RATINGS RAT RACE: Tony Awards Hit Low

There is not much to say when a repeat tops the primetime ratings for the broadcast networks. That was the case last night when a rerun of Fox’s Family Guy (1.6/4) finished the night as No. 1 among adults 18-49, edging ABC’s originals Secret Millionaire (1.5/5) and Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition (1.5/4), which both matched their modest season premieres from last week as well as an America’s Got Talent repeat on NBC at 10 PM. With three hours of originals, ABC (1.4/4) still narrowly won the night in adults 18-49, while CBS (6.5 million) was No. 1 in total viewers.

CBS’ broadcast of the 66th annual Tony Awards (1.0/3) was down 17% from last year — when the awards show was boosted by the sweep for boxoffice hit The Book Of Mormon — to an all-time low for the Broadway awards show. At 7 PM, 60 Minutes averaged a 1.1/4. It was edged by NBC’s Dateline (1.2/4), which was up 20% from last week.
