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?

    They should bring it back and be more consistent with airing episodes so we can stay connected and not have to wonder when it will be back. This is not the kinda show that you can take off for weeks and weeks.

    Its too bad the network kept airing repeat after repeat. One has to wonder, “What were they thinking?” It’s a good show and quite entertaining. I absolutely detest sitcom’s. Enough already! I see all these posts indicating they “LOVE” this show…hopefully that will be enough for the network ‘higher-ups’ to pull their heads out of where the sun doesn’t shine and renew this series. This show is the ONLY regular network channel I watch-I don’t even watch the news…I get that all online or on a different cable network. WAKE UP ABC! If you sign-on a new show, at least give it all you’ve got in promoting it instead of sabotaging it every week. So, I said all that to say this: Yes, I am disapointed there will be one less show. Of course I am. It’s a great show…now if only ABC could see that.

    LOVE, LOVE LOVE this show. The same as many people love this show. I never watch TV except for watching this show. Nothing can interfere with my Wednesday nights, as I won’t miss this show. Disappointed that they will be one show short. I can handle the one show now being filmed, but please do not cancel the show. There would be many disappointed people.

    Love, love , love this show!!! This is by far the best show on TV, so I hope you bring it back. I’m not aboe to watch it “Live,” and I’m sure others can’t either, so hopefully you factor DVR, On Demand, and Hulu Plus viewings in your ranking. Thanks!!

    I LOVE THE SHOW. It is the only thing I watch on TV. The music is wonderful. I have volume 1 of the songs. Where can I get the words to those songs.

    I would be upset if Nashville didn’t get renewed for another season. It’s an awesome show and the characters make it seem so real.
