Friday Night Lights Ratings Update

A quick note on Friday Night Lights ratings from TV Guide today ...

Q: How are Friday Night Lights' ratings on DirecTV? I'm concerned that if they aren't high enough, NBC won't air the show this winter as promised.

A: Fret not. First of all, I can't imagine NBC not airing Friday Night Lights at this point. They still have to figure out if this DirecTV experiment worked, and they can't do that without correlative network ratings. As for its DirecTV run, the season premiere ranked No. 7 "I Knew You When ..." in its timeslot among all basic cable channels, but an impressive second among women 18-to-49, which means… what, exactly? Not sure, but DirectTV tells us they are "very pleased" with those results.

Friday Night Lights Quotes

"When Jason Street went down the first game of the season, everybody wrote us off. Everybody. And yet here we are at the championship game. Forty thousand people out there have also written us off. But there are a few out there who still believe in you."

Eric Taylor

We will all at some time in our lives, fall. Life is so very fragile, we are all vulnerable, and we will all at some point in our lives, fall, we will all fall.
We must carry this in our hearts, that what we have is special, that it can be taken from us, and that when it is taken from us, we will be tested. We will be tested to our very souls. We will all be tested.
It is these times, it is this pain, that allows us to look inside ourselves.

Eric Taylor
