The 83rd Academy Awards was down a 12% from last year with adults 18-49 and down a bit with viewers too. But while perhaps not as young and hip as ABC and the Academy had hoped for, it was more than enough to easily win the week with both adults 18-49 and total viewers.

NCIS was the week's top scripted show with adults 18-49, just edging out Glee (rounded to only a tenth of a ratings point the two shows were tied, but NCIS had 57,000 more viewers age 18-49). NCIS was also the week's top scripted show with total viewers.
