Allison Williams News Archive
This is bad news for the actress.
NBC's Peter Pan Live! was met with mixed reviews, and some very disappointing ratings, which means that the execs aren't happy at all.
Last year, the live musical of Sound of Music pulled in 18 million viewers, but this year there were only 9.2 million, despite having more press than their previous live musical.
And they want to blame Allison Williams, but can't because of her pops Brian Williams.
The show is already done now, but next year, they say they're looking for someone with more star power than Allison has, like Carrie Underwood did.
Though, the one exec who spoke on-the-record, NBC's entertainment chief Bob Greenblatt, felt the opposite way. He said
Allison Williams did such an amazing job in Peter Pan Live! on Thursday, that we completely forgot how nervous she must have been performing in front of millions of viewers.
And while she didn't show anything but Peter's feisty spirit on camera, after the show, she had an emotional moment with her entire cast and crew!
