"Sound of Music" Is A Ratings Hit

The live "Sound of Music", which has been panned by most critics (including me), did exactly what the network wanted it to do. It got huge ratings. I suspected as much, considering all of the responses I got to my facebook and twitter reports on the subject. A lot of people were watching.

18.6 million to be precise. From the AP...

It was NBC's best Thursday average, excluding sports programming, since the series finale of "Frasier" aired in May 2004, and the most-watched nonsports night since the Golden Globes broadcast seven years ago, the network said.
