4.3 million viewers, respectively.
Final Nielsen ratings figures are expected Tuesday.
