When I heard that NBC was going to produce a remake of The Wiz, I said eh maybe I will watch it, maybe I won’t. I thought to myself, who could do it better than Michael Jackson and Diana Ross. I was a skeptic at first, but I tuned in anyway. I wasn’t alone, over 11 million people viewed The Wiz on December 3, 2015. The rating were way better then NBC’s previous remake of Peter Pan.
Unfortunately before The Wiz could even air, some people tried to start some trouble. Some people who have been living under a rock, decided that The Wiz was racist because it had an all black cast. News flash The Wizard of Oz has an all white cast and no one is complaining about it. The haters could not stop this show. The Wiz did so well, NBC has decided to re-air the production.
