Smith will stream on Web
Smith's got a new alias, and it's a URL.
CBS has announced it will burn off the remaining episodes of the Ray Liotta crime show on its Innertube broadband Web site. Additionally, the producers of Smith will offer a written synopsis of how they planned on finishing out the season.
Smith premiered to mediocre ratings and quickly fell in successive airings, prompting CBS to pull the plug after three weeks. The three previously aired episodes and the four unaired episodes of Smith will run on Innertube free, starting today, for the next four weeks.
Smith was created by West Wing executive producer John Wells and starred Ray Liotta as the leader of a crime ring. The series also starred Virginia Madsen as Liotta's wife and Jonny Lee Miller as a member of the team.
The Internet is becoming the go-to place for failed series. Earlier this week CBS announced it would put passed-on pilot The Papdits on Innertube, and last week NBC said pulled show Kidnapped would finish out its days at NBC.com.
