A New "Friday Night Lights" Tonight
With "The Wire" off the air, "Battlestar Galactica" getting soapy in a not-good way and "Gilmore Girls" a mess, and "24" becoming a cartoon of itself, the best show on TV right now is "Friday Night Lights." You know I love it. You know you should be watching. (You can catch up via iTunes.) Variety wonders if "FNL" will be the most acclaimed show to be cancelled by NBC since the absurdly early pink slip for "Freaks & Geeks," one of the best shows of all time. Entertainment Weekly has a nice feature from about a week ago, too. You already know my fix: save the second season for next spring as football comes to an end, air all original episodes in a rown and put it on...this might get confusing, but bear with me...Friday nights.
