Tonys up over last year on CBS

Posted on

CBS’ telecast of the 67th Annual Tony Awards saw a 20 percent bump in the key demo on Sunday, up from a 1.0 rating/3 share to a 1.2/3 and 7.7 million viewers. But the increase wasn’t enough to boost CBS up to first place in 18-49; that distinction that went to ABC, which aired Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

Granted, the match-up between the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat was down 21 percent from last summer’s Game 2 between Miami and Oklahoma but it still aired a 4.6/13 and averaged 11.5 million viewers. ABC began the night with Jimmy Kimmel Live Game Night (1.9/7) and a pre-game show (1.9/7).

Fox came in third with reruns of its animated comedies. NBC aired repeats of The Voice and America’s Got Talent and came in fourth.
