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!

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:

Smash Getting The Kiss Of Death! Moved To Saturday Night!

smash moved to saturdays

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!

Smash Fails To Rake In The Ratings & Hits A Series LOW! NBC To Pull The Plug?

smash ratings hit series low

Oh no… it sounds like one show just might be headed for cancellation!

Just one month into season two, NBC’s Smash has not been doing too well in the ratings rat race and on Tuesday night, it hit a new series low!

The show dropped 22 percent in ratings, nearly tying the CW’s Hart Of Dixie — definitely not a good sign!

Guess not even appearances from the ever AHmazing Jennifer Hudson could get the viewers to tune in!!

Compared to the show’s pilot episode, which raked in around 11 million viewers, just a little over 2 million viewers from Tuesday night’s episode is quite the decline!!!

With this season debuting with only 4.5 million viewers, reports are now saying that the high-priced production might even be pulled BEFORE this season’s finale!

With such a superstar cast and LOTS of dramz, what could’ve gone wrong?
