FOX takes NASHVILLE off schedule


First show to fall victim of the Fall 2007 Season: NASHVILLE.

FOX has yanked its freshman series Nashville just two weeks into its run. FOX noted that the series hasn’t been canceled and will “be rescheduled at a later date.”

Still, I can’t help but feeling like our DEATH WATCH prediction was right for at least one show so far. For now we’re going to stop Nashville‘s Death Watch clock and will reactivate it once the show is put back on schedule (which I personally doubt.)

Nashville was on the air for 10 days, 20 hours, 12 minutes, 50 seconds before it was yanked from the schedule.

More information:

The news, confirmed via scheduling updates from the network this afternoon, was expected following its paltry 0.9 adults 18-49 rating this past Friday.

Repeats of fellow newcomer “K-Ville” will now fill the Friday, 9pm hour for the next two weeks – “Pilot” on September 28 and “Cobb’s Web” on October 5 – with the network’s MLB coverage as previously announced on October 12 and the two-hour launch of “The Next Great American Band” on October 19.
