The Oscar awards show on Sunday night saw its ratings fall almost sixty percent from last year, which until now was the worst rated Oscar awards show ever.
One has to wonder why they even bother with this awards show anymore. Rich, left wing celebrities feel a burning need to lecture the country on politics and all it does is damage the entertainment industry.
Millions of Americans have just tuned them out.
TV Ratings: Oscars Plummet to Record Low, Down 58% Compared to Last Year
The 93rd Academy Awards ceremony, broadcast live from both Union Station and the Dolby Theatre in L.A. on ABC, hit a staggering low.
Per Nielsen Live+Same Day preliminary national numbers, an average of 9.85 million viewers tuned in on Sunday evening to watch a more intimate and stripped-down version of the Oscars in the midst of a pandemic. That’s a 58.3%, 13.75 million viewer drop-off from last year. The Academy’s third host-less show in a row scored a 1.9 rating among adults 18-49 in the fast national ratings, a 64.2% dip from 2020.
For comparison, last year’s ceremony garnered a 5.3 rating in the key demographic and 23.6 million viewers per the night’s time-zone adjusted fast national charts. The Oscars in 2019 delivered a 7.7 rating in adults 18-49 and 29.6 million viewers.
While up 12% from 2018, that viewership figure represented the second-smallest audience ever for an Academy Awards telecast at the time. 2018 delivered the previous smallest viewership tally with 26.5 million viewers.
Hollywood doesn’t seem to be getting the message.
BREAKING: Oscars ratings crash to an all-time low, down a staggering 58% on last year’s Awards (which was also an all-time low.) As I feared, the woke brigade may have now destroyed the biggest, glitziest event in showbusiness.

How’s all that incessant, insufferable woke, depressing lecturing via film, interviews, social media & at the actual, awful awards show going, Hollywood?

What is it going to take for these pampered liberal celebrities to learn their lesson?
