On the fourth-place network's deck: Season 2 of The Voice (featuring Kelly Clarkson, Lionel Richie, Miranda Lambert and Alanis Morissette, among others, as guest mentors), the eagerly anticipated Smash, Harry Connick Jr. as a new beau for Law & Order: SVU's Mariska Hargitay (who is not leaving the show) — and, yes, Community, which will return at some point this spring.
