CBS’ broadcast of The 70th Annual Tony Awards delivered the Broadway celebration’s largest audience since 2001, according to Nielsen preliminary Live+SD numbers for Sunday. The ceremony averaged 8.73 million (up 35 percent from 6.46 million last year), 1.6 A18-49 (up 60 percent from 1.0) and 2.0 among A25-54 (up 54 percent from 1.3).

Nicole Kidman, who just wrapped production on HBO limited series Big Little Lies opposite Reese Witherspoon, is set to star in another TV project. The Oscar winner will headline the sophomore season of SundanceTV thriller Top of the Lake: China Girl. The story picks up four years after the events of Season 1, as Elisabeth Moss’ Detective Robin Griffin investigates the case of an unidentified body that washes up on Sydney’s Bondi Beach.

Showtime is offering viewers the chance to sample Roadies, the music series from Cameron Crowe, ahead of its linear premiere on Sunday, June 26 at 10p. Consumers who do not subscribe to the network can sample a TV-14 rated version of the show’s debut episode for free on YouTube, Facebook and SHO.com. The pilot is also available for download as a free video podcast on iTunes and across multiple television and streaming providers’ devices, websites and applications and free On Demand channels.

TNT and TBS are teaming with Wattpad, the global multiplatform entertainment company for original stories, to give the Wattpad community the opportunity to have their stories adapted for the networks. The first project will be The Tales from the Crypt horror block from TNT and executive producer M. Night Shyamalan. “Our partnership with Wattpad is a perfect intersection of content and fan engagement, where fans actually have the chance to directly influence and, in some cases even have their material optioned and developed by our networks,” said Justin Williams, SVP of digital ventures for TNT and TBS. The deal includes access to Wattpad insights and data, which will assist in identifying talent and trends across genres.

The cultural relevance of programming, and its impact on viewership and engagement, has become an increasingly important part of the media consumption conversation. What’s hitting the right note right now, and why, according to TruthCo.? Here’s the branding and insight firm’s "cultural take": "We’ve been recommending Ali Wong’s hilarious Netflix special, Baby Cobra. The Fresh Off the Boat writer appears on stage seven months pregnant and makes no effort to hide it; instead, she wears a tight dress and uses her pregnant body as a powerful prop in her extremely filthy comedy. The special is a slap in the face to traditional visions of race and motherhood, reflecting a cultural moment receptive to raw perspectives on mothering as expectations of what a typical female experience looks like are being reframed."
