US television network NBC's one-night live revival of the venerable Broadway musical "The Sound of Music" pulled a respectable 18.5 million viewers, but it failed to thrill the critics. Country-pop diva Carrie Underwood starred as Maria von Trapp in the three-hour telecast Thursday that drew more viewers to NBC than to any other network, according to early Nielsen data released Friday. It was also NBC's best showing in more than 10 years in the hotly contested Thursday prime-time slot when rivals CBS, ABC and Fox telecast such popular series as "The Big Bang Theory," "Grey's Anatomy" and "Glee," respectively. Washington Post critic Hank Stuever called it "disappointingly stiff," while Alessandra Stanley in the New York Times faulted Oklahoma-born Underwood, 30, for a "bloodless performance (that) put a damper on the night."
It's no secret that "The Sound Of Music Live!" was a huge success on Thursday night. The three hour special -- starring Stephen Moyer and Carrie Underwood -- brought in 18.5 million viewers, making it the best Thursday in total viewers (excluding sports) for NBC since 2004. And even if viewers didn't tune in, their Twitter feeds were overflowing with commentary from everyone from Cameron Diaz to DiGiorno pizza. Check out the best "Sound Of Music Live!"

NEW YORK (AP) â Whew, that was nerve-wracking, right? All those kids and staircases, pillow fights, candles and dancing. But somehow the cast and crew of NBC's three-hour live telecast of "The Sound of Music" pulled it off Thursday night with only a trodden-on dress, some inconsistent sound levels and a flubbed few words. This was the first time in more than a half-century since a broadcast network dared to mount a full-scale musical for live TV and there seemed to be danger everywhere, making it impossible to stop watching in case one of the von Trapp kids tumbled into
U.S. network NBC's live telecast of the musical "The Sound of Music" played to the tune of 18.5 million viewers, the Comcast Corp-owned broadcaster said on Friday, helping NBC inject some momentum into its entertainment division. The three-hour production on Thursday starring country singer Carrie Underwood as Maria, the would-be nun who falls in love with an anti-Nazi Austrian captain, was NBC's best non-sports draw in the 18 to 49 age group most coveted by advertisers since the finale of hospital drama "ER" in 2009. "The Sound of Music" telecast, which was based on the 1959 stage version of the Rodgers and Hammerstein show rather than the Oscar-winning 1965 film starring Julie Andrews, was the top overall draw on U.S. prime-time TV on Thursday, according to Nielsen figures. NBC has languished at the bottom or near it in overall viewers in recent years, dragged down by poorly rated entertainment offerings compared with rivals CBS, Fox and ABC.
Forty-eight years after the original "Sound Of Music" hit the big screen, Carrie Underwood and Stephen Moyer are getting ready to step into some pretty epic shoes: Maria and Captain von Trapp's. As longtime "Sound Of Music" fans get ready for NBC's live performance, which airs Thursday, Dec. 5, we thought we'd take a look at where the cast of the original film version of "The Sound Of Music" has landed.
