'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' Scores Second Biggest Audience With Post-Oscars Show


The 'After the Academy Awards' special airing last Sunday draws 5.1 million viewers, up 14 percent from last year's post-Oscars telecast.

"Jimmy Kimmel Live!" got a rating bump with its post-Oscars special. According to Nielsen's True Fast National Ratings, "Jimmy Kimmel Live: After the Academy Awards" which aired Sunday, February 26 lured in 5.1 million total viewers.

It's up 14% from last year's post-Oscars telecast which drew 4.4 million total audience. Ratings wise, this year's "After the Academy Awards" also showed a 8% jump in 18-49 (1.873 million vs. 1.738 million), marking the show's most-watched post-Oscar telecast ever.

Among all "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" telecasts, the seventh post-Oscars special additionally posted the second biggest audience ever and placed behind its post-Super Bowl telecast in 2006.

Last night's "Jimmy Kimmel Live: After the Academy Awards" was star studded with the premiere of a trailer for faux film "Movie: The Movie" which features a bunch of A-listers. Oprah Winfrey stopped by as a guest, while Coldplay served as a musical performer.

Meanwhile, the 84th annual Academy Awards telecast on ABC delivered a total of 39.3 million viewers, up 4% from last year (37.9 million viewers). However, it was flat in the 18-49 demographic with an 11.7 rating.

Reacting to the modest audience, Tom Sherak, the president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, said, "I think that's become the normal." He went on noting that the award-giving telecast faced a stiff competition from NBA All-Star game on TNT.
