But the show’s ratings deliver yet another shock: According to CBS, the telecast drew 26.7 million viewers and a 10.0 adults 18-49 rating from 8 to 11:30 p.m.

That’s up very slightly from 2010 and marks the show’s biggest adult demo number since 2004 and the largest audience for the show since at least 2001.
