Ratings All Time Low For Oscars

From LAT:

The three-plus hour show plunged to a record-low average of 32 million total viewers, according to early figures from Nielsen Media Research.

Look people, if we don’t support this thing – they may not have it again next year. And then where will the tux clad seat fillers go? Where will they go?

But the worst news for academy officials may have come amid the results for young viewers, the demographic most eagerly sought by TV executives. Sunday’s show posted a 10.7 rating in the crucial demographic of adults ages 18 to 49, shedding fully one-quarter of that group compared with last year.

Really? They had Jessica Alba and Miley Cyrus. The only thing missing was Dane Cook hosting and a crunk battle for Best Picture.
