- Associated Press - Thursday, March 22, 2012

NEW YORK (AP) - NBC has smashing news for fans of "Smash."

The network said Thursday its musical drama series has been picked up for a second season.

"Smash" is a much-heralded blend of backstage procedural and song-and-dance numbers. It debuted last month. It is not a ratings smash but has won critical praise and a healthy-size audience averaging 7.7 million viewers.

Series stars include Debra Messing, Anjelica Huston and Katharine McPhee as players in the unrelenting world of Broadway theater.
