The viewer tallies — and the rest of last night’s broadcast ratings — are in, and NBC’s “Peter Pan Live” pulled in 9.1 million viewers in primetime. While undeniably a strong Thursday number, the count was less than half of “Sound of Music Live’s” 18.6 million total viewers, according to Live + Same Day fast national numbers.

And CBS actually topped NBC in total viewers last night, though CBS’s numbers are likely to adjust down later on Friday — the network had an NFL preemption in the Dallas and Chicago markets.

NBC was first in ratings with a 2.3 rating/7 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and second in viewers with an average of 9.1 million, according to preliminary numbers. “Peter Pan Live,” beginning at 8 p.m., was the only broadcast on NBC’s primetime schedule.
