Adele’s Live in New York City NBC special, which aired last night (12/14), drew spectacular ratings, becoming the top-rated primetime music special since The EaglesFarewell Tour in 2005 and the network’s most-watched concert special since Cher’s Farewell Tour in 2003.

The show, which you can watch in its entirety below, is slated to re-air on 12/23 (Wed.) at 9pm. Some insiders believe it could attract an even bigger audience this close to the holiday (it will be followed by the Michael Bublé Christmas Special).

The hour-long concert, taped last month at Radio City Music Hall (see our own Lenny Beer’s thoughts on the live performance here), drew 11.2 million viewers and a 3.0 demo rating. The show also gave NBC its best ratings in the Monday 10pm timeslot since The Blacklist Season 2 premiere and the bow of thriller series Blindspot.

The special had a terrific lead-in as well: The Voice final showdown. Both shows sent viewers scurrying to iTunes; Voice contestants currently clog the top of the singles chart, while Adele’s current blockbuster 25 is the #1 album and prior monster 21 is #6. Her “Hello” has been temporarily dislodged from the top spot on the singles side and sits for the moment at #4. Voice contestant Jordan Smith is currently #1.

Look for Adele to rack up another 800k or so this week and 1m leading into Christmas, likely closing out the year at around 7.5m.
