Well I think this is pretty good. So the show can get its own special award, be critically acclaimed, sell singles, tours, and albums, yet it can't pull nice numbers. Just sayin'. 
For all you Nashville fans, this is a glimpse of hope, that CMT enjoys/endorses the show, and could be willing to pick up the show for future seasons. Just staying optimistic.
