Although CBS had hoped that this year's Tony Awards presentations would draw bigger-than-usual ratings because of the strong Broadway season and the generally positive reaction to host Neil Patrick Harris's two previous stints, the telecast -- always the lowest-rated of all the network awards telecasts -- dropped to its lowest level yet. The 66th annual affair, dominated by the musical Once , which captured eight awards, including best musical, averaged just 6 million viewers, down 17 percent from last year. It Nevertheless drew the best ratings of the night on network television, save for 60 Minutes , which preceded it with 7.88 million viewers. The Pulitzer Prize-winning play Clybourne Park was voted best play, although Peter and the Starcatcher earned more awards -- five.
