New York isn't far enough for Maddie! Any flights to Siberia available?

Wonder if Lionsgate can extort $10M a year from the state to produce a ratings dog on a subscription-based streaming service as opposed to a national over-the-air syndicate like ABC (who won't touch it now because it demonstrably is inadequate in delivering an audience to its advertisers).

I'd love to see Netflix pick up where the show left off.

Re: “ABC's Nashville Reportedly Canceled After Four Seasons; Real Nashville Mayor 'Incredibly Disappointed'

I liked it at the beginning because it showed everyone about the music industry. I was interested in how things got done. I liked how it taught me something.

Sometimes, how relationships are created purely for expansion of the "brand".

How talented people can't get ahead, and how it feels to be a performer, how mediocre talent can get ahead if they fit the mold expected of them.

I loved the characters, with a couple of exceptions.

Juliette- could steal a scene---The Best. I don't think I ever cried watching a TV show---she made me bawl.
Rayna always showed me how to be kind and remain calm when the worst swirled around her(however; that did change).
First season, Avery- such a jerk, but then written to be oh so sympathetic the next.
Scarlett, a piece of faded Halloween crepe paper stuck in a tree,flailing in the wind in February, just starting to poke her turtle head out of that Bazooka Joe turtleneck. She'd be Kicking asses soon, and I could barely wait.
I will miss the recaps A GREAT DEAL!!! Recap EMPIRE...I am begging you.
There are some great metaphors in those characters too.

Re: “ABC's Nashville Reportedly Canceled After Four Seasons; Real Nashville Mayor 'Incredibly Disappointed'

I see that Doyle has already defended our (CORRECT) spelling of the word "canceled." We use that word a lot around here, Christy. We know how to spell it. (Yes, the Nashville International Airport misspells it on its flight-update board when flights are canceled.)

Now, if you're Canadian, British or Australian, then I understand your qualm. Those folks go with "cancelled."

Anyway. Back to your regularly scheduled comments section.

Well damn it. I just found you! AND NOW IT ENDS!???? GRRRR!
Please recap "Empire" I have no doubt you would do it a better justice.

Re: “Nashville Recap: 'After You've Gone'

Can you keep doing the recaps even after the show ends? I am pretty sure you could come up with much better story lines. Thanks for the many, many laughs- I have continued to read these long past the time when I stopped watching the show itself.

ABC ---- YOU SUCK!! Every time a good show is created, you run it for a few seasons and cancel it. Who makes these decisions? Apparently you don't give a crap about what the viewing audience thinks. I Agree with the person who said "I'll find new shows on OTHER networks!" ABC, I'm done with you!!

Re: “ABC's Nashville Reportedly Canceled After Four Seasons; Real Nashville Mayor 'Incredibly Disappointed'

ABC STINKS! Nashville is my favorite show. It is a great show that I look forward to every week and I'm not even a country music person! The amount of talent from this show is amazing! I will be tuning into other networks instead of ABC from now on. They are putting on crap and taking away all the good stuff!

Why did they take Michael Strahand off Live? He and Kelly always made me smile in the AM. And how they told Kelly was just rude! They even won an Emmy but that doesn't matter to ABC.

I Hope ABC goes away with all their horrible decisions. It's the people who watch these shows that keep ABC alive. Count me out from now on! I'll find new shows on other networks!

Boo to ABC

Re: “ABC's Nashville Reportedly Canceled After Four Seasons; Real Nashville Mayor 'Incredibly Disappointed'

canceled vs cancelled:
http://grammarist.com/spelling/cancel/

have to admit, gonna miss this show. silly and soapy, it was never not fun to watch. me and the wife always had a standing Wed night couch date and we always knew we'd have fun. it has been good for the city, good for Grimey's, with a tangible impact. I talked to many tourists who decided to visit Nashville because of the show and they spent money! the show always supported local businesses and sourced materials locally, buying bulk LPs & CDs from us to dress sets and employing our friends. I really do hope there's some chance another network or Netflix will consider picking it up, at least to bring storylines to a satisfying conclusion. And I agree that the Scene needs to find something else for Ashley to wickedly satire. Her re-caps were the best.

Can Ashley just start recapping Metro Council meetings in the same spectacular, snarky way?

Re: “Nashville Recap: 'After You've Gone'

I really liked this show the first year, not so much the second. The third year was lots better, but this year has been a colossal nosedive. It couldn't get canceled fast enough as far as I was concerned. So today's news was a joy.

I feel sorry for the actress that does Scarlett, because I suspect that we will never hear from her again. I think she is going to have "Scarlett" hung around her neck like an albatross and will sadly be unfairly remembered as a one-note ("I'm miserable and confussed") actress.

I wish someone would cancel Began Marry, I mean Megan Barry. She is like a menopausal Johnny Cash. Has she ever worn anything that isn't black?

Re: “ABC's Nashville Reportedly Canceled After Four Seasons; Real Nashville Mayor 'Incredibly Disappointed'

It had laughable moments. It could be tacky. It was a soap opera. But dammit, it was our soap opera! There aren't too many other cities in America that have had television shows with their name as the title, after all. It was unique and it was fun, and a lot of local people, musicians especially, got good work out of it. It was fun while it lasted, and it will be missed.
