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?

Love Nashville but too many re-runs. Let’s get some new episodes and renew the show for the next season

This show is fantastic. The charcters are believable and I like how no one character’sstory line is ever dragging. It’s so fast-moving that if toy miss one episode, you’re lost. I like that because it keeps me interested in every show. But, I agree with WAY TOO MANY reruns. Some weeks I shower and snuggle in for the show only to find its a rerun. Ugh!
