I watched the season finale of Smash last week, a full month after it aired. Never before has a show I’ve watched grown so terrible in such a small window of time. The first episode had me pumping my fist in the air in deranged former theater kid excitement; the fifteenth had me periodically shouting “THIS IS AWFUL!” out loud to the screen. There are many reasons why this promising show turned out to be a complete abomination, but probably the most glaring is the fact that somebody in charge thought that we, the viewers, would consider it reasonable that any Broadway director would prefer the soulless Katharine McPhee to the amazing Megan Hilty in the role of Marilyn Monroe.

Yes, this.
