Great news. The ABC Family channel has acquired the rights to all five seasons of the excellent NBC drama, "Friday Night Lights."
FNL premiered on NBC in 2006, but never grabbed a big audience. By the end of the second season, the only way NBC would give the show another shot was through a deal with DirecTV in which the satellite company would have first dibs on the episodes, and then NBC would run them later. That's how the third and fourth (current) seasons have aired, and that's how next season will work as well.
Next season, Season 5, will be the show's last. Season 5 will air on DirecTV in the fall of this year and on NBC in the spring of 2011.
The show will be a nice fit on ABC Family, which will begin showing Season 1 in September of this year. If you've never seen this show or if you just want to see it again, please circle September on your calendar. You won't regret it.
