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!

All around, nicely done!

It may have had its share of sarcastic reactions on Twitter, but last night's The Wiz Live! generally lived up to — and probably even exceeded — expectations as far as theater on live TV is concerned!

Sure, Toto was missing after the first scene (not cool!), but besides that, the three-hour show was crisp, fun, and dazzling with some spectacular performances and an all-around strong, original version of the classic tale of Wizard Of Oz!

Found off an open casting call, Shanice Williams dazzled as Dorothy, and Entertainment Weekly thought she made the perfect main character:

NBC did it again with another live, televised production of a broadway classic! Plenty of celebs were cast in the highly-publicized production, including Uzo Aduba as Glinda the Good Witch, Mary J. Blige as the Wicked Witch of the West, Ne-Yo as the Tin Man, and Queen Latifah as The Wiz.

And while it seems like at least half of Hollywood starred in the show, spectator celebs like Andy Cohen and Kristin Chenoweth took to Twitter to sound off on how their peers — and newcomer Shanice Williams — did in the musical!

Who says you need a heart to be a judge on The Voice?

Pretty much every small town singer with pipes dreams of auditioning for the hit singing competition — but we think Dorothy Gale takes the cake!

In a new promo for NBC's upcoming The Wiz Live, the Kansas native (played by Shanice Williams) moves one of the judges to tears in her blind audition!

Video: See Uzo Aduba, Queen Latifah, & Amber Riley In The Wiz Sneak Peek!

But unfortunately, that judge turns out to be the Tin Man (Ne-Yo) who rusts up when he cries!

It's a good thing the other judges — including Elijah Kelley's Scarecrow and David Alan Grier's Cowardly Lion — gave positive feedback as well!

Check out the promo (below) and watch The Wiz Live December 3 at 8 p.m. EST on NBC!

We can't wait to follow this yellow brick road!

There's less than a month until NBC airs its annual live musical, and these sneak peeks just keep getting better and better.

While we've gotten a look at what some of the stars of The Wiz Live! will be wearing on Dec. 3, Monday's all-new trailer for the stage production shows off what we can expect from the cast's more famous stars.

Photos: Relive The Best Moments From Peter Pan Live!

We're talking almost every main character — from Uzo Aduba and Amber Riley's Good Witches to Queen Latifah's titular Wiz.

In fact, Mary J. Blige's Wicked Witch of the West is the only person we've yet to see, so they must be saving the wickedest for last!

This is shaping up to be so much bigger than Sound of Music and Peter Pan and we could not be more excited.

Ch-ch-check out our latest look at The Wiz Live! before it airs Thursday, Dec. 3 at 8 p.m. EST on NBC (above)!!!
