Friday Night Lights is BACK!!! in 2009...

OMG FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS IS BACK!!!!

NBC announced their new schedule starting Fall 2008 and while FNL is not back then, it will return in the "Winter" season (and so far only 13 episodes have been ordered).

Not the best situation but still, at least it will come back (if at least to resolve the storylines that were left hanging).

I'm SOOOOO FRICKEN EXCITED!!!

See Televisionary for more details about NBC's full schedule including a The Office spinoff.

The full schedule is after the jump and I'll return in new posts with commentary when I have time to digest it all. Though my gut reaction to a quick glance is that there actually isn't that much that excites me so far on NBC's schedule other than Friday Night Lights' return in February 2009 (it will premiere on DirecTV in October 2008 but I have no idea what that is), Chuck and the Thursday comedy line up. Plus Lipstick Jungle returns, with lets hope more of Robert Buckley (the main reason to keep watching (the last time I tried linking this it didn't really work but here it is again, may NSFW, but then again, they did air it on NBC)). 

And something of note, The Listener actually made it to the schedule (albeit summer 2009). It's the CTV produced Canadian show that got picked up earlier this year... but more on that later.

WWK says that the deal with DirecTV means that FNL will play in the fall on DirecTV and the spring on NBC. Guess who's got DirecTV?? MEEEEEEE!

Vance said...

ACK!!! I'm so JEALOUS!!! Hmm... maybe I can fly to Dallas every week... hehe...

Linz McC said...

Yes that sounds convenient! Perhaps you could change your flying schedule to work it out. Can you even get Directv in Canada?

theTVaddict said...

Sadly, Canadians can't get DirecTV, let's move the US.. who's with me?!? :)

Vance said...

Dan, let's take the next flight out to Dallas starting in Oct.

I still dont know what DirecTV is actually though. Cable channel? Cable system? Tivo kinda thing?

Linz McC said...

It is satallite tv, instead of cable. I have an extra bedroom and a blow up bed :)

Linz McC said...

I'm going to write you detailed spoilers every week! No, I am kidding. Watch my area DirecTV will not show it. Remember they decided to show a show about trains instead of Company? Devastating.

Vance said...

hmm... maybe you COULD write detailed spoilers for me everyweek for the blog! anyways, I will FIND a way to (ahem) watch them when they get aired in their first runs...
