Oscars Ratings Fall to Four Year Low in Early 2015 Numbers

The show brought in a 25.0 household rating, which is down 10 percent from last year’s ceremony, according to Entertainment Weekly.

The 25.0 rating means that 25 percent of all television equipped households in the country were tuned in to the show.

Neil Patrick Harris hosted the Oscars and had many memorable moments, including when he stripped down to his tighty whities!

    Why? Just why? aarrgh

  • Sandy McFarlane

    last years oscars were way better anyway, ellen degeneres was hilarious

  • Bildo

    I felt guilty the whole time. Oppressing all those people.

  • Sherhona

    If ABC had streamed the show everywhere online, not just the in 10 cities or whatever then a lot of people might have tuned in. Instead people who didn’t have cable nor lived in the cities with online streaming available just switched to other channels and watched something else. ABC has nobody to blame but themselves.

    NPH was boring

  • nani

    Boring.

  • bbm

    the underwear thing was completely unnecessary

  • jamswithjam

    White Grandpa Awards failed this year? SHOCKING.

  • Sharis

    No Brad and Angelina = no interest.

  • Cheryl Army

    I was expecting way better than that… NPH was boring and some of the jokes were actually bad :/ Ellen was exceptional last year, it’s hard to top that!

  • Rivera

    He was a terrible host.

  • Bwest

    This year the audience that attended was lower than last year!The show was boring, uncreative and with few attractions that commotion or did someone want to attend next year!The choice of Harris as host was a bad mistake!And even invited to submit it looked like they were so bored, tired, drunk or curmudgeons!Ben Affleck and Sean Peen would win the Oscar for bad mood easy!The party wasn’t a total disaster because of John Legend and common that raised the public with the moving song of Selma and Julie Andrews, who robbed the party of lady Gaga when she came on stage, fascinating!
    Lacked glamour and grace in the whole show, lacked creativity in the choice of Academy presenters, lacked sensitivity when they didn’t mention Joan Rivers between “In memoriam” lacked elegance to presenter Harris actually the show left many flaws which if uncorrected will amaze the audience even more!Come back to us, Ellen, please!

    Too bad every second presenter was black , so many black presenters thought it was the BET awards.

    Glory song and win , thought Jess Jackson come give a sermon so contrived and the fake crying , pathetic.

    And why it that fat cow Oprah at every Oscar’s now , she’s not a movie star , hogging all the air time.

    Last year Jennifer Lawrence , Brad and Angelina, Leo DiCaprio and movies people actually watched , besides American Sniper and everyone knew hollywood wouldn’t vote for it so why watch, besides boring host .

    First male gay host boring as fu-k.

    If Hollywood wants to nominate movies no one cares about and make the show about gays , blacks and millionare women whining about more money , viewership going to get smaller & smaller.

    There were no real stars, all the movies except American Sniper were boring or pretentious and no watched them.

    The musical acts nominated were boring, unpopular songs, last year they had U2 hit the year before that Adele.
    Many popular movies had very good critical acclaim that could have been nominated but weren’t.

    There no real stars nominated besides Bradly Cooper .
    JLO , Oprah, Jennifer Anstion these aren’t stars who have hit movies, these are b listed celebrities but the camera was always on them.

    And many in America are tried of the gay and black agenda, award shows like the Oscar’s have become platforms pushing and demanding victimhood for those two groups and last night they added another victimhood group , women supposedly not equal in America , give me a break

  • Tarun
