The Sound of Music Live! - Season 2013
Fellow passionate fans of Julie Andrews' film version of The Sound of Music take note:  it's time to put down our weapons and open up to the idea that young country singer Carrie Underwood may well fill Andrews' shoes as Maria Von Trapp on Thursday night's (Dec. 5) live broadcast of the Rodgers & Hammerstein classic.
It's not just the return of "Dallas" that has me feeling revved up about TV this week.  Producers of tonight's 66th Annual Tony Awards promise there will be more performances from the musicals and plays nominated this year on the show than ever, and prodigiously talented host Neil Patrick Harris is back for his third turn emceeing -- which is as close as you can get to a guaranteed quality evening.  ( Watch online encore here.)
