ABC Renews “Nashville,” Cancels “Malibu Country”
Reba McEntire fans might want to sit down.
It seems that ABC will not be renewing their favorite redhead's sitcom, Malibu Country. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series averaged 7 million viewers during its debut season.
Lovers of ABC's dramatic series Nashville can rejoice, however. The insider's look at the world of country music didn't exactly have the ratings the network had hoped for, but the potential revenue from CD sales, a possible tour and additional marketing opportunities helped secure the series' renewal. It is uncertain whether the show will stay in its current Wednesday-night time slot or be moved to another night.
ABC is set to reveal their full 2013–2014 schedule on May 14 during the annual upfronts presentations in New York City.
