Ratings: NBC's Sound of Music Live! Does Something Very Good; Glee and Grey's Eye Lows

Dec 6 2013, 11:08am CST | by TV Line

How do you solve a problem like a boorish, overly snarky Twitter feed? By hushing the haters with huge numbers.

Facing off against 100-percent original broadcast competition throughout its entire three-hour run, NBC’s The Sound of Music Live! on Thursday night put 18.5 million total bums in the seats (as they say on Broadway), while scoring a 4.6 rating.

That marks NBC’s largest non-sports Thursday audience since May 2004 (when Frasier’s finale night averaged 22.6 mil) and the network best non-sports Thursday demo number since the April 2009 ER finale (5.2).

Save for its opening half-hour against the always formidable Big Bang Theory, SOML at least doubled the total audience of the night’s 11 other broadcast programs.

TVLine readers meanwhile gave the production an average grade of “B-.”

NBC notes that, unsurprisingly, the top local market among the metered market households came from Oklahoma City, in female lead Carrie Underwood’s home state.

In other words, the countdown until NBC greenlights Taylor Swift’s Evita Live! starts now.

Elsewhere….

CBS | Big Bang (15.3 mil/4.6) dropped 19 and 13 percent, tying SOML for the night’s best demo; The Millers (9.4 mil/2.5) dropped three tenths, Crazy Ones (7.7 mil/2/1) slipped one tenth and Two and a Half Men (8.3 mil/2.3) ticked up two tenths. Elementary (8.2 mil/1.8) dipped 9 percent in audience but was steady in the demo.

ABC | Wonderland (3.6 mil/1.0) added a few eyeballs and a tenth in the demo, Grey’s Anatomy (7.5 mil/2.4) was down 13 percent and two tenths (to a new series low) and Scandal (8.6 mil/3.1) rose two tenths to a 6-week high.

THE CW | Vampire Diaries (2.26 mil/1.0) fell 16 and 23 percent, while Reign (1.65 mil/0.6) was down 8 and 14 percent.

FOX | The X Factor (4.8 mil/1/3) was down 13 percent from its last non-holiday outing, while Glee‘s fall finale(3.2 mil/1.2) fell 22 percent to new series lows.
