It's one thing to know, intellectually, that ratings bed-shitter Smash probably wouldn't get renewed for a third season. It's another to be going through your various feeds, still reeling from the news that Happy Endings had been cancelled, and get gut-punched with the fulfillment of the fears you didn't want to give voice to: Smash had been killed too.
Elisabeth Kübler-Ross defined five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and finally acceptance. But for a loss as great as Smash will be, five stages are definitely not sufficient. We still have a couple more episodes before Smash's finale, but it's good to be prepared: here's what we think you'll be going through come May 26, when-- wait a minute. NBC scheduled the Smash finale opposite the premiere of Behind The Candelabra AND the entire fourth season of Arrested Development?! Jesus.
