Sound of Music Live

NBC has a lot to sing about: The Sound of Music Live! delivered massive numbers Thursday night.

The three-hour live production drew 18.5 million viewers and a 4.6 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, making it the night’s most-watched program and posting NBC’s best Thursday demo rating since ER‘s series finale in April 2009. In terms of viewership, it was NBC’s best Thursday average since Frasier‘s series finale in May 2004.
