NBC is moving "Smash" to a new night.

The musical drama, starring Katherine McPhee, will now air on Saturdays beginning April 6, the network announced Wednesday.

Now in its sophomore season, "Smash" has been struggling in the ratings. Its most recent airing drew less than 3 million viewers, per The Hollywood Reporter. Many are already speculating that this season will be the show's last.

But "Smash" is staying put for now -- it will air on Saturdays at 9 p.m. ET until the 17-episode season concludes, NBC said.

Other scheduling changes announced by the network include "Go On" moving to Thursdays at 9:30 p.m. for its last two episodes of the season (April 4 and 11); one-hour season finales for "Whitney" (March 27) and "The New Normal" (April 2); and "Celebrity Apprentice" extending to two hours beginning April 14.

"Ready for Love," an unscripted relationship series produced by Eva Longoria, will also premiere on April 9 after "The Voice."
