Nashville: Cancelled Quickly or a Big Hit?

Last season’s Revenge wasn’t a big hit in the ratings but escaped being cancelled in the Wednesdays at 10pm timeslot. Will this season’s Nashville fare any better for ABC? Will it garner big ratings or will it be quickly cancelled instead — like CBS’ Made in Jersey? Perhaps a moderate success instead?

Nashville takes a behind the scenes look at the world of country music. One singing star (Connie Britton) is seeing her popularity decline and is struggling to adapt to a new age while an up-and-comer (Hayden Panettiere) is learning to understand the life of a celebrity. The cast of this new ABC drama also includes Powers Boothe, Charles Esten, Eric Close, Clare Bowen, Jonathan Jackson, Sam Palladio, Robert Wisdom, and Judith Hoag.

The show airs on Wednesday nights at 10pm, running opposite CSI on CBS and Chicago Fire on NBC.

    Nashville is one of my favorite shows! I hope they don’t cancel it. I love, love, love the country music, the stories and histories behinds the stars. The decisions they made and the consequences that haunt them yet years later are true to life. I think it’s a smash, and it’s relatively non-violent! Not a lot of gun fire, for a change. A few fist fights here and there and some plolitical wheeling and dealing. But it’s a refreshing drama that’s not full of gun fire! I enjoy the music, and a nice mix or both male and female talent.

    This is the best show on TV. The singing is wonderful, the story line is excellent. I don’t know anyone who is not watching this. Everyone loves it. Are these networks for REAL? God I can’t even comprehend that they would even for one second consider it. Wake up. When you have a hit, leave it be.

    ……………hope the show does well,from what the first 2 episodes have shown though, it’s got flop written all over it. Nashville is a song writers town,and this was a chance to really show off,too bad the writers/producers didn’t choose to use the show as a venue to showcase all the incredible talent we have in town, the shallow cliche driven plot bears little resemblance to the reality of the real Nashville, ..and don’t even get me started on the lackluster/D grade quality of the singers and songs……….. Nashville is alive and well……..but this show ?…………… not what I would have expected from someone with the past success in film and the music connections she has…………..rather disappointing.
