Fox’s first live-musical effort was not only a hit with viewers and critics, but scored in the ratings too.
Sunday night’s Grease: Live delivered 12.2 milllion viewers and a strong 4.3 rating among adults 18-49.
The three-hour musical was easily the biggest show on broadcast, and also beat two of NBC’s live musical stagings in the overnight numbers.
Grease: Live topped last year’s The Wiz Live (11.5 million) and 2014’s Peter Pan Live (9.2 million) (and the margins were even bigger in the young adult demo). Yet Grease couldn’t exceed (and, really, wasn’t expected to) broadcast’s first big 21st century live musical effort, 2013’s The Sound of Music Live, which stunned the industry and jump-started the whole live-musical surge by delivering 18.3 million viewers.
