NBC’s The Wiz Live! A Ratings Success!!

Submitted by on December 4, 2015 – 3:20 pmNo Comment

Thursday night’s presentation of The Wiz Live! brought in impressive numbers for NBC. The production averaged a 3.4 rating among adults 18-49 and 11.5 million viewers that night. That puts it ahead of last year’s Peter Pan Live, which snagged 9.1 million viewers, but behind the 18.6 million that tuned in for The Sound of Music Live in 2013.

The Wiz Live! stars newcomer Shanice Williams as Dorothy, David Alan Grier as the Cowardly Lion, Elijah Kelley as the Scarecrow and Ne-Yo as the Tin-Man. Others in the production include Mary J. Blige as the Wicked Witch of the West, Orange is the New Black star Uzo Aduba as Glinda, the Good Witch of the South, Glee’s Amber Riley as Addaperle, the Good Witch of the North and Queen Latifah as the almighty Wiz.

NBC will air an encore of The Wiz Live! from 8 to 11 pm on Saturday, December 19.
