NBC's SMASH fell in ratings again last night, dropping 22 percent- a new series low for the show. The musical drama, which aired 10-11pm, brought in 2.6 million viewers overall and a 0.7/2 rating in 18-49.
In last night's episode titled 'The Read-Through,' Ivy (Megan Hilty) realizes her triumph might not be all she hoped when she meets her new co-star, Terry Falls (guest star Sean Hayes) and Julia's (Debra Messing) fears increase when Tom (Christian Borle) airs his suspicions of Peter (guest star Daniel Sunjata).
Meanwhile, Jimmy (Jeremy Jordan) and Kyle (Andy Mientus) confront their own crisis of confidence as "Hit List" is read for the first time and Karen (Katharine McPhee) wonders if she can trust Jimmy. Anjelica Huston, Jack Davenport and Krysta Rodriguez also star. Daniel Sunjata and Nikki Blonsky also guest starred.
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.
