CMT Fall 2014 Schedule with Raising Hope; Nurse Jackie to End in 2015 After 7 Seasons

Raising Hope

It's time for the second of three networks that are airing Raising Hope this fall. First, we told you about FXX, now it's time for CMT. CMT will launch the sitcom with a marathon on Sunday, Sept. 21 from 2pm-10pm. Then beginning Monday, Sept. 22 it will air weekdays from 7-9pm in primetime following Reba from 5-7pm. The Dukes of Hazzard will lead-in on most days in the afternoons around 2 or 3pm. Raising Hope will be added from 4-5pm on weekdays beginning the following week on Sept. 29. Raising Hope will also air on weekends, but the times vary. It will usually pop-up on a weekend afternoon, so check your listings for times. The rest of the CMT schedule is filled with music, originals and movies. Cops Reloaded airs in late night, usually from 12-2am, followed by Fear Factor at 2am. One more network will add Raising Hope this fall and that is WGN America, so stay tuned for that fall schedule soon.

Nurse Jackie

After six award-winning and critically-acclaimed seasons, Nurse Jackie, the Showtime hit comedy starring the extraordinary Edie Falco, will begin production this week on its seventh and final season. The series, which premiered in 2009, instantly became one of the network's signature series, garnering multiple awards, including several Emmy(R) Awards, a Humanitas Prize, an AFI Award for "Outstanding Television Program" and several Prism Awards for its depiction of substance abuse. It has also placed its star Edie Falco in the rare position of being the only actress to ever win the lead acting Emmy Awards in both comedy and drama, and the most nominated television performer in Screen Actors Guild Awards history. As one of the highest-rated Showtime comedies, as well as the network's top female skewing comedy, Nurse Jackie averaged 3.4 million weekly viewers across platforms in its sixth season, once again outperforming its prior season. Nurse Jackie is a co-production between Showtime and Lionsgate.

Nurse Jackie also stars Merritt Wever in her Emmy-winning role, Paul Schulze, Dominic Fumusa, Anna Deavere Smith, Stephen Wallem, Betty Gilpin, Ruby Jerins, Mackenzie Aladjem and Peter Facinelli. Tony Shalhoub will guest star this season. Clyde Phillips serves as showrunner and executive producer. Tom Straw, Richie Jackson, Liz Flahive and Caryn Mandabach also executive produce.
