Smash star Katharine McPhee was beaming from ear to ear as she arrived at the Today show today.
The actress definitely has a lot to smile about as her new show premiered to big ratings last Monday. The drama-musical was the third-highest drama debut this season and had the biggest 10 p.m. ratings of any drama this season with 11.5 million viewers.
With a Louis Vuitton bag and a gorgeous black coat, Katharine was relishing in her new role as a TV star.
Katharine said on Today, "Since I’ve come off Idol and before Idol I’ve been pounding away as an actress, and you try to get people to see you in a different light.”
She may have finally gotten her wish! Seems like American Idol was a million years ago doesn't it?
Catch the second episode of Smash tonight on NBC at 10 p.m. ET!
