The Tony Awards were watched by 7.05 million viewers, according to preliminary reports by Deadline Hollywood. The number has held fairly steady for the last few years, with 7.3 million in 2014 and 7.24 million in 2013 and 6.01 million in 2012.
In the demographic of adults 18-49, however, The Tony Awards earned a preliminary 0.9, down 25 percent from last year’s preliminary 1.2 rating.
Figures for 2015 will be updated and finalized later this week.
"On a night coming off what was a ratings slam dunk and a nail-biter of a NBA Finals Game 1 on June 4 and the anticipation of Game 2, the Tonys held their own and were basically steady with last year’s MM results," the online magazine wrote.
