Now that the red carpet has been rolled away, it's time for us to once again look at the viewing performance of the more popular awards shows: the Academy Awards, the Grammys and the Golden Globes.

Did the lack of presenter for the Academy awards have any impact on TV viewing? Are the Grammys holding the attention of younger audiences? Which market has the highest viewing for the Golden Globes?

With the help of ConexAPI we can pull this analysis quickly and present the results in our Hot Topics dashboard.  This dashboard report is available to our PPM subscribers in Lens TV and the InfoSys+TV homepage.

TV viewing highlights include:
