BEVERLY HILLS — NBC has had a big year, rebounding 33% in viewers (moving from fourth to second) and jumping from third place to first among young adults, even when excluding the winter Olympics.
Well, Peter Pan Live!, due Dec. 4, hopes to re-create the ratings magic that last year's The Sound of Music had, with Christopher Walken as Captain Hook. (The network wanted Kristen Bell to play Peter, but she wasn't available. Another actress will be cast soon).
