NBC to Air 2-Hour SMASH Finale 5/26!

NBC will air the Season 2 finale of SMASH on a special night and time. The two-hour episode is scheduled for Sunday, May 26 from 9:00-11:00PM ET. The scheduling marks yet another programming change for the struggling musical drama which was recently moved from its original Tuesday night time slot to Saturdays at 8:00 pm.

Last Saturday night's episode titled 'Opening Night' tied its series low with a 0.4 adults in the 18-49 demographic, placing even with the April 13th broadcast. Week to week, however, "Smash" was up 4 percent in total viewers (1.908 million this week vs. 1.839 million on 4/13).

As previously announced, the series will air Saturdays at 8:00/7:00c through May 11.

Upcoming highlights in April/May:

THE PRODUCERS

An off-the-rail Jimmy (Jeremy Jordan) threatens "Hit List's" future, as Karen (Katharine McPhee), Derek (Jack Davenport), Ana (Krysta Rodriguez) and Kyle (Andy Mientus) try to help him before something bad happens. Tom (Christian Borle) and Julia's (Debra Messing) partnership is strained to the breaking point just as Ivy (Megan Hilty), Eileen (Anjelica Huston), and the entire "Bombshell" team are running themselves ragged to outshine the competition. Kathie Lee Gifford and Jesse L. Martin guest star.

THE TRANSFER

With his sights set on the Tony, Tom (Christian Borle) pulls out all the stops at a Houston & Levitt tribute night, but can Julia (Debra Messing) turn away from "Hit List" long enough to help? Ivy (Megan Hilty) is afraid of damaging her reputation when Tom asks her to perform a risqué number. The cast of "Hit List" is rocked by a betrayal close to home.

THE NOMINATIONS / THE TONYS

It's a crucial moment for both shows as Tony nominations loom, but keeping your eye on the prize can be hard. As Tom (Christian Borle) crosses an influential Tony voter and Ivy (Megan Hilty) copes with some very distracting news, Derek's (Jack Davenport) past has repercussions for the entire "Hit List" team. On Tony night, the awards might not provide the answers everyone is looking for. As Jimmy (Jeremy Jordan) faces a final reckoning, Tom (Christian Borle), Julia (Debra Messing), Derek (Jack Davenport), Karen (Katharine McPhee), Ivy (Megan Hilty), and most of all, Eileen (Anjelica Huston) wait to see if the ceremony will confirm their place in the Broadway pantheon once and for all. Rosie O'Donnell, Cheyenne Jackson, Ron Rifkin, and Bernadette Peters guest star.

According to the NBC Network, the Season 2 finale of SMASH will air on a special night and time. The two-hour episode is scheduled for Sunday, May 26 from 9:00-11:00PM ET. The scheduling marks yet another programming change for the struggling musical drama which was recently moved from its original Tuesday night time slot to Saturdays at 8:00 pm.

Season 2 has welcomed such guest stars as Bernadette Peters, Jeremy Jordan, Jennifer Hudson, Liza Minnelli and Kathy Lee Gifford in addition to series regulars Christian Borle, Debra Messing, Katharine McPhee and Megan Hilty.

In the current season, the "Bombshell" team is one step closer to achieving their Broadway dream. The Boston run was the success the team was hoping for, including producer Eileen Rand, writers Tom Levitt and Julia Houston last-minute star Karen Cartwright and director Derek Wills but, they all find out that even a charmed show cannot avoid paying for sins of the past.
