Chris Rock has been offered the opportunity to host the 2023 Oscars by ABC President of Entertainment Craig Erwich, but should he?
Erwich said he was happy with the ratings this year, and he thinks having Chris host next year will increase ratings even more.
Obviously there was a lot of controversy (surrounding this year’s broadcast), which overshadowed a lot of the positive things about the show, but I was really happy with the program. It was the biggest bounce-back of any award show this season.
Translation – I know the Will Smith slap increased our viewership this year, so why not increase our viewership next year by having the person he slapped host the show.
Watch the Hip Hollywood report below:
I believe the incident is too fresh to put Chris Rock back in front of that audience.
