Whether you've enjoyed watching "Smash" or just live to "hate-watch" it, there was something for everyone in Tuesday night's season premiere, including a lot of changes.
It was also a roller-coaster ride of an opener, with its fair share of high points and lows. Here's a breakdown:

Liza Minnelli will star as herself on the NBC drama, which chronicles the backstage happenings of a Marilyn Monroe-inspired musical, in an episode called "The Surprise Party" that's slated to air in the spring.
Fox's "New Girl" has not only become one of this season's success stories, but it's also introduced a character that has, in some ways unexpectedly, become one of the most talked about of the year.
