Ratings: Smash Crashes!

smash-jennifer-hudson_320x240

Somebody call an ambulance!  Smash has been shot.  Down. What was last year’s surprise hit for NBC, is this years dodo bird.  Smash premiered down over 70% from its premiere last season despite adding Jennifer Hudson, coming in the lowest. Rated. Show. Of. The. Night.

The news is simply devastating for NBC, who tampered mercilessly with Smash’s showrunner staff as well as the casting, therefore inviting full blame for the Smash Crash due to their meddling. Just in case you aren’t reading my assessment of these numbers in the way I intend, here’s the TLDR:  Smash is toast. A disaster.

Elsewhere everything was pretty much roses and ponies.  ABC’s The Taste and The Bachelor each posted gains for the night.  NCIS and NCIS: LA on CBS… yeah they devoured their hours as always, Vegas did dip 16 percent.  FOX and The CW posted smallish gains for their shows, but I’m sure they aren’t complaining.
