Not only did the special starring Queen Latifah and Mary J. Blige charm critics, but it KILLED in the ratings compared to last year's musical Peter Pan Live!

The Wiz averaged a 3.4 rating for adults 18-49 and 11.5 million viewers on Thursday night, while Peter Pan scored a 2.3 rating and 9.1 million viewers!

With The Wiz's talented cast — including the breakout performance of lead star Shanice Williams — we're not surprised people couldn't help but tune in!
