They've got ratings, and they're multiplyin'!
Grease: Live may have captured America's hearts Sunday night, but did the new name in live TV musicals do enough to dethrone its predecessors?
Believe it or not, Julianne Hough, Aaron Tveit, Vanessa Hudgens and the rest of the cast pulled in an impressive 12.18 million viewers — a number practically unheard of for FOX aside from Empire and The X-Files revival.

Unfortunately for the T-Birds and Pink Ladies, however, their 4.3 rating was just a note shy of beating Carrie Underwood's 4.6 for The Sound of Music Live… but that one was critically panned, so we know who the real winner is.
Grease did manage to surpass both of the other NBC musical outings — The Wiz Live and Peter Pan Live – so hopefully this means we get to see Grease 2: Live in the near future!
Do U think Victoria Justice and Ryan McCartan will be able to scare up similar numbers with Rocky Horror Show this December??
