The Sound Of Music LIVE was Do-Re-Mi-Fa-So-La-Ti-Dough for NBC's ratings bank!

The three-hour stage performance of the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical delivered a whopping 18.5 million viewers—which was NBC's highest rated Thursday night non-sporting event ever!

Carrie Underwood and Stephen Moyer's portrayal of Fraulein Maria and Captain Von Trapp captured the classic story and provided enjoyment for people that don't usually experience live theater on the reg!

We have a feeling this whole holiday theatrical event will be a reoccurring theme in years to come!

Bravo!

    This show should NOT have been live. It's very hard to sing AND act live. Carrie clearly sacrificed the acting for the singing. I doubt the original cast would have been better going for 3 hours straight.

    it was a dumb move to have this live. It would have been A LOT better otherwise. Even the best actors look horrible live. The production and acting seems off to the public who are used to seeing acting with multiple takes.

    HELLO TARDS–This is what theatre is. IT"S LIVE!!!, If you can't handle it DON"T do it. It wasn't the fact is was "Live' that made it awful, it's the fact they had a talentless cast.
