Entering Nashville series finale, how is the CMT show performing?

The Nashville series finale is airing on CMT on Thursday night; leading into that, is the show at a ratings peak?

We know that we are at a point in the show right now where the ratings don’t exactly matter. There is no real chance at a season 7 and the sixth season was designed to be the end of the road. Yet, we do remain curious in the performance of the show, just from the vantage point of seeing it try to end on a high note. The cast and crew deserve it after the incredible journey that they have been on, one that of course started over on ABC before eventually coming over to CMT for its final seasons.

We have had a look now at some of the latest numbers, and there is some good and bad news entering the last episode. When it comes to the 18-49 demographic, the series drew with its penultimate episode a 0.2 rating. That matches its best rating of not only this summer, but also the entire season as a whole. Meanwhile, in terms of total viewers the show drew just over 700,000 eyeballs watching live — that’s the best viewer count for the show in the past month.

By and large, we do think that Nashville is entering the series finale on the best possible note, at least when you look at the ratings for the past few weeks in perspective. We would like to see the show get closer to a million viewers for the finale, but that may be too high an expectation. Nonetheless, we do think that there are going to be some viewers watching live on CMT next week who typically choose to watch via their DVR instead.
