One would have imagined that the amazing history that South-Korean film, Parasite made at the Oscars earlier this day may have resulted in immense viewership owing to the immense buzz it created would have resulted in the usually falling viewership every year, isn't it?
That's unfortunately not the case though as the viewership of Oscars 2020 has actually fallen to an all-time low of 23.6 million viewers. That’s a 20%, 6 million viewer drop-off from last year. The Academy’s second hostless show in a row scored a 5.3 rating among adults 18-49 in the fast national ratings, a 31% dip from 2019.
For comparison, last year’s Oscars delivered a 7.7 rating in adults 18-49 and 29.6 million viewers. That viewership figure, while up 12% from 2018, represented the second smallest audience ever for an Academy Awards telecast at the time. 2018 delivered the previous smallest viewership tally with 26.5 million viewers.
The Oscars 2020 is still the most watched awards show of the season however, beating the Grammys by just under 5 million viewers and the Globes by 5.3 million.
