The 2020 Oscars ceremony was watched by the smallest audience the awards show has ever received.
23.6 million viewers tuned in on Sunday night to see "Parasite" sweep to a surprise victory. That's a 20 percent 6 million viewer drop-off from last year. The Academy's second hostless show in a row scored a 5.3 rating among adults 18-49 in the fast national ratings, a 31 percent dip from 2019.
For comparison, last year's Oscars delivered a 7.7 rating in adults 18-49 and 29.6 million viewers. That viewership figure, while up 12 percent from 2018, represented the second smallest audience ever for an Academy Awards telecast at the time. 2018 delivered the previous smallest viewership tally with 26.5 million viewers.
