Smash April 20

The Smash finale airs tonight. No show has been a bigger punching bag for critics or our commenters this season, as it lost over half of its first season audience, then was exiled from Tuesdays to Saturday nights, where its ratings fell even further, and it suffered the humiliation of being beaten by reruns and Bet on Your Baby.Its most recent episode on May 11 scored a paltry 0.4 adults 18-49 rating. However,the show has earned over 100 percent gains in the Live + 7 ratings, meaning that the majority of Smash fans do not watch it on Saturdays. (Perhaps they are too busy attending live theater?) So its ratings have the potential to rise tonight, when it airs in the higher profile Sunday 9-11PM timeslot, facing nothing but reruns and NASCAR (which presumably has a very different audience). How do you think it will do? Make your predictions.
