(Newser) – While critics were busily groaning over Thursday's The Sound of Music Live, a certain other live show was busily plotting its takedown. Kristen Wiig returned for last night's Cold Open on Saturday Night Live, reports US, and promptly stole the sketch as her recurring character Denise made for a rather unique von Trapp child in a "condensed version" of the three-hour behemoth. (Sound of Music star Carrie Underwood, meanwhile, tweeted this in response to the hate: "Plain and simple: Mean people need Jesus. They will be in my prayers tonight...1 Peter 2:1-25.") Over at Huffington Post, Mike Ryan has his scorecard of last night's show, which was hosted by Paul Rudd with musical guest One Direction.
