It was no big surprise that NBC smashed Smashed to pieces.
But, it's still sad to see it go.
Yes, the network has finally let the show out of its misery and has cancelled it after two years of being on the air. NBC recently axed a slew of its network programming, so we had a feeling the show was on the chopping block.
But, what does the show's star, Katharine McPhee have to say about it?
Smash's ship might be sinking fast, but no matter what night the show airs Bernadette Peters will ALWAYS be a star!
The Broadway legend will making a smashing return to the show on this week's The Parents.
This time Bernadette could be staying on the show for longer than one episode at a time after being offered a role in the fictional play, Bombshell.
Maybe she is the star power the TV show needs???!
Because Katharine McPhee, Anjelica Huston, Jennifer Hudson, and Debra Messing don't appear to be enough.
Regardless, we'll always welcome a performance from this bright-eyed bubbly icon!!!!
Ch-ch-check out the sneak peek (above)!
At least one thing in Kat's life is going right!!
Katharine McPhee teamed up with the boys of OneRepublic last night and gave us an elimination episode performance to remember!
We're still reeling from the singer's short and sassy haircut, but as soon as she opened her mouth and sang her pretty little soul out, we were riveted!!
Ch-ch-check out their perfect performance of If I Lose Myself on last night's American Idol (above)!
Thankfully the song was sensational, because Katharine might be forced to cut this in her new reel if Smash continues to sink!
Hacking off one's hair can be so pleasantly liberating.
And we wonder if Katharine McPhee was going for a specific kind of liberation when she chopped off her wavy shoulder-length tresses in favor of a chin-length bob.
Is this a kiss-off to Smash? Or an adios to winter?
Regardless of the reason, we gotta admit we rather like this blunt cut as juxtaposed against Katharine's delicate bone structure.
The actress showed it off at LAX airport on Wednesday in a geek-chic outfit of collared shirt and gray sweater paired with hipster-y glasses.
But check out her footwear! Patchwork blue suede booties with side cut-outs!
Are U feeling Katharine's new 'do???

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:
Katharine McPhee was spotted leaving LAX on Friday.
Girl was lookin' goooood as usual!
We love her style! Leather jacket over a white tank top and cream lace skirt with big black boots.
Also we really like her bags, especially the one with the two puppies spilling out of it!
She was carrying her two chihuahua pups with her!!
They're just so adorbz it's crazy!
We'd take them literally everywhere, so we guess Katharine isn't much different because she clearly just had her purse pups on the plane with her.
Because they're just too darn cute to leave behind.
Glad to see they get to spend so much time with their mama!

This ain’t good news for Smash fans!
Being moved to Saturday night TV is pretty much like being put in a coffin and laid to rest in a failed TV show graveyard.
And that’s just what’s happening to Katharine McPhee and Smash as the show is moving to Saturday nights at 9 p.m. on NBC starting on April 6th.
Even though the show will continue to air, the ratings for the second season are HURTING.
It's true, Jennifer Hudson couldn't even save the show!
Unfortunately, the premiere only brought in 4.5 million viewers while numbers have been declining with the most recent episode getting less than 3 million viewers.
Well, if there is any show that can revive itself from near TV death, it's one with two formerly booted American Idol contestants who've gone on to bigger and greater things!
