NBC is going back down the yellow brick road.
The network will air an encore of The Wiz Live! on Saturday, Dec. 19 at 8 p.m.
Although a repeat of the telecast was already on the books, the encore should come as little surprise given the strong ratings the live telecast brought in Thursday. The Wiz Live! averaged a 3.4 rating among adults 18-49 and 11.5 million viewers — a sizable jump from Peter Pan Live!‘s 2.3 rating the year prior.
The Wiz also received favorable reviews from critics and viewers, with many praising not only the diversity of the star-studded cast, which included names like Mary J. Blige and Queen Latifah, but also its production value.
Airing encores has become standard practice for NBC, having done so for both of its previous musical events.
