Nashville is likely to be canceled. It has been low rated all season long, but the reaper’s kept it at a toss up while clearing through the early season hub bub.
The reaper was leaning towards moving his prediction for it to likely canceled eventually, but given two weeks of new series low ratings (0.9, 0.8) he figured now was as good a time as any.
Like Revenge last season, Nashville was carried into a fourth season by the guarantee of the #SyndicationGods, but it hasn’t got nearly the ratings to make it to a fifth.

The Reaper Index is the ratio of a scripted show’s new episode adults 18-49 ratings relative to the new episode ratings of the other scripted shows on its own network. It’s calculated by dividing a show’s new episode Live+Same Day adults 18-49 average rating by the Live+Same Day new episode average of all the new scripted show episodes on the show’s own network. The network’s average ratings in the calculation are not time weighted (ex. hour long shows are not weighted twice what 30 minute shows are).
(F) -Fridays: Shows airing on Fridays were renewed with significantly lower than average Indexes.
