TV's Gayest Show Preps for Series Finale
Stefon, SNL's gayest character, recently told Weekend Update's Seth Meyers, "This job writing for Smash is killing me." Ha! Smash also just won Outstanding Drama Series at Saturday's GLAAD Awards. In other words, it might just be the gayest show on television.
The making of a Broadway musical about Marilyn Monroe! Songs by partners Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman! Will & Grace's Debra Messing! Guest stars like Bernadette Peters and Jennifer Hudson!
Unfortunately, it's also an epic ratings disaster that NBC will soon banish to Saturday nights, where networks often send struggling shows to die quietly.
“We’re all aware the show is not successful," out showrunner Josh Safran tells TVLine. He also reveals that the upcoming season finale, episode 17, “was constructed as a series finale.”
OK, so we'll find out what happens to gay characters like witty composer Tom Levitt (Christian Borle), adorable bookwriter Kyle Bishop (Andy Mientus; pictured left), and sassy chorus boy Bobby (Wesley Taylor; pictured right)?
“I don’t want [viewers] to think they are going to be left hanging, because they won’t be,” Safran continues. “The season has a beginning, middle and an end… [And] it just gets better and better."
Will you stick with Smash until its final curtain call?
