NBC's Ratings Are Alive With 'The Sound Of Music'

December 12th, 2013 8:20pm EST
'The Sound of Music Live!'
Whoa. NBC had the top two programs last week, and one of them wasn’t sports or “Voice”-related. This is new.

The network’s experiment of bringing live TV musicals back was a huge success. “The Sound of Music Live!” ranked second for the week with 18.6 million viewers. While the production got mixed reviews (mostly due to Carrie Underwood’s acting), viewers tuned in to see what all the fuss was about. NBC has already committed to keep the live musical franchise going next year.

Otherwise, it was the usual suspects: Sunday Night Football on NBC was tops, and CBS did well with ‘The Big Bang ...

Reliving 'The Sound of Music Live!' (Review)

December 6th, 2013 10:07pm EST
The Sound of Music Live
Although The Sound of Music is not my favorite musical of all time (or even in the top 20), I was beyond excited to see that NBC was reviving the live televised musical. If this was successful, other musicals would surely get adaptations. Of course, it’s NBC so the likelihood of it being successful was not great. Plus, the casting was questionable. Carrie Underwood as Maria? The role doesn’t really lend itself to a country twang. Stephen Moyer of all people as the handsome Captain Von Trapp? Lord no. But I’m willing to give it a chance, especially since some of my favorite Broadway voices a...
