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.

What do you think? Do you like Nashville TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

This show is excellent and the music is fantastic. The network would be crazy to cancel it but seem to be doing their best to lose viewers with sporadic and erratic scheduling – this snow could, and should, run and run! Amazing cast, endless story arc options and wonderful soundtrack – what’s not to love?! Come on network – renew already

Please don’t cancel Nashville I lived in Nashville for years and it reminds me of home! It needs skittle more time and if u would stop showing reruns that would help when people see the reruns the don’t watch plus it doesn’t make good business so keep it fresh and we’ll keep watching its got an amazing cast!!!!

This show could be the NEW DYNASTY with a LONG running storyline for the faithful viewers IF ABC will STOP with showing a FEW shows then RERUNS and then a REPEAT of the SAME DOOMSDAY SCHEDULING THAT HAS BEEN DONE TO ONCE UPON A TIME AND SCANDAL. WE HAVE TO FIGHT FOR THE SHOWS THAT WE LOVE!!!!! GET ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND LET THE WORLD KNOW WHAT GREAT SHOWS ARE OUT HERE!!!! APPARENTLY I AM GOING TO HAVE TO START SCREAMING TO ANYONE WHO WILL WATCH THAT LOVES MUSIC AND FANTASTIC STORY LINES TO WATCH NASHVILLE! People have to DVR THESE SHOWS AND HAVE TO PICK & CHOOSE WHICH IS AVAILABLE ONLINE TO WATCH AND OR WHICH HOLDS OUR INTEREST! GRIMM is ANOTHER GREAT SHOW!!!! I LOVE THAT THESE SHOWS ARE WHAT WE WATCH FOR FAMILY TIME AND THE STORIES AND MUSIC LEAVE US WANTING MORE!!!! MORE YEARS OF NASHVILLE PLEASE????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS SHOW HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BE ABC’S DALLAS AND RUN FOR YEARS, WE JUST NEED MORE SHOWS FOR LONGER PERIODS OF TIME & SHORTER BREAKS. Whetting the appetite and making us wait too long for the next couple of shows will kill a shows ratings. WE LOVE NASHVILLE!!!!!! AND WE ARE LOYAL TO THE SHOW!!!!! PLEASE DON’T KILL IT WITH YOUR TYPICAL SCHEDULING WITH NOT ENOUGH SHOWS WITH TOO LONG OF A PERIOD OF TIME BETWEEN SEASONS!!!! <3 LOVE LOVE LOVE NASHVILLE & SCANDAL!!!!! CHICAGO FIRE IS FANTASTIC ALSO!!!!!! SOUTHLAND ALSO RATES ON THE TOP SCALE FOR BEST SHOWS EVER OFFERED FOR THE VIEWERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love Nashville!! I’m a huge country music fan so love the music. Also the characters. I hope it gets renewed. My only complaint is that you show too many repeats in the middle of the regular season.

Nashville is my favorite show on television right now. A definite guilty pleasure.
ABC would be crazy to not bring it back for a second season.

Please don’t cancel Nashville. It will need some time to completely catch on. Even Dallas took a while. What’s the problem Nashville next season should be a given.

I love the characters – I love the setting. But, sometimes the story lines could be improved.

But, I do love the show – and hope that is stays on the air – for a long time.

If you want good ratings show new shows , and give a good show a chance to create a new following. Nashville is a great show stop showing repeats and give it a chance .

Courtney March 28, 2013 at 9:02 pm

Their ratings would go up if they wouldn’t wait so long to show a new one! Plus, the fact that it comes on at 10pm isn’t good for us in the south. They should move it to 9pm instead, and keep it consistent every week. Love this show!!!!!!!!
