The 2013 broadcast of the 11:30pm to 1am show posted its highest ratings in 11 years, with 22.2 million total viewers. For ABC, only the Academy Awards did more.
“With Miley Cyrus at 11:40 pm and Billy Joel at 12:05 am it should be a great great night,” executive producer Barry Adelman told Billboard.“We have become an American tradition.” The show began in 1972 aboard the Queen Mary in Long Beach, California, with Three Dog Night performing.
