mediablitz: 18 million viewers is a disaster?
stoli n coke: mediablitz: 18 million viewers is a disaster?From what I remembered, it was almost universally loathed. And I'm not talking about just critics. I saw social media posts from friends that are big Carrie Underwood fans, and even they thought that she sucked.I know anectotal evidence is not evidence at all. I'm just pointing out that I can't think of anyone who watched it that actually liked it. Because of the bad word of mouth Sound of Music generated, I find it a little surprising that Peter Pan got greenlit.It's like when a movie has great opening weekend box office, but bad reviews and bad word of mouth cause it to drop steeply. Then the sequel comes out, and completely tanks.For good or ill, the live Sound of Music will serve as a yardstick for the live Peter Pan broadcast. People may have tuned into Sound of Music, but if they didn't like it, they will avoid this new one like the plague.
Notabunny: The Peter Pan story line is pretty rich. Good vs evil, love and hate, youthful innocence coming to understand aging and death, well defined characters, safety and danger, magic and mystery. There's a lot of potential here.
Archimedes' Principal: They haven't cast the part of Peter yet?This looks like a job for.... Johnny Weir or Chris Colfer./ Won't be watching this one either, NBC.
