Sorry to hear this. I really like this show! The songs are the best. "History is made at night, so close the books, turn off the light..." so sexy.

And I like that they have three shows competing for viewers' attention, not just Bombshell. Really more interested in the Fringe one, anyway!

*sigh* I remember when Saturdays had hit shows like Facts of Life, 227, Golden Girls, & Empty Nest (followed by Hunter).

Does anyone think Bravo might be a better fit? When The Jennifer Hudson character sang on Bravo (within the series) a couple of episodes ago, I wondered that.

Smash showrunner Josh Safran admits he was “saddened” by NBC’s decision this week to banish the struggling musical to Saturdays beginning April 6.

He was also surprised.

“I didn’t see it coming, being relegated to Saturday,” he tells TVLine. “We’re all aware the show is not successful, but I guess I had hoped we would see what happened when The Voice came back [or] maybe they’d move us to a better time slot. But I understand from the network’s point of view. We hit a number and we stuck there.”

The number the show hit when it returned for Season 2 last month was a 1.1 demo rating, a decline of 25 and 39 percent from its freshman finale. It slipped further in Week 2, stabilized in Week 3, and most recently ticked up a hair to 2.9 million viewers and a 0.9 rating. But as Safran points out, going up a tenth of a point “is not really going up.”

If there’s a silver lining here for fans, it’s that all of this season’s remaining 11 episodes will air (the next three on Tuesdays at 10/9c and the final 8 on Saturdays at 9/8c). And, according to Safran, Episode 17 “was constructed as a series finale.”

“I don’t want [viewers] to think they are going to be left hanging, because they won’t be,” he assures. “The season has a beginning, middle and an end… [And] it just gets better and better.

“Everyone here from the top down is incredibly proud of the work,” he continues. “I know that there are people who have their opinions and that’s totally acceptable, but that doesn’t change our viewpoint that we’re really proud and we love the show.”

At least there's that. *sigh* and now I'm back to the days of searching for a show to love that won't be cancelled.

That is not a good sign, Eric McCormack show perception is renewed for a second season, formerly from Will & Grace.

It is hard to invest in anything from NBC....they don't keep their shows around long enough anymore to instill that trust that the show is not going to be ripped away at any moment.

That is why I haven't invested much on NBC anymore I prefer CBS or satellites shows like Games of Throne

Perhaps it's too much to hope for, but maybe the extra press with this move will spur theater lovers to tune their TV sets to NBC on Saturday nights.
In a perfect world, since this news broke last week, ratings for tonight's episode surged, next Tuesday's episode's ratings will be healthy and the Saturday airings will either stay steady or the ratings next week will be so healthy that NBC abandons the plan to move the show.
