Nashville: One Less Episode for ABC Series

Nashville ABC TV showThere will be one less episode of Nashville, ABC’s country music dramatic series. The show will wrap its season after 21 episodes instead of the usual 22.

Accordng to TFC, the cut is being made because the show’s producers won’t be able to finish a full season of episodes in time for the May 22nd finale.

The 16 episodes that have aired so far have averaged a 1.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic with just over six million total viewers.

The series is hardly a hit for the network but it has a good shot at being renewed since all of the network’s other new dramas — Red Widow, 666 Park Avenue, Last Resort, and Zero Hour — have tanked.

The decision on Nashville’s fate will be made by May 14th, the date of ABC’s upfront presentation to advertisers.

What do you think? Are you sorry that there’s going to be one less episode of Nashville? Are you hoping that the series gets renewed?

    I love country music. Great songs on this show. It needs to be on every week without a break !! Get rid of Teddy’s phony girlfriend, she seems to be a stalker and suicidal and Teddy doesn’t need that he need to concentrate on his daughters and his career. Show has to be kept on ! It is one of the only 2 shows I watch.

    I love this show but what i dont like is all the darn commercials..last night i saw about 5 minutes of the show then a series of commercials for 4 minutes..boring..while i understand the need for commercials there were far too many last night..
    i also love the music and interaction of the characters. so hoping it doesnt get cancelled

    This is one of the best shows on TV, the music is great & it keeps you gussing as to what is going to happen next. It will be shameful if it gets cancelled.

    Love this show in a era when there is little TV to love
    And look forward to. It would be a shame- a tragedy- if abc
    Cut this great, well acted, fantastic writing, and
    One of the most entertaining shows on tv…. In
    Fact, if abc cancels. I will boycott the network
    For at least a year.
