    I’m sorry to hear that Nashville is still struggling. It’s one of my favorite shows this year, and I watch it every week. It’s even set to auto-record on my DISH Hopper along with the other big four prime time network shows using Primetime Anytime, so I never have to worry about missing an episode even if I forget to set a timer. I know a few friends I work with at DISH enjoy it as well, but have a hard time watching it on Wednesday nights. I wish ABC would change its time slot so it would be able to get better ratings.
