And for once, it's not because of the skank factor!
Despite those semi-topless promo pics, viewership for the Miss Universe pageant was down 10% from last year's ratings, hitting an all-time Nielson low!
Only 6 million viewers tuned into the pageant, bringing in a 1.9 preliminary rating among adults 18-49.
Yikes! Are they even gonna bother to televise it next year?!
