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:

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.

This sounds like a great idea!

NBC saw a big dip in ratings for this year's live musical, and it's making them have big plans for next time!

The network's Bob Greenblatt already announced that they had a deal for the Music Man, but now details are coming out that The Wizard Of Oz story may actually be their next choice!

[ Video: Brian Williams Applaud's A Six-Year-Old Boy's Amazing Peter Pan Live! Review! ]

Greenblatt made the announcement at the TCA press tour on Friday, saying that The Wiz was hot in 2013, but the network eventually nixed the idea for their dramatic straight-to-series order.

But now the idea is back on the table in the form of a musical!

Would you rather see The Wiz or Music Man next holiday season???
