Posted Tuesday February 5, 2013 4:25 PM GMT

Taking care of some promotional appearances, Katharine McPhee showed up in New York City this morning (February 5).

The “American Idol” alum strolled over to the “Live with Kelly and Michael” studios to plug her television show “Smash,” now in its second season.

Earlier during her interview on “Today,” Katharine declared that the program is upping the ante this time around, including more craziness for her character Karen.

Ms. McPhee explained, "This season, season two, it's really exciting to see (Karen) take some initiative. She's now Marilyn (Monroe in the production,) she's going to -- hopefully -- go to Broadway, and she's finding another opportunity to start another show on the side."

So what can fans expect from Season Two? "No more drama! And when I say no more drama, I mean lots of drama!"
