Check out our round-up report about the ABC freshman musical, will it be renewed, cancelled or is it still on the bubble?
Nashville premiered on ABC with great promise, it drew 9 million viewers and a 2.8 rating — gaining the mark as ABC’s best drama debut since OUAT. However, the following weeks for the musical soap did not live up to its initial ratings. Week two plunged down a -29% change and a 2.0 in the demo.
Nashville’s Wednesday 10pm berth is going against Chicago Fire and CSI on NBC and CBS respectively. Since CSI has been a veteran procedural on CBS, it is palpable that Nashville is having an arduous effort on pulling a bigger audience share. CSI ratings has been above average — its current run reached season highs during week 12, posting a 2.6 in the demo with a total of 11.46 million viewers.
So far, the ABC network hasn’t picked-up Nashville for a second season but we predict that its chances lies more on ‘likely to be renewed than cancelled’ by May 2013.
