Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

I love the show! Connie and Hayden are wonderful, and the Austrailian singer is very good as well. (Scarlett). It does drag just a bit, but over all I love it, and the music, although I don’t this music is really ‘country.’ This is sort of another version of FNL set in Nashville.

I LOVE NASHVILLE. Please KEEP it. Weren’t the baseball playoffs on then? Give it a chance til after the games are over. It reminds me of Dallas only with the country music background, power, money, etc. Great Show! I want to see MORE!

It’s nothing but a hick soap opera and not even well done. The three women can’t sing worth a darn and every character is just a cardboard cut-out. Nothing creative or original here and hey, I know the city of Nashville and the country music industry like the back of my hand and this is not flattering to either. I only watched this back in June as part of marketing research and they had to pay me to watch this garbage.

Nashville is good , BUT I HATE THE STUPID NARATIONS. We see her lick her lips, walk around the counter ETC

If the NARATIONS stay they we stop watching, it is annoying when
Watching the program
