The good news is, NBC’s Smash was up 43 percent from last week’s ratings. The bad news is, it still only nabbed a 1.0 rating/3 share in the coveted 18-49 demographic, and 3.1 million viewers, according to The Wrap. And it’s still moving to Saturdays, starting April 6. Meanwhile, ABC’s Splash dropped 38 percent from last week for a rating of a 1.6/5, but still earned 6.7 million total viewers. So everything’s relative.
