NBC has renewed its freshman drama Smash for a second season. The pick-up comes just seven episodes into the show's run, which has seen it earn impressive ratings in its 10:00pm Monday time slot. So far Smash has been averaging a 2.6 in the adults 18-49 demographic, making it the struggling network's highest-rated scripted series.
Eight episodes remain in Season One of Smash, which is set to run every Monday uninterrupted until its season finale on May 14, 2012.
UPDATE: Season 2 of Smash returns on Tuesday, February 5, 2013 at 9:00pm with a 2-hour episode.

Smash is a great show. I look forward to seeing this series continue. I love the characters (especially Katherine McPhee) and the music.

I think this show is dumb and predictable.

Initially, bored stiff...as another poster said, story lines were telegraphed as if the show was made for the really dumb...but I began to enjoy it around the time that Ivy and Karen sang in the street and Ivy played at playing nice. Of course, the irony of Ivy having the mother from hell and ambition for miles made her perfect for Marilyn (besides her talent), not to mention her suicidality, but she is too unlikeable for us to root for, so we root for the relative unknown with everything going for her, but the misfortune of coming into contact with Ivy...who is destruction on wheels. I'm glad it was renewed, although I can't imagine how to stretch the premise.

I absolutely love this show - it's the only decent thing on TV along with Glee and The Big Bang Theory. The networks are saturated with reality shows, which I despise and don't watch any of them. I have even stopped watching Idol and don't watch The Voice or America's Got Talent and sure as Hell am not going to watch The X Factor now that Britney Spears is going to be a judge. She can't sing, can't dance...Also tired of all the sitcoms where the main theme is getting someone into bed. Come on networks...think of something new and exciting.

Loved the show in the beginning but storyline , has become hackneyed and obvous debra messing needs to smile once and awhile She always looks grim and hurt either you love your family or not. Either it is easy to walk away from the ex- lover or not. Ivy and Karen are great. Angelica Houston is also wonderful but really-- it's hard to believe a man the age of the bartender would be interested in her. All the makeu in the world and legs bared and flashing doesn't hide her age! The musical numbers are great and I love that you hear them many times just as you would in a show in rehearsals. Just don't know where the show can go next year bit will be interesting to see-- perhaps actors falling from scenery,!

What are people watching these days??? This show is ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!! The stars, the music , the dancing, the script--topnotch. This gives you an idea of what it is like to make it to the top!!! It may help to move it to a 9:00 time slot. SMASH is amazing!!!

I think the word that best describes Smash is uneven. It really is a solid premise that should spin off some interesting story lines, but unfortunately they choose to telegraph every one of them so that you can see them coming from a mile away. A little intrigue left to the imagination, or an occasional unexpected twist, would really be nice. The Katherine McPhee character (Karen) is a good one, and she plays it well. Plus her excellent vocal work is a real plus. Debra Messing is also a real pro, who can convey so many things with her great facial expressions, and Jack Davenport does a good job as the surly, roguish director Derek. But Megan Hilty and Angelica Huston are over-the-top melodramatic in the presentation of their characters, and not far behind them are Christian Borle (Tom) and the snoopy wannabe producer character called Ellis. And then tonight, Uma Thurman's turn in full Marilyn Monroe garb was just plain scary. It made her beautiful eyes look positively buggy and placed an abundance of emphasis on her forehead. She generally comes off on screen as a intelligently attractive woman, but they did her no favors tonight. On the plus side, there really have been some good musical numbers and choreography, which is largely what keeps me coming back for more each week.
