'Smash' Canceled

NBC has decided to pull the plug on its musical-drama show Smash after only two seasons. After a promising first season and then a disappointed start to its second, Smash has been put through the NBC wringer in an attempt to finish out season two before a straight cancelation. Smash starred former "American Idol" contestant Katharine McPhee, Andy Mientus, Debra Messing and Anjelica Huston.

After a disappointing second season, NBC has moved the show from Tuesday nights to Saturday nights (OUCH!), where it will finish out the rest of the season. Smash star Katharine McPhee had this to say about the cancellation:

"Sure, I wish that it could have five more seasons, but we had two great seasons and all I can say is I loved every moment of it. I loved getting to the set, I loved the people, I loved my crew. We did amazing things on the show in two years.

With this business, you can never predict what people are going to like or love or hate. All I know is that when the show started and people were so excited about the pilot, I was excited to finally be a part of something that could showcase me. Everyone has perceptions about what you're capable of and what you can do and this show was a huge gift."

After the news of the cancellation broke, some of the cast members took to their respective Twitter accounts to voice their gratitude to the Smash’s fans. Here are some examples:

Here are NBC's other new shows:

—"About a Boy," based on the Nick Hornby novel of the same name, is a comedy about single man who bonds with the 11-year-old son of a woman — played by Minnie Driver — who moves in next door. It is scheduled to air Tuesday nights in midseason.

—"The Family Guide," a sitcom about a divorced family, is already looking for a new lead: actress Parker Posey dropped out in the past few days. NBC has time to recast it, since the show is scheduled for Tuesdays in midseason.

—"Undateable," from "Scrubs" producer Bill Lawrence, another comedy in a long line of "Friends"-inspired shows about young people and romantic entanglements.

—"Chicago PD," a companion to "Chicago Fire," by veteran producer Dick Wolf. A drama about the rivalry between uniformed cops and the intelligence unit.

—"Crossbones," with John Malkovich as the 18th Century pirate Blackbeard. On the schedule for Fridays in midseason.

—"Dracula," a drama beginning in the fall about the iconic character. It airs Friday in the fall, replaced by "Crossbones" in midseason.

—"The Night Shift," a medical drama focused on the overnight crew in a San Antonio hospital.

—"The Million Second Quiz," a trivia game show that unfolds over 12 consecutive days.

—"Food Fighters," a cooking game hosted by Adam Richman that has professional chefs trying to outdo amateurs offering a much-beloved family recipe.

—"American Dream Builders," a home renovation show hosted by Nate Berkus.
