Persnickety: Back in 2007, MTV taped the live Broadway version of Legally Blonde, promoted the hell out of it and broadcast it uncut during prime time. It's based on the reasonably well known movie, targeted at MTV's main demographic. The songs were snappy, the actors were on target, the choreography was upbeat and live audience really added to the energy. But with no Reese Witherspoon or other big name star, the ratings were terrible and they've never done anything like that since.
greentea1985: As long as they get a better cast next time, I'm ok with this. My issue with their live Sound of Music was that I didn't like Carrie Underwood's acting and didn't feel she was the right person for the role. Carrie can sing, but she can't act. If they cast someone else, I'm perfectly fine with it. I wouldn't mind a live-action Singing in the Rain if it was cast well.
TV's Vinnie: This wasn't different. It was just peanut-sh*t compared to Honey Boo Boo runny sh*t.
