I see they are premiering with a 2 hour show and moving to Tuesday. Thoughts?

My first thought after hearing that was that they were premiering in February with an episode running 2 hours long.

My other though was that I still want to see Ivy either hit by a bus, fall down an elevator shaft or turn into a zombie.

If she turns into a zombie, it would be so boring. They just ended the season with zombie Marilyn.

No, not like boring zombie Ivy, more like vicious blood pouring out of her mouth screeching non stop zombie Ivy.

Karen is and will always be the only zombie on the show!

She's more like The Mummy to me.

My immediate thoughts?:
How many drinks can Anjelica Huston throw in 2 hours?
How many scarf changes will Debra Messing have in the first 30 minutes alone?
How many times will we hear people insisting that Karen's voice is a ray of sunshine directly from Buddha?
How many times will we hear "That's so Marilyn" during the show?
Will "That's So Marilyn" become a spinoff show on Disney Channel ala That's So Raven?
Will Megan Hilty FINALLY get to play an emotion or action other than anger, jealousy, spoiled brat or eavesdropping through a rehearsal door?
How smashed should I be before Smash?

And then, after all of those, what am I doing on Feb. 5 and if I'm not free can I get someone to DVR the premiere for me? My frenemy relationship with this show knows no bounds.

My first thought was "how can I possibly survive 2 hours of Smash without wanting to kill myself?".

Katherine McPhee is the most life-like animatronic that I've ever seen. It's just the eyes...they can never get them quite right, can they?

Wait until the first episode starts with Angelica Houston and Uma Thurman in bed scissoring.

Why does everyone have to be so negative about this show? No one is forcing you to watch it and personally, I find it incredibly entertaining. It's a much better musical TV show than Glee, in my opinion. I feel as though people feel the need the over analyze EVERYTHING these days. If you don't enjoy it, don't watch it and don't comment on it. The only problem I have with this show is Katherine McPhee but that's just my opinion. Otherwise I believe it is a very well written TV show even though it may not replicate exactly what happens when creating a Broadway musical.

Seriously greenguy? Personally I think Katharine McPhee is the best thing about it.
Ivy/Megab makes me want to throw things at the tv.
Debra's part is bland.
Anjelica's appearance intrigues me, in a 'is she really a she?' kinda way.
And the rest are very forgettable.

Katherine McPhee is very good. I never doubt for a second that Karen is a robot zombie and that's thanks to her very convincing performance.

Remember that pilot that had Nobert Leo Butz snorting cocaine off a Wicked playbill?

That is what I want to see in SMASH.

I just think Katherine acts far too naive and innocent and it just comes off as fake. There's no way someone who acts like her would ever get into professional musical theatre. To make it big in that business you have to have a backbone. I don't think it's the writer's fault at all, though. I think the way she holds herself and the tone in her voice is way too innocent. The writing for everyone else's part is great and incredibly thought-provoking, especially Anjelica Houston's character.

"It's a much better musical TV show than Glee, in my opinion. I feel as though people feel the need the over analyze EVERYTHING these days."

Which is exactly what anybody who likes Glee would say you're doing. Just so you know.

I hate Glee, love SMASH and think the jokes here are funny.

"How many scarf changes will Debra Messing have in the first 30 minutes alone?"

I read the afghan scarves were cut from the new season. So what exactly besides Tom does Julia still have this season?

I like Glee for what it is and I like this show too. Nashville is probably a better comparison for Smash in what the shows are trying to do with their subject and backdrop.

I hope she doesn't have the fetus it was strongly implied she had at the end of the season.

The first season had some inconsistent script writing. I hope that it does not happen again especially because of how talented this cast is.
