It’s time for a winter round up of America’s favorite pastime—Television! 

Smash- for fans of Glee, but more mature

The lights!  The hairspray!  The—Debra Messing!  Think of Smash as Glee all grown-up.  The show pits rookie actress Karen (Katherine McPhee) against experienced theatre veteran Ivy (Megan Hilty), in a competition for the career-making role of Marilyn Monroe in a new Broadway musical.  And what’s better, the musical is being written by the Will and Grace-esque team of Julia (Debra Messing) and Tom (Christian Borle).  While the show does have its dose of glitzy musical numbers, there is a much more dramatic side to it, as well.  In the first two episodes alone, the audience was introduced to subplots including adoption, divorce, scandal, and heartbreak.  Now that’s what I call a television show!  Watch Smash on NBC Monday nights at 10:00pm.
