Finally, some good (non-Super Bowl) news for NBC! The musical drama "Smash" debuted Monday following "The Voice" with 11.5 million viewers and a 3.8 rating in the 18-49 demo.

The show stars Debra Messing (Will & Grace"), Anjelica Huston and Katharine McPhee ("American Idol"), and is about the creation of a Broadway musical on the life of Marilyn Monroe.
