Just curious to know if anyone is watching it??

Sorry, I can't bring myself to.   If I were going to watch the show in a theatre somewhere as a musical....yep, I could do that.  On TV....nope, not for me....that is sacred Julie Andrews territory.

I might watch it, if I remember.   LOL.    I'd watch it to see how well Carrie does with it.   And it's Live so maybe it'll be fun to see if there are any flubs.  ;)

I want to try to see it, but I haven't taken the time to figure out where/when it's on.

Yes, I just looked, tonight from 8-11 on NBC.  I'm going to DVR it because DH and DD will be watching Vampire Diaries at 8 and I'll probably go to bed early tonight.

 Yes, I'm watching it. It's so good. the thing is that they are not doing a movie version of it. It's a very sweet, beautiful live musical version. You would so enjoy it. Guarantee you that Julie Andrews will give props to it. I wasn't going to but I am and I love it...

No flubs so far Lisa ... she slipped in one of the scenes early on but I don't think many noticed... I used to do theater in my younger years so I caught it ... she's doing really good..

I agree Lisa, I couldn't watch it although I'm sure it was great in it's own way.  Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer are the only ones I can watch in those roles!

I wonder why they wanted to do it live on tv.

I didn't watch....Half of my friends on Facebook loved it last night and the other half felt it did a great representation of the theater and the hard work that goes in to it.  Now the later half said that not because they loved it but because they work in the theater and they want people outside of the theater to see how much work is involved.  They did say there were some very painful parts to listen to...painful to the ear.  Overall tho....good remarks by all.
