Two new seasons for Friday Night Lights?


Western Civilization is on the verge of acquiring a new two-year lease on life according to a report in Entertainment Weekly:

It’s not quite a touchdown yet, but at least they’re near the end zone.

Sources confirm to me exclusively that NBC is engaged in active talks with DirecTV to extend their unique shared-window experiment with Friday Night Lights. But there’s a catch — and it’s a good one. According to an insider close to the negotiations, DTV and NBC might only seal the deal if they can get – holy Connie Britton Taylor! — a two-season pickup.

Though a spokesperson for NBC Universal declined to comment, a Peacock insider acknowledges that the studio is “actively looking at ways to keep FNL going.” Another NBC source adds, “We’re very optimistic a deal will be worked out.”

You can watch the show tomorrow night at 9 p. m. and follow some high-quality conversation about the show at Slate’s TV Club.

Wow, that is great news!

Friday Night Lights is just the kind of gritty, and REAL, show that may just reflect the times we're in...

[Now, if only we can resurrect the Book of Daniel - which spawned this Episcopal Cafe!]

...ok, back to the hoops,
