Celebrity High-Five: Smash Star Megan Hilty's 5 Favorite TV Shows

Celebrity High-Five is a new, recurring feature in which we ask famous faces to list their top five TV shows. If you missed the inaugural installment, featuring comedian, actor, and Let's Make a Deal host Wayne Brady, you can check it out here.

For this latest edition of Celebrity High-Five, we welcome Megan Hilty, star of NBC's Smash. Hilty headlines the Broadway drama as Ivy Lynn, the veteran performer who's still trying to make big—and though her character is currently going through a bit of a rough patch, Hilty herself sounded as upbeat as ever when she emailed me her list of her five favorite TV shows. Read on to find out what she enjoys watching, and why each show made her list.


"I was totally hooked on this series. I got into it a little late so I bought all of the DVDs and watched the episodes back-to-back."

True Blood

"I've never really been into vampires and werewolves, but the drama that goes down on this show has turned me into a superfan!"


"This is the perfect comedy. I don't think it needs any more explanation!"

Six Feet Under

"The cast, acting, writing, direction—everything was perfect on this show!"

Saturday Night Live

"This has always been a favorite of mine. I'm particularly obsessed with the cast they have right now!"

What do you think of Megan's picks? Did any of them surprise you?

Smash airs Monday nights at 10pm on NBC.
