Wow! Seth MacFarlane beat out Billy Crystal?!
Now why do we feel like Jennifer Lawrence had more to do with it than him? ;)
The early numbers are in and last night's telecast of the Oscars came in strong. With the overnight score up 4% from last year, the ratings were at a six-year high averaging a 26.6 household rating/41 share in Nielsen's metered markets from 8:30 p.m. to midnight ET.
That makes it the best show since 2007, with only Crystal close to his record.
Yeah, it makes for a better Oscars when Anne Hathaway is in the audience instead of on the stage … unless she is singing, presenting, accepting or hosting solo. (Are you catching our drift here???)
