National Ratings Rocky for Oscars

Despite an uptick in the initial overnight metered market ratings (which tallies viewers in large markets), the Oscars nationally drew 2 million viewers less than last year's show.

Meaning? Big cities were drawn to Chris Rock, but he didn't play in Peoria.

It remains to be seen if he'll be asked back, but the signs aren't good. Critics generally judged his performance to be a disappointment, and the lower ratings definitely don't help.

1 other geekspeak:

  • Now, now, make sure you post the ACCURATE ratings...as Chris Rock did pull in more viewers in the 18 to 34 year old group.
