After the Oscars on Sunday, it was revealed the viewership of the show fell 19% compared to the previous year. Although there could be many reasons why ratings dropped this year, President Donald Trump tweeted the show did poorly because there are no stars anymore, except for himself.
According to Nielsen, the views for the Oscars fell to 26.5 million viewers. Although that may appear to be a steep fall, audiences for all award shows have been down this year.
