Nashville‘s Scarlett and Gunnar wanna duet all day long, but when Avery walks in on the pair in the clip below, their beautiful collaboration hits a flat note.

In this Wednesday’s episode (ABC, 10/9c) Jonathan Jackson’s Avery offers Gunnar (Sam Palladio) the opposite of southern hospitality as he shrugs off a compliment and then goes to sulk while Scarlett (Clare Bowen) looks uncomfortable. Check out the teaser clip here from TV Line!

Now, last week’s ratings for the highly touted new series took a dive, leaving many mainstream outlets including TV Guide and TV By The Numbers to speculate whether the rookie show will be on the bubble for cancellation or a renewal come May 2013!  If the ratings don’t pick up, it could spell trouble for Music City even sooner than that!

With television favorites such as Connie Britton, Hayden Panettiere, Eric Close, and General Hospital’s Jonathan Jackson, it would be shame if the show were to tank so soon!   You can check out an all-new episode tomorrow night at 10PMEST/PST on ABC.

So what do you think of Nashville thus far?  Are you interested to see what shakes in Jonathan Jackson’s storyline?  Let us know!

If the show does not get canceled. I hear the ratings are not all that great. I would be very surprised if it gets renewed for a second season.

I like Nashville but,I would like to see more of Jonathan because he is a great actor and his talent is not being used how it should be.

Jonathan Jackson is a talent actor, writer and musician. He can play any kind of character. As mentioned in previous interviews Avery is multifaceted, I can see a “creative struggle” coming and looking forward to where ever Jonathan/Avery gets into next. Good to see he is getting airtime.

I’m loving Nashville! The cast is fantastic and the character/story development so far has me practically counting the minutes until the next episode! The music has been icing on the cake! As for Jonathan Jackson, I became a fan of his a long time ago and I will always support whatever project he’s a part of. Based on interviews that he’s done I know that he’s really excited to be involved with Nashville and the opportunity it’s giving him to both act and sing (and play). I can’t wait to see what’s coming up for Avery Barkley!

The few scenes Jonathan have been in have NOT impressed me at all. He did better work on GH. So far, I’m not feeling the show. This week may be the deciding factor whether it comes off my DVR or not.

I am really enjoying the singing, the acting, and the addition of Jonathan Jackson on this show. Cannot wait for each new episode! Hope the show stays on network TV.

I absolutely love Jonathan Jackson. I have been a fan of his ever since Camp Nowhere. I love his Nashville character, Avery Barkley. He is super sexy and can really sing well. Jonathan has his own band, Enation. He is so talented and he is a wonderful actor who can take on any role. I am so excited to see him on primetime tv. Avery needs more scenes on Nashville!!!

The duet with Jonathan Jackson and Sam Palladio is the best I’ve heard so far. It is addicting to the point that I watch it over and over on my dvr and can’t get enough of it. I would like to see a video or cd that I could buy. Love it. Claudette

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Helena, Jennifer Smith & The Ice Princess: What Did You Think of Luke Spencer’s Memorial?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought the highly-anticipated story around the apparent death of Port Charles iconic, Luke Spencer (Tony Geary), although many fans, and even some of the cast of the show, are not sold that Luke is “dead” dead.

During the show, characters spoke of some of the history of Luke in Port Charles, most especially Luke’s sister, Bobbie played by Jackie Zeman.  Throughout the years, Zeman is at her best when she is given material through the writing of the show to connect to the history of Luke and Bobbie.  She did so when Bobbie was remembering how Luke came to Port Charles to help her break up Scotty and Laura, in a discussion with her daughter, Carly (Laura Wright).

As everyone is gathering at the Haunted Star to pay their respects to Luke, Curtis (Donnell Turner) arrives to support Laura (Genie Francis), Felicia (Kristina Wagner) and Anna (Finola Hughes) arrive together, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West), as well as Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez  also show up. It is through Nikolas’ conversation with Laura that we learn why Luke’s sons, Ethan and Lucky, can’t make the funeral and, of course, we know why Luke’s daughter Lulu can’t make it because she is in a coma!

Victor (Charles Shaughnessy) shows up and snipes at everyone and then leaves.  Tracy (Jane Elliot), who has arranged the memorial, is with an urn supposedly filled with Luke’s ashes and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) finds her on the deck of the Haunted Star and talks her into giving her planned eulogy.

Meanwhile, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finds his dad, Sonny (Maurice Benard) drinking at Charlie’s, and later Scott (Kin Shriner) and Robert (Tristan Rogers) stop in and heated words are exchanged between Sonny and Scott. Victor shows up and instead of Scott and Sonny pummeling each other, they get into a fight against Victor.

As Scott and Robert are about to be on their way to the Haunted Star, Scott stays behind because of his past with Luke.  Then, Sonny tried to patch things up with Carly before they head to the memorial.

Back on the yacht, Anna and Felicia find a note and a flash drive, after hearing a commotion on the yacht.  When the note says “play me”, none other than Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) addresses Luke’s friends and family from apparently the great beyond.  As Helena spews her venom against Luke, Laura has enough and pulls the plug on Helena’s video speech.  Tracy looks concerned, like she may want to hear whatever else Helena had to say.

Next, Tracy does her best in short order to eulogize Luke.  That is juxtaposed with Scott trashing Luke.  Later, by herself on the deck, Tracy spreads Luke’s ashes over the waters of Port Charles. Back on the pier, Scott relishes Luke being gone, and that he is still standing saying, “You lose you son of a bitch!” Just then Luke’s ashes blow in into his face.  When Bobbie arrives, and see Scott full of ashes, she asks what happened.  Scott says, “I caught the bouquet,” an obvious nod to the Luke and Laura wedding of the past, where Scott returned at their wedding and caught the wedding bouquet.

Back on the Haunted Star, Tracy then has a gift in hand for Laura, but she tells Tracy if that’s the Ice Princess she does not want anything to do with it, and tells Tracy to keep it.  Spencer sees this go down and his interest on the diamond is instantly piqued.

Back at Charlie’s bar, Victor has an ominous toast to Luke saying, “The good people of your fair city are in for a big surprise!”

At the Haunted Star, dressed in black with black veil, Jennifer Smith reveals herself to a shocked Laura.

So, what did you think of Luke’s memorial episode? Favorite parts of it? Least favorite? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, check out Helena’s videotaped speech and Tracy’s eulogy to Luke below.

Genie added: “I feel like they’re setting the stage, really, for a wonderful comeback and I’m going to keep my fingers crossed for that.”

And Luke’s sister, Bobbie, played by Jackie Zeman, also weighed-in if Luke is really a-goner: “Sometimes you get these little red herrings so, as you know, George, you know, you never really know.”
