Nashville: Season One Ratings

Nashville ABC ratingsWill Nashville fare better in the ratings than ABC’s quickly cancelled Cop Rock series? The critics have sung this new show’s praises but we’ll have to wait to see if the viewers agree and if they’ll keep watching.

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.

Nashville is wonderful!! We really enjoy watching it and hearing the music. Then cast does a great job and the story lines keep going. SO refreshing to not have more violent, reality or fantasy shows.

I love this program Nashville, it is on late on the West Coast but I still love it and watch it.
It makes me so mad first they take off Pan Am and now this. I don’t watch TV hardly at all since all there is on there is garbage reality shows which are sicking. Nachville is the first show that is really good, you take it off and I will not watch that channel for anything ever again. My friends and family also feel this way. Keep it going. Some people don’t watch it since it is in the wrong time slot. You always take off good programs shame on you.

Love this show and love to hear Scarlett sing. I love shows about real life and not murders and who did it. I hate those kind of shows to goarry. Love Last Man Standing, Malibu country and anything that does not deal with murders.
