ABC picks up 'Nashville' for full season
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- ABC announced Tuesday that it has picked up a full season of television newcomer "Nashville."

"Nashville," which airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m., is No. 1 in its time period among Adults 18-49. The show beats out CBS' veteran "C.S.I." and NBC's freshman "Chicago Fire." Overall for the season, "Nashville" ranks among the top 3 new TV series for adults 18-49.
"Nashville" joins previously announced full-season orders for the new comedy "The Neighbors" and returning drama series "Scandal."
Dee Johnson, R.J. Cutler, Callie Khouri and Steve Buchanan are executive producers of "Nashville."
