Rent live premieres on TV… but isn’t fully live
Fox promoted the popular musical as Rent Live, the only problem was when the musical did premiere, it wasn’t exactly live. Brennin Hunt, who was cast in the role of Roger suffered an accident and broke his foot the night before the show was set to run. Fox decided to improvise and instead air a dress rehearsal in the place of the live-action show. Although the common saying is “the show must go on”, airing the dress rehearsal (while the cast was performing live at the same time for a studio audience in LA) proved to be unsuccessful and the not-so-live broadcast of Rent drew the lowest ratings ever for a live TV musical.

The comics have a history of that.”The revelation that there will be a new Bruce Waye definitely counts as top celebrity news of the week.
