#Oscars Ratings Slip to All-Time Low

Published: Tuesday 11th Feb 2020 by Rashad

Despite offering many-a-jaw dropping moment from tongue-in-cheek tackling of social and political issues to shocking wins and upsets, the 92nd Academy Awards itself was far from a winner (on the ratings front).

Drawing a considerable drop in viewership from last year’s numbers, the nearly four-hour hostless affair pulled in even lower figures than its 2018 edition (which previously held the record for lowest views as we reported here).

Look inside to see just how many watched the annual spectacle:

2020 Oscars Viewership = 23.6 million


“The Academy Awards plummeted to an all-time ratings low with the 2020 telecast, drawing 3 million fewer viewers than the previous bottom in 2018.

Sunday’s broadcast on ABC, according to Nielsen figures, earned 23.6 million viewers — a sharp 20 percent decline from the 2019 ceremony. The show also dropped 31 percent in the ad sales demographic of adults age 18 to 49, Deadline reports.”

    This is every award show, EVERY year. People just don’t care about award shows anymore. The star power isn’t there, plus there are more exciting things to watch. Not to mention, people have cut the cord, or barely watch live TV anymore. 23 million is still a hell of a lot of people.

    The no host formula isn’t working.
    It’s just boring. Such a waste when you have so much talent under one roof. Time to revamp the show, floor to ceiling.
