Sound of Music Live! Brings Big Ratings to NBC

Carrie Underwood

The response to The Sound of Music Live!, particularly Carrie Underwood’s performance, was fairly mixed on social media. But whether they loved it or hated it — people were till tuning in.

The three-hour performance attracted 18.5 million viewers to NBC, the network’s highest, non-sports, Thursday night rating since ER’s finale in 2009. It even tied Thursday’s usual winner, The Big Bang Theory, with a 4.6 ratings in the 18-49 demo.

After the live show, Carrie tweeted several photos with some of her cast mates, and also shared a positive reaction regarding the performance. “Glory to God tonight…I couldn’t be more proud. What a tough thing to pull off and we did it! I am so blessed!!!” she wrote.

Seems like NBC may have caught onto something here…
