Oscars ratings up ... but still way down

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

Early estimates indicate that the Oscars' TV ratings actually went up for this year's telecast last night -- but that's not saying much.

A full accounting will be ready later today, but preliminary numbers show a 6 percent uptick from last year's show. But that means last night's show is still among the bottom three least-watched Oscars ever.

Last year and in 2003, when "Chicago" won best picture before 33 million viewers, are the low-water marks for the annual show.

New York, Chicago and Los Angeles were the markets with the highest Oscar ratings Sunday.
