THE RUNDOWN: Wednesday, December 7

Wednesday night has the big December musical event for NBC and this year it is Hairspray Live. The live musicals have had an interesting trajectory with the huge Sound of Music in 2013 followed by a disappointing performance for Peter Pan in 2014 and a rebound for The Wiz in 2015. This seems to have buzz and the live musicals got an extra shot in the arm with FOX's successful Grease in January. My prediction is it will be somewhere close but slightly below The Wiz's 11.5 million viewers and 3.4 demo. It doesn't have to face football this year but the other networks are all airing regular programming. Hairspray could have the biggest impact on the ABC comedies (except for Modern Family, which is a repeat) and Empire.
