The 2020 Tony Awards Are Finally Happening, But on Paramount+ Instead of CBS

The broadcaster will instead host a live salute to Broadway's return

ViacomCBS is ready to dodge the declining ratings bullet when it comes to awards shows during the pandemic. The 2020 Tony Awards are finally set to take place on Sunday, Sept. 26 at 7 p.m., but the ceremony honoring the best of the the 2019-2020 Broadway season will stream exclusively on Paramount+ instead of CBS, its longtime home.
