Certain critics may have groused about last night’s Oscars, but preliminary ratings have the broadcast up about 6% from last year. The rise, however, comes off an all-time low last year, so the broadcast may still be among the three lowest rated ever. Still, the odds are that much higher for more show tunes next year.
Meanwhile, there was an inquiry in this morning’s While I Was Out post about Dollhouse’s second-outing ratings. Well, they were down, about 15%. On the other hand, that’s more or less typical for a second episode of a new series. On the other other hand, the first episode’s ratings were awfully weak.
