Canvs Infographic: How Viewers Reacted to the Tony’s

By Karen Fratti Comment

Last weekend’s Tony Awards topped the Nielsen Social ratings, but Canvs, which analyzes TV-related tweets, knows how people reacted. They source from Nielsen for every new and live English-language show on US television from three hours before, during, and three hours after an episode’s initial broadcast, local time.

Canvs tells us that:

Actresses stole the show at this year’s Tonys, so we almost didn’t notice reactions to the hosts. Though they certainly proved their status as triple threats, hosts Kristin Chenoweth and Alan Cumming only accounted for 3% of total reactions to the 69th Annual Tony Awards. Last year’s host, Hugh Jackman, inspired more than 6% of reactions. Chenoweth and Cumming are certainly Broadway royalty, but it seems the allure of the Wolverine proved a stronger draw.
