The Question, Saturday 4/6/13: Is Saturday Night All Right For Smashing?


Happy Smash-urday, everyone! Tonight the sophomore NBC drama Smash moves into its final resting place. Have to hand it to them, I wasn't sure they could publicly admit the failure of what was once labeled an "unqualified success" and move it into true burn-off territory. But perhaps we are now evolved enough that leaving it on Tuesday was actually the greater embarrassment. Still, NBC will have to endure one week of "Wow, look at how awful these Saturday ratings are!" before everyone pretty much forgets about it. Is Saturday night all right for Smashing? That's The Question for Saturday, April 6, 2013.

Smash This Season Previous Saturday Burn-offs
1.2 (premiere, Tuesday 2/5/13)
0.94 (average)
0.7 -> 1.0 -> 0.9 (last three eps)
0.3 -> 0.3/0.3 -> 0.4/0.4 (Made in Jersey)
0.5 -> 0.6 (The Mob Doctor)
0.5 -> 0.4 -> 0.4... (The Firm)

It faces CBS' high-rated Final Four basketball, but it might have a somewhat reasonable-for-Saturday lead-in with a The Voice repeat. My pick is 0.4, but I'm afraid that most people will congregate on the 0.4 side whether I choose 0.35 or 0.45. Still, probabilistically speaking, I give it a pretty good shot to either drop to 0.3 or eke out a 0.5. So I'm trying something new.

Choose: 0.4 or "The Field." (Reply with "0.4" if you think it gets a 0.4, or "The Field" if you think it gets anything other than 0.4.)

The Field, just because the odds of winning are higher. If I had to guess, 0.4 would actually be it.

The Field. Even though going against the grain just worked so well for me...

0.4 was my guess this morning, and I'm sticking with it.
