Home Television Tony Awards Ratings Lowest in History of Show, Down 25% from Last...

So all that JLO and Josh Groban stuff didn’t work. The Tony Awards were down 25% last night from last year, the lowest ratings ever for the telecast. Lack of a star host was the issue, as Alan Cumming and Kristen Chenoweth were fun, but had no pull.


Total viewers were just over 6 million– that’s not a lot of eyes. I do remember thinking that when the ballet scene started from “An American in Paris,” a lot of people must be tuning out. They were.

NBA Finals, Game 2, had 15.65 million viewers. Next year, Hugh Jackman please come back. Neil Patrick Harris, all is forgiven.

Share and Enjoy !
