CBS’ broadcast of the Tony Awards didn’t live up to last year’s ratings, even though the show didn’t have to compete with the NBA Finals this time around. It was a pretty quiet night all around on the broadcast networks, in fact, particularly in the adults 18-49 demographic. ABC’s “Secret Millionaire” and “Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition” grabbed the top demo numbers for the night.

CBS did lead Sunday in viewers, averaging 6.5 million and a 4.2 rating/7 share in households. NBC (5.3 million, 3.4/6) came in second, beating out ABC’s 4.9 million viewers and 3.1/5. A night of reruns on FOX averaged 2.75 million viewers and a 1.6/3.

ABC topped the 18-49 rankings, albeit with a scant 1.4 rating. NBC, 1.3, and FOX, 1.2, were close behind, and CBS brought up the rear at 1.0.
