Huge ratings, mixed reviews for NBC's live "Sound of Music"

"The Sound of Music" – did you love it or hate it? It probably doesn't matter.

NBC's three-hour live performance of the classic musical with Carrie Underwood as Maria drew a whopping 18.5 million viewers, as many as the 2009 series finale of ER.

From the very first notes, social media was buzzing with a variety of reactions, both positive and negative.

Actress Kym Karath, who played Gretl Von Trapp in the original "The Sound of Music" movie shares her take.

    NBC ruined one of America`s true classics last night, the Sound of Music.. All involved with the production should be ashamed of themselves.
