2022 Oscar Viewership Second-Lowest Rated in History

Sunday night’s Oscars viewership was the second-lowest rated in history.

According to Deadline, Oscars 2022 only had 15.4 million viewers, a 56% increase from 2021’s abysmal ratings.

Deadline reported:

Moving up a bit from the preliminary data, the 2022 Oscars now is estimated to have had 15.4 million viewers and snagged a rating of 2.9 among adults 18-49.

Apples to apples with the same metrics, that’s a 56% increase in audience over last year and 68% in the important demo. However, even with what looks like big leaps over 2021, the 2022 Oscars are still the second-lowest in history.

Still, coming off the least-watched and lowest-rated Oscars ever from last year’s pandemic protocols hybrid affair, the real goal was to get the numbers up to help justify the Disney-owned network’s $100 million annual license fee it pays out to the long-struggling Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences event.

The 2021 Oscars ended up with around 10.4 million viewers and a rating of 2.1 for its 8-11:10 p.m. ET show.

Three unfunny female ‘comedians’ – including Amy Schumer, the portly, unattractive relative of Chuck Schumer, took jabs at Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for supporting an anti-grooming bill.

Will Smith slapped Chris Rock after he made a joke about his wife’s bald head (although many say it was staged).

Will Smith was later awarded best actor and got a standing ovation from the Hollywood deviants.

If not for the Will Smith-Chris Rock drama, virtually nobody would have known the Oscars were even on Sunday night.
