NBC Cancels Smash

SmashRumors have been flying around for a few weeks and now the official word is out : NBC has canceled “Smash.”

Long the pet project of NBC president Bob Greenblatt, who brought it with him when he arrived from Showtime, “Smash” was instead a very expensive disappointment in its first season and an embarrassing failure in its second. Its modest season 1 ratings were entirely a creation of airing after “The Voice,” and left to its own devices in season 2, it tanked so quickly that NBC shuffled “Smash” off to Saturdays to die quietly. Because it was beloved by Greenblatt — who called the show “an unqualified success” after season 1 (after creator Theresa Rebeck and a number of actors were replaced) — there was always a slim chance it might return, but NBC announced tonight that the series won’t continue next season.
