Congratulations to 2013 Instinct Leading Men Neil Meron and Craig Zadan, the producers behind NBC's live television presentation of The Sound of Music starring Carrie Underwood as Maria.
Ratings were massive and could be a sign of more live events to come!

According to NBC and today's Nielsen Ratings report:
"The Sound of Music Live!" (4.6/13 in 18-49 and 18.470 million viewers overall) dominated the night with NBC's best 18-49 Thursday average, excluding sports, since the night of the "ER" finale (5.2, April 2, 2009). In total viewers, this is NBC's best Thursday average excluding sports since May 13, 2004 ("Frasier" finale night, 22.597 million viewers).
18. 4 million viewers? Kudos to NBC for taking a risk!
