A Facebook page titled “Don’t Cancel SMASH” has more than 16,000 “likes” at this writing, and an E! Online vote for the network show that’s most worthy of saving has “Smash” currently in the lead with 35.83% of the vote.
Will these fan pleas be enough to get NBC to renew “Smash” for a third season? That remains to be seen. The show has done poorly in the ratings and was moved from Tuesday to Saturday night, which is known as a death sentence time slot.
While I have been disappointed with some of the writing on the show and would like to see the world of Broadway more realistically portrayed, I love the music and the actors. So, I’d love to see “Smash” get another chance.
Meanwhile, watch one of the show’s great musical numbers.
