Olivier Awards On ITV Late

What will 10.45pm on ITV on a Sunday night actually achieve in terms of viewing figures?

I think ITV's South Bank Show used to get Sunday evening awards broadcast at about 10pm, perhaps because awards got awarded to people writing books, making films, performing music, appearing in plays etc., rather than just one medium.

It surprises me that this would make it dropworthy. Over 900k represents well over twenty times the capacity of the entire West End and is a respectable figure for something that doesn't have mainstream appeal. I wouldn't have anticipated it being that high in the first place.

Its live on BBC radio now. Sheridan is just waking them up.
Followed by Will Young and the Cabaret team.
Its sounding pretty good so far.
Shame the award nominations are mostly a luvvie fest.
Telling too that the first two singing acts can't be seen anywhere currently singing in the West End.

Whoever is reading out the nominations can't possibly really speak like that can they? Sounds like Felicity Kendall badly, and very slowly, impersonating the Queen.

It's inevitable though. You can't have an annual awards without having nominated shows which are already closed.
