Preliminary Oscars ratings down for US

New York -  Preliminary Oscars ratings from the biggest US markets are down 7% from 2010.

The Nielsen Co said Sunday's Academy Awards telecast, where The King's Speech was the big winner, suffered a drop in the ratings from last year.

Nielsen didn't immediately have an estimate on how many people watched the show overall; that was expected later on Monday. Last year's Oscars ceremony was watched by 41.7 million people.

Despite the overall dip, Nielsen said ratings among the 18 to 49-year-old demographic was down only 2%. The Oscars brought young actors James Franco and Anne Hathaway on as hosts to appeal to a younger audience.
