2014 Grammy Awards a hit with viewers

The Grammy Awards hit all the right notes with viewers on Sunday.

According to Nielsen’s preliminary ratings, roughly 28.5 million viewers tuned in to the show on CBS.

That’s up from last year’s 28.4 million viewers and marks the second largest audience since February 1993 -- behind the 2012 ceremony that took place a day after Whitney Houston was found dead at the Beverly Hilton. 

Daft Punk won big on Sunday, walking away with album of the year. Also taking home multiple honors were Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Pharrell Williams and Kacey Musgraves.

LL Cool J served as host of the three-and-a-half-hour show, which took place at Los Angeles' Staples Center.
