The 2018 Oscars was one for the record books — but not for the right reasons. The audience for Sunday’s ceremony, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, dropped to an all-time low of 26.5 million viewers. That’s down nearly 20 percent from last year’s show and the fourth straight year ratings have declined.

The previous all-time low came in 2008 when Jon Stewart hosted.

Fasho Thoughts:

  • Maybe viewers are tired of all the politics surrounding the show.
  • Could it have to do with the show running almost four hours?
  • They tried shortening the boring speeches by giving away a jet ski, but it didn’t help.
  • More people watched the tape-delayed Winter Olympics opening ceremony than this year’s Oscars.
