“The Sound of Music Live!” Starring Carrie Underwood, Soared To #1

The Sound of Music Live! - Season 2013

Six-time GRAMMY® winner Carrie Underwood took on the starring role of Maria in last night’s three-hour television production, The Sound of Music Live!, based on the original musical, and fans tuned-in en masse for the special event, with 18.5 million viewers solidifying a #1 primetime win for NBC across all half hours of the broadcast.

The Sound of Music Live! dominated the night, delivering NBC’s best 18-49 non-sports Thursday ratings average since the 2009 series finale of ER, and also earning NBC its best non-sports Thursday rating in total viewers since the Frasier season finale in 2004.

The Sound of Music Live! not only ranked #1 primetime in all 56 Nielsen-metered markets, but also became the first show since May of 2012 to surpass The Big Bang Theory in P2+ ratings.

Also starring TV and theater star Stephen Moyer and Tony Award winners Audra McDonald, Christian Borle and Laura Benanti, The Sound of Music Live! will be released on DVD on December 17.

“The Sound of Music” — Music from the NBC Television Event was released earlier this week from Sony Masterworks, featuring studio recordings for all of the musical numbers performed by the cast in the live broadcast, including such Rodgers & Hammerstein favorites as “My Favorite Things,” “Do-Re-Mi,” and the classic title track.

    I know there are many critics out there that didn’t like it or parts of it or what ever. I understood from the bigging Carrie wasn’t trying to out do Julie Andrews. I read where it wasn’t involving the movie but the Broadway play. No matter what Carrie was awesome and the cast of people in the performance were great. Carrie is such a role model for country music, for acting and for just trying to do some thing that her fans might enjoy seeing her do. Maybe this will open other doors for her in the future. No matter what I will always be a CARRIE UNDERWOOD FAN. She is #1
