'Friday Night Lights' ordered back on field
It’s a TOUCHDOWN for NBC’s “Friday Night Lights"! The Texas football drama — its about much more than football — has been renewed for a full second season. No word yet on what night NBC will air a show that has struggled in the ratings (against stiff-armed competition) but quickly became one of the season’s biggest critical darlings. Kudos go to NBC President of Entertainment Kevin Reilly, a big fan of the show, for showing patience and letting the fans spend a little more time with Coach Eric Taylor (Kyle Chandler) and the Dillon Panthers.
