So what does it mean?
“Arguably a more targeted audience than most award shows, the Tony’s still drew a massive social audience and was the number one trending topic on Twitter and Facebook that night,” Stat Social’s Audrey Hungerman told Cynopsis. “Both hosts were popular with the audience; 22.5% favored Kristin Chenoweth (#6 celebrity overall) and were 54x more likely to be a fan of Alan Cumming. These were also CBS fans: 69% like shows that air (or previously aired) on CBS, including How I Met Your Mother and the Late Show with David Letterman.” Check out the infographic at
