The third episode of "Smash" this season shows one bright spot amongst too many familiar complaints.

Finally, “Smash” is going somewhere that satisfies the audience this week: real drama falls on the play writer Julia and the new character Peter, a dramaturg, which will probably refresh and re-explore Bombshell.

Review: Now 25, pop singer Aaron Carter invited fans to the After Party at The Westcott Theater on Sunday Feb. 24.

Aaron Carter diehards waited for six hours outside The Westcott Theater in the snow and rain on Sunday afternoon, just so they could be front and center for The After Party Tour.

Their wait was well worth it.

Catherine Sasso lined up with two friends outside the Westcott around 1 p.m. hoping that she’d get a peek at Carter when his van pulled up.

NBC's musical drama Smash entered its second season last week with a new show runner and the same big aspirations.

The new season of Smash returned with a two-hour episode last Tuesday which is ambitious yet feckless.

The finale of season one ended with Karen (Katharine McPhee) staring as Marilyn Monroe on stage in “Bombshell,” a musical about Monroe, while her counterpart Ivy (Megan Hilty) began taking pills after being replaced by Karen.
