Sorry Jimmy Stewart, Carrie Underwood just took your spot in Saturday's lineup. NBC has announced that it will  rebroadcast The Sound of Music Live on Saturday at 8 p.m., bumping a planned showing of  It’s A  Wonderful Life .

NBC’s live musical broadcast on Dec. 5 drew a whopping 18 million viewers, despite criticism of Underwood’s lack of acting ability. The three-hour telecast used the Broadway stage version, with several songs not used in the 1965 Julie Andrews movie. Even those who didn't love it had a blast tweeting about it, as we noted here.

Will the second time bring the same dough-re-me, or at least more DGiorno pizza tweets?
