Hamilton Brings Big Ratings to the 2016 Tony Awards

June 13th, 2016 | By Staff

Hot shows are gold for Tony Awards ratings, so the annual Broadway trophy-fest got a big boost from Hamilton this year. In fact, overnight ratings for the 2016 Tony Awards show a 35% bump from last year’s numbers, and the highest overall viewership since 2001, which theater fans tuned in to get a peek at another buzzed-about musical, The Producers.

The CBS live telecast reached 8.7 million viewers, averaging a 6.8/11 in overnight metered markets, up from 6.5 million and 5.1/8 for the 2015 Tony Awards, the least-watched telecast in the show’s history. The Tonys also earned a 1.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic, up 60% from last year.
