Friday Night Lights Headlines

A new member of our TheTwoCents team, Regina will be submitting a weekly update of the hottest Friday Night Lights tidbits!! Enjoy!

Our biggest news, of course, is that Friday Night Lights has just been renewed for a third season! I, for one, am highly relieved. This will save me a lot of time, what with not having to go camp out outside NBC's Burbank offices in protest and all. The show has a 13 episode order as of now, and NBC will begin airing it shortly after the Superbowl in 2009, in its same Friday night timeslot. The good news for those of us with Direct TV, however, is that the episodes will begin airing Wednesday, October 1 on Channel 101. That's right a full three months early. Anyone care to predict a rise in subscription rates? For the full details, check out NBC's press release on the subject.

In other news, our favorite Dillionites have been keeping themselves quite busy until the show resumes filming. (Rumored to be in late June.)
