The moment is here for Smash fans and characters alike as Bombshell faces its first major audience. From the looks of these pics from next week's episode of Smash, "Previews", it looks like there will be a lot of serious drama going on off-stage as well. If you check out the latest ratings, it looks like there is probably some drama going on in NBC's halls as well with Smash continuing to sink in the ratings. 1/85 Share and 5.3 million viewers for last night's episode, for you number geeks. I know a lot of people don't 'get it', but come on; Smash is a well produced show with some great story telling and a spectacular cast—and that is something I thought I'd never say, so that should tell you something.
Combine the visual clues of the promo pics with this NBC sanctioned preview of Smash "Previews" and you'll probably have a pretty good idea of some of the major drama surrounding Bombhell and a particular actor's crisis. The end result is pretty clear to see, I think, with a casting change for Smash that a lot of people have seen coming, let alone hoped for. So what do you think? Care to guess at the outcome of all this?
