“Smash” Canceled: Twitter ReactsBy: Amanda Crum - May 13, 2013
The once-promising NBC drama “Smash”, about a cast of Broadway actors and dancers, has officially been canceled by the network.
The show was much-hyped before its first season and brought in almost 12 million viewers, a staggering amount for a musical drama. But after a nine-month hiatus, the show just couldn’t hold onto its viewers. The numbers dropped to 4.5 million for the second season and ratings plummeted, sending the network bosses into a frenzy.
The show, which stars “American Idol” alum Katharine McPhee and Anjelica Huston, will finish out the second season on Saturday nights.
