'Smash' Cancelled: NBC Axes Musical-Drama After Two Seasons

Once NBC president Bob Greenblatt's pet project, the musical drama, as he would consider calling, is an "unqualified success."

The Broadway-focused musical drama, which stars Katharine McPhee and Megan Hilty, opened its second season with a huge flop compared to the first one as it only had a 1.1 demo rating with only 4.5 million viewers. Unfortunately, it has not gained more than that since then.

The show's potential cancellation became even more imminent when its airtime was moved from its original Tuesday slot to every Saturdays. This has always been a bad sign especially for those who knew the trend.

The ratings have gotten worse since then and if there is one episode that survived with a higher rating than the rest, it wasn't high enough to save the show. Needless to say it didn't even reach the already-reduced targeted mark.

It continued to dip down further from having 3 million viewers to less than 2 million when its schedule was moved.

Even winning th…
