The Oscars viewership increased by 56%! Wonder why? LOL


“The 94th Annual Academy Awards saw a substantial jump in ratings after last year’s record-low viewership.

The Oscars brought in 56% more viewers in 2022 than they did in 2021, with an average of 15.3 million viewers tuning into the ABC telecast Sunday, according to Nielsen numbers obtained by CNN.

Last year, about 10 million viewers watched the telecast, marking the lowest year ever for ratings. Despite the ratings boost, this year’s Oscars are the second-least-watched telecast in the awards show’s history, according to CNN.”
