Smash Canceled By NBC, No One Surprised

by at . Comments

Season 2 of Smash, which comes to an end May 26 in a two-hour finale, will also be its last. NBC canceled the series in a move that surprised no one.

The backstage Broadway drama, plagued by low ratings and creative infighting from the start, was officially put out to pasture by the network this morning.

The Peacock pushed the show hard in the beginning, but to no avail. The inevitable cancelation was all but official after NBC moved Smash to Saturdays.

As such, it is not on the NBC 2013-14 schedule.

Despite the promise of the behind-the-scenes tale of a musical based on the life of Marilyn Monroe, and all the drama therein, the show never caught on.

On the bright side, fans, you can still look at Katherine McPhee photos on THG. Those are anything but canceled, if you know what we're saying.

We have no idea what that means.

I did not know that NBC had that many hit shows! This is one show that I never missed. Loved the concept and the music! Too bad! Need less reality TV and violence.

Very disappointed in the cancelation. Just proves that unless a series is violent or stupid it won't survive!

NBC SUCKS as usual!!!! I loved Smash. Why does everything have to be for kids, a doctor or police show. God forbid something different have some airtime. Next it will be Grimm - the only other show I watch on NBC. That network has been almost total crap for years. I still miss The West Wing.

I want to start by saying the show isnt boring to all who said it is. Who watch a show and compare it to real life get over it people smash was a damn good show and it needs to still be on i am very upset that smash will not be apart of my list of tv shows anymore it really sucks so i hope they replace smash with some boring ass show that the fat ass soccer moms like. Anh it makes me sick. And get a life u boring ass jobless men that watch for the women in the show.

The show is just boring. The only reasons I have watched it are because of sexy Katharine MacPhee and the guest appearance of Jennifer Hudson.
