Ratings: ‘Smash’ bombs on Season 2 return – 2/06/2013
Smash Season 2 premiered to a 1.1 adult rating last night and 4.5 million viewers.
The show starring Jennifer Hudson and Katharine McPhee premiered to a 3.8 rating and 11 million viewers last season.
Looks like it’s game over for this show. It was topped by every other show on TV last night except for the CW. So what happened to the “stars” of American Idol?
NCIS had a 3.7 rating and 21.49 million viewers.
The Taste has a 1.8 rating and 5.28 million viewers.
The Bachelor has a 2.6 and 7.79 million.
New Girl had a 2.5 and 4.81 million (still a hit!)

Got Something to Add?
Shame. I genuinely do love the show. It has a weird charm to it, and the original songs are pretty great.
That said, this doesn't really surprise me. If the show has any saving grace it's that it's on NBC, the network whose standards for what constitutes a "hit" and what constitutes a "bomb" vary from week-to-week. And they might not want to cancel a show they've sunken so much money into without seeing it through.
I really do need to stay away from Entertainment Weekly. The gloating about this in the comments section is fucking insufferable.
