Tonys rat­ings near all-time low

Los Angeles Times - - CALENDAR - — Stephen Battaglio

The CBS tele­cast of the 69th Tony Awards on Sun­day pulled an av­er­age au­di­ence of 6.35 mil­lion view­ers, down 10% from last year, ac­cord­ing to the fast na­tional rat­ings from Nielsen.

The rat­ings for the live cer­e­mony hosted by Alan Cum­ming and Kristin Chenoweth are close to the all­time low for the Tonys, which was 6 mil­lion in 2012. Fi­nal num­bers will be is­sued Tues­day. Among view­ers ages 18 to 49, the de­mo­graphic pre­ferred by ad­ver­tis­ers, the tele­cast earned a 0.9 rat­ing.

While the Tony Awards tele­cast has never been a rat­ings block­buster, it faced for­mi­da­ble com­pe­ti­tion this year, with the sec­ond game of the NBA Fi­nals on ABC and “Game of Thrones” on HBO.
