NBC’s live production of “The Sound of Music” will get an encore airing later this week. The network announced that it plans to re-air the three-hour musical Saturday at 8 p.m., the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker reports.

The live production originally aired last Thursday and proved a ratings success for NBC, drawing about 18.6 million viewers, more than network executives had expected.

“While many tuned in, not all were kind to the show. While technically the production was pulled off, many pointed to singer Carrie Underwood, not known for her acting abilities, as Maria, the main character," the story reports. "Times TV critic Robert Lloyd wrote" ‘As a stage actress, there was no way to regard her as anything but an amateur.’"

  1. The biggest issue was the lack of an audience. There was no laugh track and no applause after a song. When watching TV these are expected and it didn’t work not having those.
