In a move that surprised literally no one, NBC finally pulled the plug on struggling musical drama Smash. After two seasons of constant shake-ups, problematic plotlines, and lackluster ratings, the network canceled the Broadway-based series starring Katherine McPhee on Friday afternoon.

After Smash‘s move to Saturday nights mid-season this year, the cancelation was sad yet expected. The two-hour season – now series – finale airs on a special night, Sunday May 26. Let’s hope the series doesn’t end on a cliffhanger!

Writer Sydney Bucksbaum likes to think her hobby of watching insane amounts of TV isn't an obsession... it's not an obsession, okay, so just drop it! As the resident CW-lover on the Hollywood.com staff, she truly believes her Clark Kent/Dean Winchester/Damon Salvatore/Lucas Scott/Oliver Queen/Chuck Bass/Seymour Birkhoff/Wade Kinsella/Vincent Keller/Micah Barnes is out there somewhere, waiting for her, in real life (just go with it). After graduating from Northwestern University with a degree in journalism, Sydney has made it her mission to campaign for more shirtless scenes for her favorite CW hunks. You're welcome.
