‘Nashville’ Gets Full Season

Good news, y’all. ABC’s musical soap opera Nashville got a full-season pickup Monday. The country-music drama, about a rising diva played by Hayden Panettiere who is at odds with a veteran crooner played by Connie Britton, earned love letters from critics when it premiered in September, but ratings have been less than stellar. The pickup is for nine more episodes. Also receiving orders for three additional scripts (but not a full season—yet) are ABC’s Friday-night sitcoms Malibu Country, starring Reba McEntire, and Last Man Standing, starring Tim Allen.
