The 89th annual Academy Awards was broadcast live and seen by millions. In traditional Oscar fashion the event was a star studded affair, boasting A-list celebrities, honored for their work on screen and behind the camera. Despite the glam and fan fare the ratings seem to have slipped for a second year, Variety reporting the 2017 Oscars garnered a 22.4 household rating as well as a 12.7 rating in the advertiser coveted 18-49 viewer demographic. Those numbers compared to 2016’s Oscars ceremony which recorded 23.4 for it’s household rating translated to a total audience of 34.3 million viewers. Final numbers will be available late Monday.
