Too Little Too Late? NBC's 'Smash' Gets Time-Slot Upgrade EW

NBC's "Smash" has been given a last-minute reprieve from its Saturday night time slot. The show’s second-season finale will be moved to a Sunday slot, reports EW.com's Inside TV.

NBC, which recently relegated the struggling musical drama to Saturdays in a move from its Tuesday time period, said the show's two-hour season finale will air Sunday, May 26, at 9 p.m. ET. The finale might also serve as the show's series finale.

"While 'Smash' fans may take this as an encouraging sign, don’t be fooled -- 'Smash's’ dismal ratings, coupled with its sky-high budget, all but ensure a cancellation," the story says.
