· NBC won its fifth night in a row among ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in 18-49 (12/1-5). It's the first time since June 2002 that NBC has won five nights in a row, excluding Olympics (since a six-night streak June 2-7, 2002; NBC's last in-season five-night streak was May 1-5, 2002).

· The top local market in metered market households came in Carrie Underwood's home state, with Oklahoma City giving the three-hour special a 20.7/28. NBC ranked #1 in primetime in all 56 metered markets.

· With an +84% advantage over 2nd place CBS in A18-49 and excluding sports, this is NBC's best Thursday night dominance opposite all original broadcast competition since 10/4/01 (+161% vs. 2nd place CBS).

· Sound of Music Live led Big Bang in the 8pm half-hour (17.560 million vs. 15.261 million), marking the first time a show has topped Big Bang in P2+ head-to-head in strict half-hour data since American Idol did it on 5/10/12 (13.711 million vs. 13.668 million).
