NBC is doing something most networks gave up on a long time ago–investing in quality programming. Case in point, they’ve renewed critically-acclaimed (and certified AWESOME by me) Friday Night Lights for two more 13-episode seasons. The show will run through the 2010-2011 season and will continue its partnership with DirectTV, airing episodes on their network before premiering them on NBC.
While the show has struggled in the ratings, it’s received plenty of critical praise, in addition to Emmy and Peabody nominations. Seriously guys, if you are not watching this show, give it a shot. It’s one of the most well-written, superbly-acted shows on television. And, it’s not just about football. Watch, you won’t be disappointed!
