    From TVbytheNumbers (and others):
    I glad to see it renewed though I'm finding recent episodes of the show a little too bogged down in soap story arcs and I'm not real impressed with Debra Messing in this show. But the rest of the cast is excellent and the development of the production of "Marilyn: the Musical" is fun to watch.

    And poor NBC. To be thrilled with ratings that places the show #3 in a competition of 3....

    It's like the old joke of Russia and the U.S. competing in basketball in the Olympics after everyone else boycotted. The U.S. wins and the headlines in the U.S. the next day read, "U.S. Defeats Russia. Wins Gold Medal." The Russian papers' headlines the next day are "Russia Wins Silver Medal. U.S. Places Next to Last." :)

    I was just thinking how Ms. Messing seems lost here- not a good role for her. The story is way slow, and I wonder if they have enough to even finish out this year....

    I had high hopes after seeing the first show. I've been a little let down. The show needs more of Ms. Huston (who is divine), many more songs, and a lot less of that "Ellis" character. He's no fun.

    Agree about Ellis. Glad AH put him in his place.

    The Mrs. and I are still really enjoying the show, so I'm happy it got renewed. The "Marilyn" musical production numbers are first rate, IMHO. Makes me want to see the play for real, should it ever make it to Broadway.

    I was also happy to see Bernadette Peters looking so good. It's been years since I saw her in anything, and she's still "got it", IMHO.

    It appears that NBC has recognized that the show has "creative" problems. According to Deadline Hollywood the show "will return next fall without its creator/executive producer/showrunner Theresa Rebeck."

    According to the story:
    I think they could have a much stronger second season if they bring in the right writers. Therein lies the challenge.

    I don't know why but I usually hate shows like this, but I just love Smash. Maybe it's just Katherine McPhee I love especially when she closes her sexy eyes and belts out a song at a Bar Mitzvah. :lol:
