The ratings for the Oscars remain low by their usual standards.
The 2022 Oscars had 15.4 million viewers.
This is up from last year’s Oscars but still the second lowest-rated ever.
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, thatâ€™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 yearâ€™s pandemic protocols hybrid affair, the real goal was to get the numbers up to help justify the Disney-owned networkâ€™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.
