Television Exclusive – NBC Moves Two-Hour “Smash” Season Finale

Fans of NBC’s Smash may be interested in hearing the news about the two-hour long season finale entitled “The Tonys.” The network has announced this episode will air on Sunday, May 26th at 9/8c.

In a recent interview with TVLine, showrunner Josh Safran revealed that there is going to be a musical number that features all of the principal cast and “all the loose ends from this season getting tied up — some more happily than others.”

There is speculation that Smash might be canceled due to the low ratings and the fact that it was recently moved to Saturday nights. Moving a show to Saturday nights is usually the “kiss of death” for television. However, the network has not made any official announcements regarding the cancelation of Smash. I am still willing to hold out hope that it will be renewed for a third season.

Personally, I trust a direct announcement from the network more than any other source. NBC has just revealed this afternoon several shows that are renewed for the fall, which include Parenthood, Grimm, Chicago Fire, and Revolution. The network has not addressed anything about Smash yet, but be sure to check back in for more news soon.

Do you want Smash to come back for a third season? Will you be tuning in to the season finale? Which musical is your favorite, Bombshell or Hit List? What do you think will happen at the Tonys?

“Glee” – Season Four Cast Portraits and Exclusive Photos

New cast portraits and images from the first episode of Season Four of Glee have officially been released. The first episode of the season is entilted “The New Rachel” because as the new school year begins, “New Directions” needs to find their next star performer.

These new photos feature most of the characters we love, of course, and some of the new characters that we will be meeting for the first time this season. However, Dianna Agron (Quinn) and Jayma Mays (Emma) were not in any of these photos because they were both “on location” filming other projects when the photoshot took place. That does not mean we will not be seeing them this season though, so Gleeks, not to worry!

So what do you think of these portraits and photos? What do you think of the first look at some of the new characters? Are you anxiously awaiting the Season Four premiere? Be sure to share your thoughts in the comments below! Remember Season Four premieres Thursday, September 13.
