With the untimely passing of superstar singer Whitney Houston in the middle of Grammy weekend it is now expected that tonight’s telecast of the 2012 Grammy Awards will garner an additional 3 – 5 million viewers.  This would continue the 3 percent uptick in viewers between the 25.8 million in 2010 and 26.5 million in 2011 and put the 2012 ratings growth at over 10 percent between 2011 and 2012.
