CBS broadcast the Tonies (the Broadway equivalent of the Oscars) on Sunday, June 2, and the ratings were the lowest ever. I wonder whether CBS will just give up in future years and turn the whole thing over to PBS, which already broadcasts the first hour of the three-hour show. Not that I can blame anyone for skipping the show. It's probably unreasonable to expect most viewers to care about New York theater when most of them aren't likely to get here to see the shows (and many wouldn't go even if they came). Still, I enjoyed seeing the turnout at Radio City Music Hall, particularly coming in a season when, for a time after 9/11, Broadway wasn't sure how it would survive. The show itself was somewhat rushed and breathless, because one of its main functions is to serve as an advertisement for the nominated musicals, each of which presents a big number. That barely leaves enough time for the awards presentations. For a complete list of winners (and links to the nominations), go here. M.
