6 Things We Want to See on Nashville's (Possible) Second Season

Nashville

ABC's Nashville was one of the most critically acclaimed new shows of the season, and yet its future remains on the bubble.

Did the initial glitz, glamour and Southern charm of Music City lose its appeal for some viewers? Was the back-and-forth bickering between country legend Rayna (Connie Britton) and young, hot starlet Juliette (Hayden Panettiere) tiresome? Are there just too many characters with competing story lines? And is there a need for all the shady politics?

Nashville's Jonathan Jackson: "I Don't Know if Avery's Going to Be Able to Redeem Himself"

Jonathan Jackson

Times are tough for Nashville's Avery Barkley (Jonathan Jackson). He's lost his girlfriend and his home, his former bandmates/buddies hate him, and his pursuit of a career in music is leaving him jaded. For a show about country music, Avery's spending a lot of time singing the blues.

"Avery's in a really interesting place right now," Jackson tells TVGuide.com. "His integrity is being compromised left and right, and there's just a lot of conflict going on. ... I feel for Avery, because I feel like he's trying to do the right thing, and at the same time there have been a lot of moments where he's incapable of doing that."

The Music of Nashville: An Essential Playlist

Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere

The official soundtrack for ABC's Nashville was released this week, and in case you haven't been keeping up with the series, we've put together a playlist to help you catch up before it returns in January.

"The music is as much a part of the narrative as the dialogue," according to creator Callie Khouri, whose husband, renowned producer T-Bone Burnett, is the series' musical director. (Check out ABC's accompanying On the Record web series for additional insights into the music from the actors and producers.)

And not to worry — though Nashville takes place in the titular country music capital of the world, its songs have mass appeal, even for... read more

Nashville: Good Guys vs. Bad Guys

Charles Esten

As two divas from different generations on ABC's Nashville, Connie Britton's Rayna Jaymes and Hayden Panettiere's Juliette Barnes steal the show's spotlight, both onstage and off. But as the series approaches the midseason mark, it's actually the men surrounding the two leading ladies whose story lines are keeping us tuned in every week. Will Rayna's husband win the race for mayor — and if so, at what cost? Will Juliette deflower her football player beau? Here, we break down the men of Nashville — including which ones have won us over, which ones we're keeping a wary eye on, and who we're still on the fence about.

Mariska Hargitay

Hitting the 300-episode benchmark is an impressive achievement for any series, but by the standards of the Law & Order franchise, SVU still has a ways to go before it approaches, let alone overtakes, the longevity of the still-missed mothership, which clocked more than 450 hours before NBC's abrupt pulling of the plug two years ago. read more

Daytime Emmy Scoop and Fearless Predictions

Anthony Geary

Apparently, we had nothing to worry about. There was a collective sigh of relief in the daytime TV community last month when it was announced that the 39th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards would air Saturday, June 23 on cable channel HLN (8/7c). Up until then, it was widely believed the awards — which no network wanted — would go untelevised or end up on the Internet. But Malachy Wienges, chairman of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, tells TV Guide Magazine that he "always had two backup plans in place — including one with Reelz — if the HLN [deal] didn't happen. We would never have let these awards leave television."
