ITV’s coverage of this year’s Olivier Awards attracted an average audience of 600,000, with figures remaining consistent from last year.
An edited version of the awards ceremony at London’s Royal Albert Hall, which was hosted by Jason Manford, was broadcast after the live event at 10.20pm on April 7.
The viewing figures, averaging 600,000 across the two-hour show, were the same as last year.
However, the 2018 figures were down 40% on 2017, when an average of one million viewers tuned into the programme, which was aired during a prime-time slot (8pm-10pm) two days after the ceremony.
Viewers for this year’s coverage represented a 7.5% share of total audiences, up 1.5% compared to 2018.
This year’s programme competed against Match of the Day 2 on BBC1 and the film Gone Girl on BBC2.
