    13.0! WOW!

  • WN

    TGW adjusted down. I wonder if CBS learned anything useful from this TM/TGW switch.

    After reading the list of new contestants for DWTS 2013 , I looked up American Idols ratings from when Pickler was a contender. Correct me if I’m wrong. But AI used to command audiences of 20-30 million in its heyday. This years Oscars with all the hoopla , ( seven hours of broadcasting) and Seth McFarland drew way less than half of Carrie Undrwood’s winning night.

  • rich

    I thought this finished at 12:05p on the east?

  • Dennis

    Less than half?? Did Carries winning night attract more than 80 million viewers:S, don’t think so

    @Diane

    During its best season in 2006, American Idol averaged a 12+ rating and 30+ million viewers over the entire season.

    This years Oscars with all the hoopla , ( seven hours of broadcasting) and Seth McFarland drew way less than half of Carrie Undrwood’s winning night.

    However, the 2005 Idol finale where Carrie Underwood won only drew a 12.5 rating and 30.3 million viewers (so less than Sunday’s Oscars).

    Go Go Oscars!!

  • Just Desserts

    I was right!!!

  • Diane

    Mea culpa, To all who corrected me , i’m worng . I read the Red carpet number. really sorry. banging head on keyboard.

  • THE OLD MAN

    I’m confused. All the whinettes were dancing a jig when ST adjusted up to 1.9 on Fri but crying a river over TAR against the 13.0 for the Oscars.

    Kids, go figure!

    @ rich

    I think it was more like 12:15–I turned it off after the Argo crew walked off the stage

    @The Old Man

    They cut to Seth MacFarlane right at 9PM PST/12AM EST and the credits started and his final musical number. Ben Affleck and the Argo people stopped talking almost exactly at midnight. I added 30 minutes to my DVR recording and it stopped right when Affleck finished.

    @ MattR

    Speaking for myself (and of course for rich)–THANX!

  • Keith

    You better adjust Amazing Race up !! Great show !!!!!

  • The End

    @Keith

    Also pure eye candy in HD. The Bora Bora scenery is breath taking :)

  • Mark2

    40 Million!!! Not bad at all.

  • Michael1

    Wow, so Seth MacFarlane kicked Billy Crystal’s arse in the Oscar ratings, and then repeats of his regular shows kicked the collective arses of the remaining competition. Not a bad night.

  • MentalistFan

    I love The Mentalist!!!! It is actually better than Criminal Minds. And MUCH BETTER than Law & Order.
