Smash's New Boss Tries to Turn Hate-Watchers into Hope-Watchers in Season 2

Megan Hilty, Katharine McPhee

All eyes are on Smash as the NBC musical drama prepares to unveil its second season on Tuesday (9/8c on NBC). But it's not because fans are dying to know whether Ivy (Megan Hilty) survived her possible pill overdose or if Karen (Katharine McPhee) ditched her cheating boyfriend — it's because fans are waiting to see just how much the Smash they loved, and more famously loved to hate, has changed its tune.

Premiering on NBC a year ago with impressive critical acclaim and almost inescapable advertising, Smash follows the creation of Bombshell, a new Broadway musical based on the life of Marilyn Monroe, and the characters involved behind the scenes. Over the first season, ingénues Karen and Ivy tried to out-diva each other for the main role while juggling messy love lives, lyricist Julia (Debra Messing) cheated on... read more

Golden Globe Surprises and Snubs: Smash Tastes Success; Mad Men Gets the Cold Shoulder

Smash

If there's one thing we can count on from the Golden Globes, it's that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association will never fail to be simultaneously great and frustrating. Such was the case with its nominations for the 70th annual show. Smash yes, Smash managed a series nod, while Mad Men is nowhere to be seen. But those weren't the only shockers Thursday morning.

Smash's April 23 episode is a good night for original tunes — and for songwriters Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (Hairspray), who crafted a pair of ditties just for the episode.

Question: I watched the first episode of Smash this week and I enjoyed it. I like the cast, the music and the dancing, and the overall "Broadway" feel of the show. I just can't find myself going along with what is apparently the central idea of the show, which is that Katharine McPhee would make a better Marilyn than Megan Hilty. Really? Don't get me wrong, I love ...

Decoding Mount McPhee: Is It a Smash Spoiler?

Smash

Here's hoping Megan Hilty doesn't have a complex... For months, NBC has been touting Smash as that new show starring American Idol's Katharine McPhee when in fact she is one of two actresses in the series whose characters are vying to play Marilyn Monroe on Broadway.

"...and introducing Katharine McPhee!" "Watch this specially filmed music video of Katharine McPhee singing 'Beautiful'!" And just take a gander at the poster, nicknamed Mount McPhee by one of the Idol alum's co-stars: It does her co-stars like Debra Messing no favors (is she about to fall off?). Anjelica Huston just barely squeezes in.

So is it safe to assume that McPhee's Karen Cartwright gets to play Marilyn? read more

Monday TV in Review: Smash's Opening Night, Plus House, Castle, and More

Katharine McPhee, Megan Hilty

Resist the urge to pigeonhole or, worse, dismiss NBC's Smash as a "Glee for grownups." It's more original and exciting than that, bringing a thrilling charge of bold creative energy to network TV's mid-season that the fall largely lacked. Smash (premiering tonight at 10/9c, and maybe you caught wind of it during the Super Bowl?) is a musical show-stopper, a lavish and dishy wallow in the glittery yet ...
