TV Ratings: Tony Awards Viewership on CBS Plummets to Less Than 3 Million Viewers
After almost a two-year hiatus, the Tony Awards came back, but the siren song of Broadway’s biggest and best wasn’t enough to draw a large TV audience.

The 9-11 p.m. portion of the Tony Awards that aired on CBS tanked, drawing only 2.62 million viewers per Nielsen’s time-adjusted and corrected Live+Same Day fast overnights and scoring just an 0.4 rating in the key 18-49 demographic. For comparison, the 2019 awards ceremony hosted by “Late Late Show’s” James Corden scored a 0.8 rating in the key demo and fell below 6 million total viewers with just under 5.5 million tuning in — and that was an all-time, five-year low.

The Tony Awards are typically held in early June at the end of the Broadway season. The presentation of honors for the 2019-2020 Broadway season were delayed more than a year because of pandemic concerns and the historic shuttering of Broadway.
