Katharine McPhee Sticking With Smash's Sinking Ship!

katharine mcphee sticking with smash despite rumors of cancelation

With Smash's new Saturday night time slot and Debra Messing leaving for CBS, things aren't looking to good for the musical-drama.

But finally it looks like there might be a bit of a silver lining for fans of the show!

Rumors began swirling that Katharine McPhee might also be on her way out, a move that would most likely be the last nail in the coffin for the dying series. One source even went so far as to say:

"She knows it was a failure and she doesn't want her name linked to it, because nothing she has done has been a big hit. She wanted to break through and be a big star by the time she was 30."

Talk about harsh!!

Well now Katharine's reps are finally speaking out and saying those reports are a load of bull poop! The former American Idol star is sticking with the show until the end!

This has really been the first good news we've heard for Smash in a long time, and although NBC has yet to cancel the show, the future still looks pretty bleak.

It's great to see Katharine showing some loyalty, but unless she's able to get a ton of viewers to start watching on Saturday nights, they will probably be getting the axe soon!

    My friend is an extra for Smash and she told me they filmed the final episode and congratulated the cast/gave farewells, etc. So, I think it's safe to say the show is over with after this season.

    Re: IWannaBeLikePerez – Happy to hear it. I loved the show at first, but it seemed to come off the rails.

    Katherine McPhee leaving would be the BEST thing to happen to the show. She is a robot, unemotional zombie. No real life Broadway show would cast her because of her stoicism. Yes, she can sing, but that is it. The show sucks.

    While the show probably isn't coming back, they "give farewells" during any Season Wrap, on any TV show, regardless.

    NBC had an awesome show on at 10:00pm on Tuesday - Parenthood. It was the best, and yet they chose to not add extra episodes for the season and instead replace it with this show. Karma is a bitch.

    Katharine McPhee suck so bad. That's why the show sucks

    I like the show and feel it would be a shame if it doesn't come back for season 3. It is like no other show on television. It was a little rough last year, but they listened to the critics and it's a lot better now. In fact, each show seems to get better and better. I especially like the new songs from "Hit List." And I think the scripts have improved a lot, which has really helped the acting, including Katharine McPhee's performance as Karen.

    Re: ariana – I can't believe I am watching the same show as most of the previous people. I love the show, and I love karen. Her voice is beautiful !! I was hoping she would get gutsy, which she did when she left Bombshell. She has to be the character she is "written" to be. Don't blame her !! I hope the show doesn't get cancelled, and I think Katharine needs to stay put !!!!!!

    I preferred the first season and enjoyed those characters. They have added too many new characters this season. I do not care for the storyline with Katherine McPhee and her new love interest. In fact, the show would be better without Katherine and her new whiny boyfriend.

    I am surprised, but I really like this show!!! I can't believe the critics panning it. I think there are a few new off shoots of the story lines that are out of step with the quality of the show, like Katherine McPhees new love interest. Not very believable, but I sure hope the show stays on!

    Katharine McPhee sings like an automaton in a whiny voice. She's been the weakest link in the show. They should have cut her and kept Will Chase.
