Feb 27 (Reuters) - ABC’s broadcast of The 89th Academy Awards on Sunday night drew a 22.4 overnight rating, according to Nielsen data released by the Walt Disney Co unit.
The 22.4 rating is down 4 percent from last year’s show, which ended up translating to 34.4 million, the third-lowest rated since 1974.
ABC will release viewership numbers later on Monday. (Reporting by Tim Baysinger; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
