'Smash' gets a Sunday showcase for its Season 2 finale
Banished to Saturday several weeks ago, NBC's "Smash" seemed as good as dead, but is there at least an iota of cause for hope?
Sure, if you pretend hard enough!
NBC announced this week that "Smash" will air its two-hour season finale on Sunday, May 26.
Yes, that's still after the official end of the Nielsen season, so NBC isn't taking any risk by moving "Smash" out of the Saturday graveyard, but at least the network is trying, right? Well, it's also the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, when TV usage is low, so there's that.
But at least the "Smash" finale will air on a real night and against minimal competition.
Of course, NBC will already have decided the show's fate by then.
So... The only real news here is that the "Smash" finale will air on Sunday, May 26.
