The Academy Awards always makes the Top 100 -- until 2021. "That’s a tremendous fall from grace for the ceremony, which in 2020 was TV’s No. 2 entertainment telecast, with 24.3 million viewers — behind only the post-Super Bowl airing of The Masked Singer," notes Variety. "This year’s plunge to 10.7 million viewers puts it way down on the full list. Besides sports, that means more people watched 21 different episodes of NCIS, nine episodes of FBI, seven episodes of 60 Minutes, five episodes of Yellowstone, four episodes of The Equalizer and one episode each of Law & Order: SVU and Law & Order: Organized Crime than watched the Oscars."
