Now Watch "Tuesday Night Lights"
It's on tonight at 8 p.m. on NBC. I've just called for the head of "Studio 60." But "Tuesday Night Lights" is also hurting in the ratings and I don't want NBC to throw in the towel. If it can at least stabilize and not keep bleeding viewers the way "Studio 60" is doing, NBC will know that at least the people watching like what they see. Then maybe they'll hold it and relaunch the show in the spring. Then they can air "Friday Night Lights" on Friday and the people who would normally be watching high school football can sit at home and watch a TV show about it. This is family programming of the highest order: intelligent, adult, and reflective of the world most people live in. When was the last time you saw someone praying on TV who wasn't a polygamist or a serial killer or at least a hypocrite? Don't miss it.
