Nashville Star information

According to JimIn an age when there are hundreds of television channels, there’s a decent chance that you’ll be able to find a TV show that you like to watch. Unfortunately, with economics being what they are, there’s also a really good chance that it will be cancelled. The network execs have to answer to their stockholders and are less and less likely to take time to let shows grow an audience. Or, if the size of a series’ audience declines, they often have to axe them as well.

Here’s a “quick” listing of shows that won’t be back for the 2009 — 2010 TV season. If your favorite is on the list, you have our sympathies.

2008 – 2009 Cancelled Shows: NBC Cancels 10 Television Series

March 13, 2009
The peacock network recently unveiled their plans for the Summer months. Two disaster mini-series and three new scripted shows will debut. They'll be joined by a new version of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! and Great American Road Trip. Law & Order: Criminal Intent will return to the network as will NBC's perennial hit America's Got Talent. While there are lots of new shows in the network's future, it's been confirmed that there are even more that won't be returning. The unlucky shows are American Gladiators, America's Toughest Jobs, The Baby Borrowers, Celebrity Circus, Celebrity Family Feud (hosted by The Today Show's Al Roker), Fear Itself (directed by Stuart Gordon, Brad Anderson, John Landis, and Rob Schmidt), Last Comic Standing (hosted by Jay Mohr, Anthony Clark, Bill Bellamy, and Fearne Cotton), Momma's Boys (Co-produced by American Idol's Ryan Seacrest), Most Outrageous Moments, and Nashville Star. And now, for the details... American Gladiators -- A revival of the 1989 syndicated game show, this series pits amateur athletes against "gladiators" in contests of strength and agility. When NBC announced its year-round schedule last April, Gladiators was set to return for season three in Summer 2009. In the meantime, the series performed poorly in the ratings and execs changed their minds about its future. It's been rumored that Gladiators may eventually return but it won't be on NBC. TV show dates: January 6 -- August 4, 2008.

This talent competition pits aspiring country musicians against one another as they compete for three big prizes: a pick-up truck, a performance at the Grand Ole Opry, and a recording contract. Each week, contestants prepare and perform a song for a live audience and a panel of celebrity judges (who also act as mentors). Judges have included writer Robert K. Oermann, director of artist development Tracy Gershon, singer/songwriter Charlie Robison, country radio DJ Billy Greenwood, vocal duo The Warren Brothers, songwriter Phil Vassar, music producer Anastasia Brown, rock musician Bret Michaels, singer Randy Owen, country star Blake Shelton, singer/songwriter Jeffrey Steele, singer John Rich and singer/songwriter Jewel.


This "docu-soap" follows a group of young musicians as they try to make it big in the music and social scenes of Nashville, Tennessee. The cast includes recently signed Sony/BMG recording artist Chuck Wicks and his behind-the-scenes team, including Monty Powell; Matt Jenkins, who has been dropped by his record label and is striving to sign with another; Rachel Bradshaw, a Belmont University junior who wants to succeed without the help of her family's name; Sarah Gunsolus, Rachel's best friend who is determined to use Nashville's social scene to help her get connected to the music scene; Songwriter of the Year award winner Jamey Johnson; aspiring singer/songwriters Lindsey Hager and Jeff Allen; Clint Moseley, an executive at his father's jet sales company who is not following a music career; and Mika Combs, the Kentucky native who recently arrived in Nashville to follow her dreams.
