    Nashville makes me hungry. It’s the strangest thing.

  • touch is dead

    just like last season’s NBC music drama smash

  • senor chang

    in only 3 days? pretty huge rise.

  • Goergie

    Nashville is not anything like Smash or Glee. It is also going to probably end up being a show too becuase the writers are more focused on creating a good drama then choreographing dance numbers and picking out songs to force the plot to form around. Glee and Smash both suffered from emphasizing dancing and music over the plot. The plot is going to be what drives Nashville and the music created for the show.

  • Goergie

    *being a better show too…

  • Sid

    Those are pretty good increases. Hopefully the show remains stable this Wednesday.

  • MoHasanie

    Yeah, its a good show. Any show is better than the awful Glee!

  • MoHasanie

    Nice gains. Hopefully more people watch.

  • Jared

    ABC has another hit with Nashville. Those are pretty big gains.

  • Fred

    At 10:00PM a 3.9 is impressive.

  • Samunto

    I watched the episode and maybe it’s that i can’t stand listening to so much country music but this drama just didn’t do it for me. I got through the pilot but that was enough for me.

  • Matt

    that is giant for only three days. I think it will deliver at least 12 million by the +7 day numbers and around a 4.2

  • Karen

    Love this show! I really hope it lasts!

    this show is awesome ! i’ve always loved connie britton. she is a joy to watch. hayden is incredible playing her character. the music choices are amazing. the mere fact that these actors are doing their own singing,leaves me speechless. nothing is done half-ass,its all genuine and real nashville ! i haven’t looked foward to a new show for years and was so afraid i’d be disappointed after all the hype. just the opposite,this could be my most favorite show in my entire 53 years ! whether america takes to it or not,congratulations to everyone involved from the creators all the way down. the writing,the cast,the directing,producing,choice of songs and performance of songs,acting,just everything,there is no weak spots in this show!
