Sunday night’s “Video Music Awards” telecast drew 11.4 million, making it the most-watched telecast on the cabler since 2002 and the third most of all time.Eminem

Kudocast, hosted by E! latenight host Chelsea Handler, was 27% higher than last year’s show that made headlines when Kanye West embarrassed Taylor Swift on stage and took a universal drubbing for his actions. No such seminal moment occurred in the 2010 edition in which Lady Gaga won eight Moonmen trophies , including video of the year.

In the 12-34 demo, show averaged 7.9 million viewers — the most ever for that age group.

In the post-“VMA” timeslot, doc skein “World of Jenks” garnered 4.8 million viewers and was the cabler’s all-time highest-rated series debut in the 12-34 demo.
