A Christmas Story Live Gets Roasted On An Open Fire By Twitter — While The Greatest Showman's 'Live Commercial' Falls Flat!

It looks like Fox shot its eye out by turning A Christmas Story into a live TV musical.

The network's retelling of the beloved holiday classic proved to be the gift that no one asked for. Not only was the three-hour telecast blasted on social media, it drew ratings that will have execs washing their mouths out with soap.

A Christmas Story was seen by a mere 4.5 million viewers and delivered a 1.5 rating among adults aged 18-49, making it the lowest rated of live TV musicals since NBC's A Sound of Music Live in 2013.

Ratings wise, Sunday night's production paled in comparison to Fox's production of Grease Live last year — which garnered 12.2 million viewers with a 4.3 rating — as well as NBC's critically panned Peter Pan Live in 2014, which took in 9.2 million viewers with a 2.4 rating.

The ever-vociferous critics on Twitter weren't too kind either. Users slammed the production as "a dumpster fire" and "the worst thing to ever air on television."

Twas a night of plagued live performances all around, apparently, as even history's first "live commercial" left viewers underwhelmed.

During A Christmas Story's commercial break, Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, and Zendaya performed a live number from The Greatest Showman and… well, we'll let the video speak for itself:

FOX has announced the next two live musicals following the success of Grease Live!

First up is Rent, which Fox will put on in celebration of its 20th anniversary!

OMG we can't believe it either!

Then, during the holiday season — up against rival NBC's production of Bye Bye Birdie — Fox will bring out the big guns, of the Red Ryder BB variety, with a live version of A Christmas Story The Musical!

Perez Reviews: A Christmas Story The Musical

Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who adapted the film into a musical back in 2012 (and went on to create the PHENOMENAL Dear Evan Hansen), will write all new songs for the TV production!

Marc Platt, who won an Emmy for producing the network's acclaimed version of Grease, will coproduce both shows.

No dates have been announced yet, but expect casting announcements soon, especially on Rent.

Are YOU stoked for Fox's next live musicals??

A Christmas Story is not only a brilliant movie, but it also has timeless advice!

Like be careful with a BB gun or you might shoot your eye out!

But, the most essential piece of knowledge it dropped was to never stick your tongue to a pole when the weather is freezing.

However, an Easthampton, Massachusetts middle school student was either not aware of this cardinal rule or he was trying to copy that famous scene as he had to be rescued by firefighters last Wednesday around 8am after his tongue got stuck to a pole!

Luckily the child AND his tongue are in good shape!

Here's what fire chief David Mottor said:

Sarah Jessica Parker's Twins Bundle Up For A Snowy Walk To School!

sarah jessica parker twins wear extra layers on snowy walk to school

Sarah Jessica Parker must be a BIG fan of A Christmas Story, because she has her twins more bundled up than Ralphie's little bro, Randy!!

Marion and Tabitha enjoyed yet another snowy walk to school in New York and once again proved they were ready for whatever momma nature could throw at them as they wore a few extra layers!

The two cuties once again looked adorable in their matching outfits, and they somehow managed to fight the urge to start another snowball fight! We're guessing it had something to do with the fact that SJP was watching them VERY carefully!

That, or they were having trouble moving their arms just like Randy was! LOLz!!

Ch-ch-check out their uncanny resemblance to Ralphie's little bro …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
