Five Stages of Grief :S

I haven't even come on LJ thanks to the stupidity of the Smash writers. Although, as I sit here, I realized that I had to say something and join in with the others who feel the same pain as I do.

In class we were reviewing the basic stages of grief-


I am pretty sure Smash has caused me to go over the first three a dozen times or so in the past three weeks.

I currently am depressed. However, with so little left to go, I am edging into acceptance.

What a great, awesome show that has been slaughtered. How do shows like CSI, that's ratings drop and cast dwindles stay around, but shows with real potential die.

I hate television.

Viva LA Smash!

Favorite songs?

So, what are your favorite songs on the show?

I've read in many boards that people hate the "Hit List" plot, but I must say I'm obsessed with most of the songs with only a few exceptions and therefore enjoy "Hit List" in all its overly dramatic glory. I think adding a male vocalist with Jeremy Jordan was a brilliant move and something that was missing in season one. Loved "Heard Your Voice in a Dream", "Broadway Here I Come", "Heartshaped Wreckage" and "The Last Goodbye". Ana's "Reach for me" was also pretty damn catchy. I kinda wish though Jeremy Jordan was singing everything. Really prefered his version of "Caught in the storm" - too bad we only got an official release of Kat McPhee's version. My least favorite out of the "Hit List" songs were probably "Good for you" and "Original" - at least so far - I guess I just don't like it when Smash goes too much into the direction of mainstream pop songs.

As for "Bombshell", "Let Me Be Your Star" remains the one to beat - though I still like most of the other songs. "They Just Keep Moving The Line" and "Second Hand White Baby Grand" are probably in my Top 5 of the Bombshell songs. God bless Megan Hilty. The "20th Century Fox Mambo", "Smash", "History is made at Night", "Mr. & Mrs. Smith"  and "Don't Forget Me" follow closely.

As for cover songs, I absolutely love the versions of "Dancing on my own" and "Bittersweet Symphony" that Megan Hilty sang. Jimmy's "High & Dry" was also pretty good. I mostly like Megan Hilty's cover songs better than the ones that Kat McPhee has - I think Megan gets the better song choices, though I liked Kat's "Run"-version. Also, Kyle's version of Jeff Buckley's "The Last Goodbye" needs some getting used to, I thought it was horrible when I first heard it, but now I kind of like it.

It's a shame Megan Hilty and Jeremy Jordan never did sing together on the show.
I have to vent my version of what I wish happened on tonight's episode.

"Smash" filming has ended for the principal cast for Season 2 ... and maybe for good.

Several cast members including Megan Hilty, Debra Messing and Katharine McPhee took to Twitter to share photos and thoughts about the end of Season 2.


While no official word has come down the pipeline, this looks like it'll be the last season for "Smash." The show has struggled in the Nielsen ratings since its sophomore debut in February. Its most recent outing was adjusted up to 2.7 million viewers and a 0.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic, down dramatically compared to its Season 1 numbers.

In February, Hilty told HuffPost TV that she tries not to worry about ratings. "Listen, as an actress I realized a long time ago there are a lot of things out of my control," she said. "Those are the things I can't let affect me because what can I do? All I can do is show up and do the best work that I can and the rest is in everybody else's hands."



Smash Moving to Saturdays

Well at least NBC didn’t cancel it. The network announced today that it will relegate the very low-rated Smash to Saturdays beginning April 6, where it will live out its final days. NBC ordered a total of 17 episodes for its second (and obviously last) season, but hey — change was needed: Tuesday’s episode earned a 1.4 rating in 18-49 this week and a mere 4.78 million in viewers. Last year, it averaged 9.65 million and a 3.4 rating in the demo.
