ABC’s musical nighttime soap Nashville has had some major music guest stars in its four season on the air. Pop and country music stars like have made appearances on the show. Now, it looks like Nashville has gotten a true, heavy-hitting music legend to grace the small screen for them.
Early renewals have been a trend on network television this season (although they’ve been common on cable and subscription cable channels for a while). On the opposite end of the spectrum, early cancellations haven't come as quickly, with shows like Blood & Oil seeing their episode orders cut rather than axed right away.
This spring, we’ve culled through all of the big TV shows on the major networks and have come up with a list of programs that are hurting in the ratings and very well may not be on the schedule when the new season kicks off. Here's what we know.
Television has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years, leaving many shows to work in water cooler moments to keep fans talking. And ABC's Nashville just hit us with a doozy last night.
Traditional cable and network TV outlets still very much rely on ratings to nab advertising dollars. So, we’ve decided to take a look at what shows are already faltering in those ratings this fall, looking only at programs that very well could be cancelled by the end of the season.
Usually when a TV series builds up a character to be one of the sleaziest people in the medium, that person is kept around until well past his or her expiration date. But it looks like ABC’s Nashville is bucking that trend, and is kicking someone to the curb.
While Fox and NBC’s fall 2015-2016 schedules feature a lot of new programming, ABC’s schedule is fairly stable compared to last year. A few new programs are sprinkled in among old standards. Find out when your new shows will air next season on ABC.
In this day and age of television, character deaths are a strong form of currency. As such, we’ve put on our most morbid thinking caps and have come up with 10 characters who absolutely need to meet their makers in the very near future.
The First Lady has taken a love for TV a step further. In February, she took a cameo on Parks and Recreation. Then this week, ABC announced that Michelle Obama will be joining Nashville for a special episode later this season.
After a night of numerous series premieres on Tuesday, tonight's TV is going easy on us, at least when it comes to new shows debuting, with just one new comedy joining the line-up, along with a slew of returning shows, including ABC comedies The Middle and Modern Family. We also have the return of South Park, Revolution and Nashville!
Nashville has only run for one season on ABC, and already the show has stirred up plenty of buzz. The drama will be returning to ABC for a second season, but before that happens on October 10, we are giving away one DVD copy of Nashville: The Complete First Season in conjunction with ABC Studios,.
ABC fell a couple of weeks behind the other major networks in getting us the their Fall 2013 premiere schedule, but with months to go, that's kind of ok. All the same, it's exciting to get to see when the network's new and returning series will debut this fall. For ABC, that includes the highly anticipated Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and new 80s-set comedy The Goldbergs, which looks like it could be a winner.
First seasons can often be a little clunky for new shows as networks figure out which characters really gel within a series and what sort of plotlines work best. If a program can last past a first season on the network, things often start coming together a little more effectively. Hopefully, such will be the case for ABC’s Nashville, a program which is heading into its sophomore season this fall. On Monday, the show announced that three characters will be upped in Season 2 to series regular status.
Tonight, ABC will air the season finale of Nashville. The above clip from "I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive" suggests that Juliette is on the verge of a meltdown. Unless what we're seeing is the worst the fallout for the young artist in the wake of her mother's death. Something tells me that's not the case. The timing couldn't be less perfect for all of this to happen, what with the CMA awards set to take place.
After a strong start, ABC’s Nashville only did middlingly well in the ratings during its freshman season on the network, but it did get nominated for some awards, including Golden Globe, People’s Choice Awards, and Writers Guild of America nominations. The awards support likely led to Nashville’s Season 2 renewal, and if you haven’t caught the fun but soapy drama, you’ll be able to catch up on Season 1 when it hits DVD on September 17.
