Opposite NBC’s Sunday Night Football (San Francisco-Seattle) and Fox’s big NFL primetime overrun into the first hour of the night, ABC’s 4-hour rebroadcast of The Sound of Music delivered solid increases over last year’s telecast, up by 1.5 million viewers and by 22% in Adults 18-49.


  • · ABC’s encore movie beat out CBS’ line up on the night, which included a first-run 60 Minutes, by 22% in Adults 18-49.


  • · Gaining viewers in each hour, The Sound of Music doubled its Total Viewer (+100%) and Adult 18-49 (+117%) numbers from its first hour to its final hour.

    My parents took me to see this movie when it first came out. Watched it again on the small screen. Hope that one the local theaters will play it, because there is nothing like seeing it on the big screen.

    Everytime I see it, I can’t believe NBC was stupid enough to sell the rights to ABC
