I was SO mad last night when my local station preempted Smash to cover a local event. The explosion and fire here WAS major, but hours later, there was nothing new, mostly a rehash of everything that was already known. Thank goodness for on demand but it isn't the same ... can't ff through the commercials!

Hey neighbor. They actually moved it over to channel 38 the spot. They said it prior to 9pm while they were covering the event.

Howdy :-) problem ... I had it DVR'd so I didn't learn about the swap until 10 PM! They should have put the news coverage on channel 38 and just run banners IMHO. I sent them a fairly polite e-mail.

Unfortunately, it's Smash that needs the dramaturg.

It's disappointing. The edge is gone.

I watched faithfully last year and despite the bad reviews, I always enjoyed it. I really dislike the direction they are going in now. I deleted it from my DVR recording list. I find all of the new characters uninteresting.

Interesting! Sheryl Lee Ralph. who played the original Deena in Dreamgirls, on Broadway, is in this episode with Jennifer Hudson, playing her mom.

Yes, what is with that Jimmy? Is this writing for real? They actually think a guy with that attitude works? he's an arrogant a******. He acts like no one will give him a chance, and has a sense of entitlement at the same time like people OWE him a music career.

This new storyline with Julia has her whining AGAIN.

....that wouldn't happen in real life - you'd think that the writers would adhere to that....
