Other than CBS, broadcast has the dilemma of having to compete with subscription-based niche programming without the subscription revenues. Smash is just the latest victim of that split. It was originally envisioned for Showtime and might have been a lot better there, or at any rate, 4M viewers would have been enough to keep it going, and nobody would worry about the demo.
Yeah, Smash is definitely a niche show that would have been much better on pay or broadcast cable. Had it been geared toward kids, it might have been a hit a la Glee, but geared toward adults, it just isn't able to hold enough of that audience's attention.

The show this season has been much improved too. They dropped all of the angsty private life crap and the musical presentations i.e, song choice and placement, and performance have been great as opposed to what was seen last season.

But glad to hear that they plan on etting them finish it out.
