Select Ratings from Original Cable telecasts on Monday February 15, 2016:

BETTER CALL SAUL began its second season with a robust 2.573 million viewers. This, however; was down from the 6.881M who watched the premiere last year, but up from the 2.532M who watched the season one finale. Said number is also up from the 1.662M that watched the second season premiere of BREAKING BAD back in 2009, and from the 1.411M who watched BAD's series premiere in 2008. The first TALKING SAUL had an audience of 744,000, which was down from the first TALKING BAD's 1.185M back in 2013 (although that broadcast had a 5.915M lead-in).

THE GRAMMY AWARDS led the night with 24.95 million viewers on CBS which translated to a 7.66 18-49 rating. This was up from last year's 24.82M viewers, but down from the 8.3 18-49 rating. MTV's TEEN MOM fell to 1.49M viewers (from 1.88M), but TRUE LIFE rose to 675,000 (from 548K). On Freeform, THE FOSTERS lost 23K viewers, to 814,000, and RECOVERY ROAD "recovered" somewhat to 488,000 (from 446K). THE MAGICIANS led Syfy's night, bringing in 748,000 viewers (about level with last week's 745K), but LOST GIRL rose to 458,000 (from 411K), and BITTEN began its final season with 466,000.
