Well I can't say I'm all that surprised. It's official: NBC has canceled Smash, the musical drama starring American Idol finalist Katharine McPhee, Will and Grace's Debra Messing, Megan Hilty, and Anjelica Huston, among others. The show, whose ratings proved disastrous in its second season, will finish out its second season at the Saturday 9 p.m. timeslot.
Ugh. Just because I'm not surprised doesn't mean I'm happy about all of this. I was so drawn to McPhee's character Karen, her innocence, and that voice. I loved Jimmy's storyline and the amazing music that he created. And most of all, I loved that Smash was an adult-version of Glee (in a way) that I had no shame in confessing my adoration for.
Compared to half of the garbage on TV, I'm just disappointed that this is the kind of show that can't make it.
