“It’s been very successful and it’s great that a show about music can be that successful and it’s good for everybody. And I think it’s a really good show,” Jagger said in a phone interview Tuesday.

Last month’s season finale for the hit Fox series drew 17.6 million viewers in the second hour of the two-hour event. The first hour scored 15.8 million viewers.
