One of my absolute favorite shows on TV right now, Friday Night Lights, is finally returning for a third season. But the new episodes will only air on DirectTV this fall. In a deal with NBC, the cable carrier will exclusively air the show’s new episodes, which will later air on NBC in the spring. The show, while critically-acclaimed, has struggled in the ratings. And that’s a shame because it really is one of the most well-written, superbly acted dramas on television. Seriously guys, if you’re not watching this show, you need to be. It’s like this generation’s My So-Called Life. For real. Watch full episodes online here.
So, I guess I’ll have to wait until the spring to see my beloved show. I’m sure it will be worth the wait though.
