  1. 20
    Even if you're a shameless lover of "Laguna Beach" and its spinoff, "The Hills," you should probably avoid this country-flavored iteration of the semi-scripted reality soap formula. It's pretty doggone dull.

    My name is Clint, and I'm a big stupid doofus from Texas starring in a new "docu-soap" called Nashville, where me and a bunch of other country singers try to become famous, like those girls did on "Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County."
  3. 20
    It all seems painfully staged and contrived.

    Almost every scene on Nashville feels ploddingly staged. Every conversation is alarmingly, and unconvincingly, topical; no scene is wasted.
  5. 20
    The show's dialogue feels scripted, its frequent hookups and breakups abrupt and phony, and its scenes from the music business out and out fraudulent.

    This show is slickly packaged and unchallengingly trite in its slavish reality-show construction.
  7. It takes a while to connect to these characters, and those who show up might not be willing to stick around until the melodrama kicks in.

    The show is as directionless as its stars.
  9. 30
    All the slick production values and some decent music in Nashville can't make up for these one-dimensional subjects, and their angst over their fledgling careers grows tiresome.
