It was a good year for the Grammy Awards! The 56th Annual awards show brought in 28.5 million viewers, with a 10.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic, according to CBS. Last year’s show had 28.4 million viewers, also with a 10.1 rating in the demo.

At the same time, Bachelor couple Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici’s wedding aired live on ABC. Unfortunately, the nuptials didn’t pull in big numbers, with 6.2 million viewers and just a 1.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic. That number is down from the reality show’s current season, featuring Juan Pablo Galavis, which had 7.8 million viewers last Monday.

However, there was a major ratings boost compared to the network’s last televised wedding for Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum in 2012 — a 53 percent increase in viewers, to be exact!
