The CMT debut of Nashville now has an official premiere date. Contrary to headlines about the former ABC drama returning in December (what network debuts anything in December?), it turns out the basic cable network is rolling out the show's fifth season on Jan. 5.
In the meantime, we're hearing Rayna Jaymes is likely to take her final curtain call in season 5. Star Connie Britton has only signed on for about 10 episodes of the new season. One source close to the show insists, however, that they still remain hopeful they'll get her on board for more and that the deal is not yet final. We're hearing costar Hayden Panettiere is fully on board.

The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story taught a whole new generation about what Faye Resnick revealed to the world in her infamous tell-all Nicole Brown Simpson: The Private Diary of a Life Interrupted – the so-called "Brentwood Hello."
On the miniseries, Connie Britton stole a scene playing Resnick (now a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills guest-star) explaining her friend Brown Simpson's allegedly naughty habit to her book publishers.
James Corden explained a censored version of the sex act Thursday night on The Late Late Show after guest Mark Cuban admitted he'd never heard the term.
