An estimated 43 million people watched the Academy Awards. That audience is the largest for the show in a decade and makes the Oscars the most popular entertainment event on television since the "Friends" finale in 2004. The Nielsen company said Monday that Oscar viewership was up for the third straight year and is considered yet another example of how social media is helping to drive up the ratings for big television events. The Oscars last year were seen by 40.4 million people. Ellen DeGeneres was the host of the Academy Awards for a second time, replacing the edgy Seth MacFarlane, who had the job last year.
