NBC/NHL Stanley Cup spots like catnip for hockey fans

Maybe it happened while you weren’t watching.  But professional hockey has become a very big business on television over the past several years.

NBC’s “Smash” ratings decline in Chicago. Again.

We said we’d keep you updated on the ratings story for the heavily-hyped NBC prime time series “Smash.”  And we are.

“Smash” is the show — executive produced by film legend Steven Spielberg — that purports to be a behind-the-scenes saga of life in the Broadway theater world.

Episode three of the series aired Monday, and the Nielsen overnight ratings for that edition of “Smash” in Chicago — a theater town of some magnitude — have declined again, after also dropping for episode two.

Chicago’s NBC ‘Smash’ ratings okay but not great

Is “Smash” a smash hit?  We know you’ve been wondering about that in the wake of the show’s debut and all the attendant hype.

Executive produced by movie legend Steven Spielberg, “Smash” purports to take us behind the scenes and show the development of a new Broadway musical about Marilyn Monroe, even as it introduces us to a varied  collection of theater people who are involved in the musical project.

NBC executives are pushing hard to put the best possible spin on the all-important overnight ratings for “Smash” after its first two weeks on the air.

Spielberg-produced NBC show a “Smash”-ing disaster

Let’s just say it flat out.  “Smash” is a train wreck of a show like few others we’ve ever endured on TV. And get ready.  It’s headed right at us in Chicago on Monday, Feb 6., the day AFTER the Super Bowl.

In case you haven’t heard (though you should have, given the enormity of the hype this hopeless mess has already received), “Smash” is the new NBC prime time series that takes us behind the scenes to meet key characters involved in the creation of a new Broadway musical about Marilyn Monroe (cue the music!).
