The Oscars Dipped Over 50% In Ratings From Last Year

The official ratings for the 2021 Oscars have been revealed and while historic in many ways, the ratings didn’t mirror that.

According to Variety, via the Nielsen Live+Same Day preliminary national numbers, the ceremony averaged just 9.85 million viewers.

That is equal to a 58% drop from the 2020 ceremony held in February of last year.

In addition, The Oscars scored just a 1.9 rating among adults 18-49 in the fast national ratings, which is a 64.2% drop from 2020.

Many award shows in the recent years have been on a decline, and The Oscars was not spared.

In comparison to years past, the 2020 show drew a 5.3 rating and brought in about 23.6 million viewers. In 2019, it was a 7.7 rating with 29.6 million viewers.
