You just couldn't stay away, could you tweens?

The numbers are in for the Oscar telecast last night and the ratings are exactly what the execs could have hoped for. The numbers went up 20% from last year, averaging an approximate 27.4 rating/41 share in the overnights from 8:30 p.m. -11:30 p.m.

But that's not all!

Miz Barbara Walters has something to celebrate as well this morning as her final Oscar special had a MASSIVE ratings score that was up 58% from the previous year!

Sure you want to walk away from this gig, Babs? Clearly, everyone still loves you!

    awww shit the only time in my life i decide to actually watch the oscars is the only time they put more tweens in? i certainly didnt watch the oscars because miley or kstew or whatever her name is was in it. I just turned it on for background noise while i was on my computer now i wish i didnt watch it

    Stunt casting? I only saw 4 "young" actors on the entire show.

    Why would anyone want to watch a bunch of rich Jews kissing each other's asses over and over? They may as well start giving rim jobs onstage next year. Pathetic.

    I remember the days when the Oscars were getting 80+ million viewers. I know technically the final numbers arent in and alas New Yorkers weren't able to see them but still

    Get the scoop from GenerationGossip.com

    I'm only in my 30s but was disappointe by all the young kids there for no reason other than an obvious attempt to draw the tween crowd. Why can't the tweens go to the MTV awards and the People's Choice awards? Leave the Oscars CLASSY! PLEASE!

    By the way, nothing against Taylor Lautner and Kristin Stewart but they were friggin' AWFUL!! I've seen cardboard stand-ups at the movies with more personality than they had. I literally felt bad for them. They truly looked foolish.

    The ONLY highlite of the worst oscar show EVER was sandra bullock winning for best actress, other than that it looked like it was put together in a few hours the lighting, music and what was that "intrepretative dance" all about?? boring.

    Re: Indrid Cold – The young actors that went there belong to Hollywood just as much as the old ones, and they were all classy I won't deny Kristen was very "nervous" when she presented but she wasn't not classy, she looked very elegant and happy at the afterparty.

    Re: tiffster – There have been a lot of Oscars way more boring than this one, I really enjoyed it a lot! :) But last year was definitely better though, Hugh Jackman was amazing!
