After a long break, " Smash " returned with a two-hour premiere that went out of its way to emphasize how much it had changed since the first season.

Suddenly, she's a known commodity while Ivy has become the veritable nobody lost in her shadow.

In the Season 2 premiere of " Smash " (Tuesdays, 10 p.m. EST on NBC), viewers met a number of new characters, but chances are the one that made the biggest impression was Jeremy Jordan's Jimmy, the belligerent barman who had an undeniable spark with Karen (Katharine McPhee).

If NBC's "Smash" really was a Broadway musical, it would return to New York now, its problems fixed on the road.The second season, launching Tuesday, Feb. 5, sheds plots that alienated fans and features new guest stars including Sean Hayes and Liza Minnelli. In the first three episodes, Jennifer Hudson sings amazing solos.New characters include Jimmy and Kyle (stage actors Jeremy Jordan and Andy Mientus), who are writing the musical "Hit List." Tune in just to hear Jordan belt; it proves why he's a Broadway star."Smash" is an odd hybrid -- a TV musical drama. It focuses on the behind-the-scenes work of mounting a Broadway musical. In this case, it's "Bombshell," about Marilyn Monroe.The first season had Ivy (Megan Hilty), the seasoned Broadway chorine, competing against Karen (Katharine McPhee), the ingenue, to play Marilyn.

Over the first season, ingénues Karen and Ivy tried to out-diva each other for the main role while juggling messy love lives, lyricist Julia ( Debra Messing ) cheated on... http://www.tvguide.com/News/Smash-Season2-Josh-Safran-1060345.aspx?rss=breakingnews
