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?

I don’t even like country and I think this show is good. I just recently started watching it and caught up on it on Hulu. Just got the wife hooked too. Hope it lasts.

Please keep this show alive! I love everything about it! It seems like every good show has to add weird things to it, except this one. It has such a good mix of drama & country music. Scarlett & Gunner’s story needs to be explored more. Their voices are beautiful. I totally disagree that we could listen to country music radio, instead of this.

It seems that this kind of show is too boring for people. All America wants to see is disgusting sinful stuff. It’s sickening.

Let Nashville die on its own. We could use better programs. and better ideas. Ppl who like this can listen to Country music radio. Otherwise the show is a dud.

I LOVE this new show and my teenage daughters and I can watch this together – the story is ever changing and keeps us watching – are there new shows coming or just repeats?
