SMASH Ratings Take Dip Against Tough Competition

Related: SMASH, NBC

Ratings for the second episode of the new season of SMASH took a dip last night as the show aired against some tough network competition. The NBC musical drama was pitted against the season premieres of ABC's popular crime drama Body Of Proof and The CW thriller Cult.

The episode delivered 3.3 million viewers and a 0.9 rating among adults 18-49 at 10 p.m., a decline of 25 percent from the series's two-hour premiere two weeks ago. The two-week gap in broadcasts caused by last week's State of the Union address almost certainly played a role in the disappointing numbers.

In last night's episode titled 'The Dramaturg', partnerships were tested as Eileen (Anjelica Huston) asked Tom (Christian Borle) and Julia (Debra Messing) to contend with an unwelcome new collaborator, while Jimmy (Jeremy Jordan) and Kyle (Andy Mientus) prepared to present their work for the first time.

Derek (Jack Davenport) attempted to get Ronnie (guest star Jennifer Hudson) back on his side. Ivy (Megan Hilty) found it hard to move on, but help from an old friend took her one step closer to her dream. Katharine McPhee also starred.

About SMASH:

From Universal Television in association with DreamWorks Television, "Smash" stemmed from an idea of executive producer and multiple Emmy and Oscar winner Steven Spielberg ("ER," "Schindler's List"). The series' executive producers also include Joshua Safran ("Gossip Girl"), Craig Zadan and Neil Meron (Oscar-winning "Chicago," "Hairspray"), Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey ("United States of Tara," "The Borgias"), Tony and Grammy Award winners Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman ("Hairspray," "Catch Me If You Can"), Jim Chory ("Heroes," "American Dreams") and Theresa Rebeck.
