Friday Night Lights Renewed For a Season

Just as I was losing faith in TV networks comes this great news today from NBC

 “We’re proud to reward an authentic, poignant series like ‘Friday Night Lights’ with a full-season order, demonstrating our confidence in it’s appeal and quality,” said Reilly. “Television critics and devoted fans have supported the show with well-deserved praise for the executive producers, writers and exceptionally talented cast.”

I couldn’t have said it better myself.  If there was a show that I was sure was going to be cancelled it was Friday Night Lights.  It isn’t a procedural like one of the 10,000 CBS shows.  It isn’t a high concept show like Heroes or Lost.  It isn’t a soapy show like Desperate Housewives.  It isn’t edgy like The Sopranos or The Shield.  It isn’t a cult favourite like Battlestar Galactica.  

Friday Night Lights is just great TV with a fantastic cast, interesting and multi-dimensional characters and stories that are full of humour and drama.  Most of all, it’s a show that leaves you at the end of every episode feeling not only entertained but exhilarated. 

Kudos to NBC for renewing Friday Night Lights for a full season and making a decision that most other networks wouldn’t have the patience or good taste to make.

    Please renew Friday Night Lights. It is the BEST TV show that I have seen in a long while. I am a high school teacher and find the story line realistic and very well acted.
