The Oscars Had A Good Night! Best Telecast Since 2007!

Filed under: TV NewsOscarsSeth MacFarlaneBilly Crystal

oscars 2013 ratings up

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???)

Halle Berry Cancels Oscars Appearance!

Filed under: AwardzHalle BerryOscars

halle-berry-cancels-oscar-appearance.jpg

Aww!

Halle Berry has canceled her appearance at tonight's Oscars telecast due to her broken foot.

The actress injured herself while shooting her upcoming film Cloud Atlas in Spain a couple months, but it still hasn't completely healed.

She's been seen walking around with crutches and a cast, but we didn't know it was this bad.

We're just hoping her cancelation has nothing to do with her latest baby daddy drama!

Hope you feel better, Halle! You will be missed.

ABC's The Chew Reaches A Series High In The Ratings!

the chew hits series and weekly high

We're glad to hear it! We've been rooting for this show ever since Mario Batali broke that bed last month! Ha!

Last week, ABC's The Chew reached a weekly AND series high in the ratings thanks to its Christmas episode featuring DWTS' Maksim Chmerkovskiy!

Thursday's show marked The Chew's #1 telecast to date with 2.77 million total viewers, and it ALSO marked the SECOND consecutive week in which the show delivered its #1 telecast! Wowsa!

Not only that, but thanks to The Chew, ABC was the #1 network across ALL target women demographics!

Looks like the other networks might be biting off more than they CAN CHEW if they try to compete with ABC Daytime!

LOLz!

abc charging lots of money for oscar ads

Looks like ABC's got a lot of faith that you'll bring in the viewers, Billy Crystal!

We've just learned that ABC will be charging advertisers $1.6 to $1.7 million for 30 SECONDS of ad time during the 2012 Oscars!!!

While that seems like a lot, it's

FOX Nabs Rights To 2018, 2022 World Cup Telecast

Filed under: TV NewsBusiness BlitzSoccer

world cup

FOX Sports has beat out ESPN for the rights to televise the 2018 and 2022 FIFA soccer World Cup!

Despite losing the rights to broadcast all English-language FIFA events from 2015 through 2022, including the rights to the women's World Cup in 2015 and 2019, the Disney-owned sports network is still committed to soccer, saying:

"ESPN remains committed to presenting the sport of soccer at the highest level across our platforms with coverage of the UEFA European Football Championship, English Premier League, La Liga, MLS and other top leagues and tournaments, including the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.”

ESPN shouldn't feel to bad for losing the bidding war though. The network can still look forward to insane ratings and money from the 2014 World Cup!

If FOX Sports is anything like their "fair and balanced" counterpart, FOX News, we're sure they will find a way to make sure America looks like a winner in 2018 — regardless of the final score.

ABC Cut Josh Brolin And Javier Bardem Kissing At The Oscars!

abc-cuts-josh-brolin-javier-bardem-kiss-from-the-oscars

Again?! Seriously?!

Come on, guys!

Although the Academy Awards were an absolute snoozefest this year, it apparently didn't deter ABC from cutting one of the only interesting moments from the live telecast — Josh Brolin and Javier Bardem's 'gay kiss!'

When the two men walked out onto the stage at the ceremony, viewers at home only saw them engage in a brief dance before the camera jumped to an extended, awkward shot of Penelope Cruz - and that's because in actuality, the two men - who are actually close friends in real life - shared a little comedic mouth action!

ABC has refused to comment on the issue, and we think that it's frankly pretty shitty! For a network that airs a show like Brothers & Sisters, we have no idea why they continue to censor this sort of thing (anyone remember the Glambert debacle?)

Such an unbelievable shame, especially after the events of this past year. Get it together, guys.

EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL.
