It's curtains for "Smash": NBC has officially canceled the musical drama.
Originally a bright spot on NBC's scheduled during its first season, "Smash" started Season 2 off on a bad foot. After being off the air for about nine months, the new season debuted to disastrous ratings -- 4.5 million viewers and a 1.1 rating the coveted 18-49 demographic -- and it only went down from there. Because of the ratings, it wasn't surprising that the network decided to cancel "Smash."
NBC exiled the now-canceled "Smash," which starred Katharine McPhee, Debra Messing and Anjelica Huston, from Tuesdays to Saturdays where it will finish out its Season 2 at 9 p.m. ET.
