Oscars 2012 Ratings Up From Last Year

The ratings for this year’s Academy Awards are in – and it’s slightly higher than last year’s.

Nearly 39.3 million viewers tuned in for Sunday night’s big award show hosted by Billy Crystal, up 4 percent from 2011.

EW also notes that the “program out-delivered three of the past four Oscars telecasts and ranked as ABC’s most-watched program in two years.”

The 2012 Grammy Awards, however, drew a slightly larger audience for CBS earlier this month, most likely “boosted by the death of Whitney Houston.”
