Smash - The new Glee?

I am just going to say this...I loved it!  I just watched the new musical show on NBC, Smash, and I really and truly loved it.  You've seen the promos, Katherine McPhee (of Idol fame) singing Beautiful on a stage alone (you know that song stays in your head all day...earworms D&O?) and then cut to her looking like Marilyn.  Well the show started last night and I could not stop watching.  OK, the show does start at 10:00 so I did not watch until today (girl needs her beauty sleep) but it was impressive.

The premise, a new Broadway show about Marilyn and 2 girls vying for the lead, plus all of the people involved in putting on the show.  Its so nice to have Grace Adler (Debra Messing) back on television and I actually like Katherine McPhee a lot.  The rest are still a blur (except Anjelica Huston and she scares me a little) but I will get to know them quickly. 

Remember when Glee first came out and everyone was so excited?  This is how I feel right now.  I am a true Musical Theater person and I am fascinated by this new concept.  Let me know what you thought or if you watched.

I liked it, though I'm not feeling McPhee. She's always seemed very cold and calculating to me in her singing, and I felt that last night with her acting.
Megan Hilty as the other Marilyn, however, I love.

I think with KM, that is why I wrote that I liked her. I was not a fan of hers on American Idol because I think she acted above it all but I did like her in the show. Plus I have seen House Bunny and she was cute in that...
