Fox's 'Nashville' May be Second Fall Casualty

by Paul William Tenny

Fox's new reality show (they call it an unscripted drama for some unfathomable reason) tanked so hard Friday night that Fox came in very last place overall, even being beaten by the UPN/The WB netlet combo The CW. Given the short fuse that Fox executives continue to exhibit (Anchorwoman was canceled after just a single episode had aired) it isn't likely that Nashville will last much longer.

It may not even make it long enough to see premier week. Frankly, though I sympathize with the people working on that show, failures like these first two reality shows are precisely what Fox deserves after dumping two fantastic (and real) dramas from Tim Minear (Firefly, Drive.) When retarded actions result in pain, perhaps they'll learn something from this.
