The Sound Of Music, Peter Pan, The Wiz, and now… Hairspray!

Fresh off of Mary J. Blige & Co.'s production of The Wiz LIVE! back in December, it's now confirmed that NBC's live stage show for 2016 will be Hairspray!

Craig Zadan and Neil Meron will return as executive producers having worked on the previous three live events, and we're hoping they just continue to improve.

The Wiz Live Soared Above Peter Pan Live In The Ratings — But Neither Came Close To THIS TV Musical!

no title

Anna Kendrick wasn't the only one who tuned in to watch NBC's The Wiz Live!

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!

Neither broadcast came close to 2013's The Sound of Music Live starring Carrie Underwood! Broadcast TV's first live musical in years scored a 4.6 rating and a whopping 18.6 million viewers!

We'll see if Fox can take on that ratings benchmark when Grease: Live takes the stage on January 31!

NBC Execs Are Upset With The Peter Pan Live! Ratings… Because Of Allison Williams???

no title

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 May Have Flown, But Peter Pan Live! Sunk! See The HUGELY Disappointing First Ratings HERE!

If it takes happy thoughts to fly, we doubt NBC executives are going to have an easy time getting off the carpet today.

After the wild success of The Sound Of Music Live! last year we're guessing they thought Peter Pan Live! would be just as magical.

Unfortunately, like Christopher Walken, the musical was not quite able to hit that high note.

Whereas Carrie Underwood and company climbed every mountain to the tune of a 10.9/18 share (roughly 18.67 million individual viewers), Peter Pan was only able to grab
