The hills weren't really alive. They were alive...adjacent. That's the verdict for Sunday night's airing of the classic Sound of Music with Julie Andrews, which pulled in roughly 6.5 million viewers on ABC. That's about one-third of the audience Carrie Underwood garnered for NBC's Sound of Music Live! on Dec. 5. About 18.5 million viewers tuned in for NBC's first live-TV musical experiment, which attracted high praise for Underwood's voice, and a few raised brows regarding her acting abilities.
