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!
