It turns out that all that was missing from Smash was a voice. Well, The Voice. NBC’s struggling musical dramedy was given a hefty ratings boost on March 26 from the second episode of the hit talent competition The Voice, which began its fourth season on Monday.
Smash ended NBC’s ratings-dominating evening with 3.11 million viewers and a 1.0 share, a significant rise over its muddy six-week performance, reports TV Line. The numbers didn’t beat the season opener (4.5 million viewers), but the episode “The Bells and Whistles” did mark the best numbers since the premiere.
Here’s where we stand: Beginning April 6, the show will move to Saturday nights for the remainder of its season two run; although no decision has been made about the show’s ultimate fate, star Debra Messing has already booked a pilot for this fall, all but guaranteeing the show’s imminent doom.
But hey—at least there was one great performance from last night. Feast your eyes on Jeremy Jordan’s latest showstopper below!
