Friday Night Lights Finally Gets Some Love Regan Cellura December 9, 2008 4 Comments It's about damn time! Friday Night Lights is one of the best shows on primetime TV, yet it has never received the recognition it deserves. That all changes with the Writer's Guild Awards Nominations, as my beloved FNL is nominated for Dramatic Series. Friday Night Lights returns for a third season on NBC in 2009 after it's run on DirecTV wraps up. Translation: You have plenty of time to watch Seasons One and Two on DVD before the Season Three premiere. Add it to your Christmas list. So many think it's just some football show and I assure you, it's so much more than that. Not to mention the incredible acting by the entire cast and amazing storytelling. Lost, Dexter, Mad Men and The Wire were also nominatedin the Dramatic Series category. FOX's Fringe picked up nods for New Series and Long Form for the pilot episode. FNL returns to NBC on Friday, January 16, 2009 at 9 p.m.
