Politically charged Oscars hit all-time low rating, plummet almost 6 million viewers from 2019

For the first time in 47 years, I refused to watch the Oscar Awards. 
There wasn't any film that I found that interesting.  And I don't need Hollywood elites telling me what's a quality film.  Judging by the ratings, I wasn't alone.  
Fox News reports ABC's politically charged Oscar telecast averaged 23.6 million viewers on Sunday night, the smallest audience ever, according to The Hollywood Reporter

THR noted that total was “well below the 29.56 million and 7.7 for last year's awards,” and down 20 percent in year-to-year viewers. The Oscars managed a 5.3 rating in the key demographic of adults age 18-49, down 31 percent from last year’s 7.7 demo rating.

The lengthy, host-less broadcast fell almost 2 million viewers short of the previous all-time low, when the Oscars averaged 26.54 million viewers back in 2018
