TV Smash

What A Smash Actor Really Thought Of Season 2
Smash ran for a meager two season before NBC pulled the plug in 2013. One of Smash's stars, Leslie Odom Jr., just won the Tony for his role in Hamilton, elevating him to a bonafide Broadway legend. So what does he think of his time on the small screen?
Smash's Megan Hilty Joins Sean Saves The World At NBC
The show may be over for NBC’s Smash, but critical darling Megan Hilty already has her sites set on another role at NBC. On Friday, it was announced that Hilty will be joining the peacock network’s new comedy, Sean Saves the World, which is set to premiere this fall. Hilty will actually have a regular role in the comedy, replacing Lindsay Sloane, who played the role of Liz in the pilot.

Success on the Broadway stage doesn't automatically mean success on the small screen, as a number actors can attest. In fact, those actors took the stage with Neil Patrick Harris at last night's 67th Annual Tony Awards to lament their failed series. Of course, that meant singing alongside Neil Patrick Harris, which may have been a bit of musically charged lemon in some fresh wounds.
Smash Series Finale Only Pulls In 2.4 Million Viewers
On Sunday, NBC aired an epic 2-hour finale for Smash, which wrapped up plenty of storylines and finished out the series. Since plenty of spring programming has already finished out its run, Smash’s biggest competition was Sunday’s airing of the NASCAR Sprint Cup. Proving that NBC was right to cancel the musical drama, Smash only earned a .5 rating, while the Sprint Cup brought in a 1.9.
Smash Executive Producer Talks Where Season 3 Would Have Gone
On Saturday, NBC aired Smash’s Season 2 and series finale in a two-hour epic weekend event. The show scored low ratings throughout its second season, but if the ratings had been different and the cancellation had not happened for the series, executive producer Joshua Safran had big plans for Season 3.
Smash Cancelled After Two Seasons
When a scripted series gets moved to Saturdays, it's probably only a matter of time before it's cancelled. So we shouldn't be especially surprised that the Broadway-focused drama is among the series that won't be returning at NBC next season. While the curtain will fall for the musical series, we'll get to see how the second season ends when the finale airs later this month.
Smash's Two-Hour Season Finale Will Air On A Sunday
Smash’s second season has been a mess, with the network splashing the show’s sloppy plotlines onto different evenings hoping to find a slot that works. Unfortunately, while there has been no official axing of the series, yet, the ratings aren’t saying good things about the series. However, there is a little bit of light at the end of the tunnel for NBC’s musical-oriented drama: the show’s finale will air on a Sunday instead of a Saturday evening.
Smash Is Moving To Saturdays, NBC Makes Other Schedule Changes
Since its return for the start of its second season, Smash has been struggling in the ratings. The return of The Voice might have helped it there, but it looks like NBC has opted to move the Broadway focused drama away from Tuesday nights, placing their new dating reality show Ready For Love in the post-Voice spot. That's good news for Ready For Love, but most certainly bad news for Smash, which is being moved to Saturdays, starting next month.
Smash Season 2 Watch: Episode 3, The Dramaturg
I’ve been a Smash apologist, always telling myself and my friends that it might just reach the heights of that fantastic pilot. But after outings like last night’s “The Dramaturg” and the almost-laughably-bad ratings of the premiere, I’m sad to say that I’m not sure we’re ever going to see “Bombshell” as the titular Broadway smash. This season is so far making up for last season’s mistakes in small ways, but it’s missing the vital components that make it a story worth watching.
Smash Ratings Down For Season 2 Premiere
Smash returned with the start of its second season on NBC last night and the numbers for the musical drama's Season 2 debut were not good. Viewership appears to have hit a new low for the series. The decrease is more drastic when compared to the series' debut, but the Season 2 premiere also fell behind the first season finale in total viewers by more than a million.
Smash Season 2 Premiere Watch: On Broadway And The Fallout
Well, we're back. And after a Season 1 that began with a lush and beloved pilot and descended into the most glorious of hate-watchable TV, Smash is rejiggered, with a new showrunner in Josh Safran and a cast that is streamlined and re-molded to focus on what we're supposed to love most: the high-stakes Broadway drama. So, did last night's first two hours of Season 2 deliver?
Smash Season 2 Review: More Drama, More Music And More Fantastic Voices
Smash is a classic example of a series that offered boatloads of potential in its pilot episode and then stumbled in its attempts to meet that potential throughout its first season. But the series is certainly not without its redeeming qualities, including an extraordinary cast with plenty of acting and musical talent to go around. Much in the way the show's featured Broadway musical Bombshell has had its struggles, so too has this series. But after watching the first two episodes of the returning musical drama, I'm hopeful that the series will find its way.
Smash Season 2 Sneak Peek Unveils Some Problems
Smash is about to officially return to NBC’s schedule. Fans may have gotten a taste of Season 2’s spectacle and musical numbers just a few weeks ago, when the network previewed the first half of the expansive two-hour opening episode. With the full 2-hour episode on it’s way in February, NBC has released a special clip from the second half of the episode, showing the crew scrambling for a location to perform and more from Marilyn’s writers, director, and financier.
Smash Season 2 Clip Shows Tension Between Karen And...
As January draws to a close, we have the February premieres to look forward to. For NBC, that includes the return of Smash for its second season. The network gave fans of the musical-drama a very big preview of the new season by releasing the first half of the two-hour Season 2 premiere online. This latest preview clip will probably make a bit more sense to those who have watched the first half of the season premiere. And since I'll be referencing something specific that happened during that first hour, consider yourselves spoiler warned!
Smash Season 2 Preview: Watch The First Half Of The Premiere Episode Here
As promised, NBC has made the first half of the two-hour Smash Season 2 premiere episode available for preview a few weeks ahead of the scheduled February premiere date. The Broadway-focused drama adds Jennifer Hudson for a multi-episode arc and (spoiler alert!) the first hour of the second season includes an appearance by the Oscar winner, who joins her fellow former American Idol contestant Katharine McPhee in the NBC drama.
Smash Season 2 Premiere: First Hour Will Be Available To Preview Next Week
Listen up, Smash fans! NBC's musical drama may be set to debut its second season in February, but the network is offering a treat for fans of the Broadway-focused series. NBC announced today that they're going to offer the first hour of Season 2's planned two-hour premiere a few weeks early, beginning next week.
Smash: Season 1 [DVD Review]
The brainchild of Steven Spielberg, the hour-long drama was supposed to depict the development of a Broadway musical about Marilyn Monroe from the perspective of both its creators and the actresses vying for the lead. A talented ensemble cast, including Debra Messing and Angelica Huston, converges with catchy music from the songwriting team behind Hairspray and a frank depiction of the brutal New York theatre machine. Unfortunately, in practice, the parts don't all work.
Smash DVD Clips Feature The Battle Of The Marilyns
NBC is gearing up for Season 2 of Smash, which means it is the time of year fans get to relive some of their favorite moments on DVD. To celebrate, Universal Studios Home Entertainment has put together some of the spiciest, sexiest moments from Season 1, highlighting the two actresses vying for the role of the lovely Marilyn, and even showing us a few of Season 1’s most fun musical numbers.
The 10 Best New Shows Of 2012 Include Girls, Midwives And A Scandal
Every major network listens to hundreds of television pitches each year. A small percentage of those receive a script order, a small percentage of those receive a pilot order, a small percentage of those actually get picked up, and hilariously, an overwhelming majority of those are still not very good. Most new television programs barely make it the full season let alone get picked up for another go around. Fortunately, there are always a dozen or so that somehow navigate through all of those trappings and actually work.
2013 Midseason TV Premiere Date Schedule
With 2013 right around the corner, it's time to start looking ahead at the winter TV season. We've begun gathering the return and season/series premiere dates for many of the network and cable TV shows, including Community, Smash, Touch and some of the new shows (The Following, Do No Harm and Banshee).
