Clear Eyes, Full Heart, CAN'T LOSE
I'm told that Jeff Zucker, Marc Graboff and Ben Silverman had been searching for a way to renew the critically acclaimed but low-rated Friday Night Lights for a 3rd season so that it would still make financial sense. The answer came in a deal with DirecTV, now owned by John Malone's Liberty Media.
Darn good news...while FNL stumbled out of the gates to start this season, it certainly found its footing late on. Not everyone watches the show, but almost everyone who does (like myself) loves it, because it's pretty honest (aside from the conceit that Dillon, TX has the best looking population on Earth), incredibly well acted and written and everything else you'd want in a TV show.
