Quote of the Day
"NBC has been in last place for years, because they don’t know what the hell they’re doing, but now they finally have a new and exciting plan for climbing out of the cellar. And that plan is to rip off ‘Glee’. So last night ‘Smash’ premiered, and began the tale of two actresses fighting it out to play Marilyn Monroe in a Broadway play. In one corner, there’s young, inexperienced Broadway dreamer Karen Cartwright (Katharine McPhee) and in the next is Ivy Lynn (Megan Hilty), a stage veteran who is more than ready for her chance to shine. And now there’s a whole 'Team Karen' and 'Team Ivy' movement so people can support their favorite. So which team are you? Who do you think should get that part? That was rhetorical of course, and please believe me when I tell you that if you answered it, I hate you."
