Friday Night Lights
Michael B. Jordan's career has come a long ways since his early acting gigs on HBO’s The Wire and ABC’s All My Children. He currently appears on NBC’s family drama Parenthood and is must see on the upcoming broadcast run of Friday Night Lights. During an interview with WTAM 1100 Cleveland, Jordan was asked how he felt about the All My Children cancellation rumors.
IHR: You got your start on (ABC soap) All My Children, and lately there's been talk that the show may be canceled. How do you feel about that?
Michael: It's dear to my heart because that's where I kind of got my chops from, so it's a little sad to see it go, but I'm all about evolution and change. There was an era for soap operas, and there was a time when soap operas were the thing to watch. But, seeing how reality TV is taking over that time slot, it's kind of like pushing them out like, 'Hey, old guys, it's over for you.' I'm sad, but at the same time I'm privileged to see a new era coming about. Still, if I was on a soap, I'd be pissed!
Friday Night Lights returns to NBC for its final broadcast season April 15.
As if my DC/PC cohort Regan Cellura didn't have enough reasons to drool over The Bachelor star-turned-daytime talk show host Dr. Travis Stork, now the hunky E.R. physician has admitted his favorite series is Regan's beloved Friday Night Lights.
"'Friday Night Lights' is my favorite show for the last few years. That's the show that I can't miss," says Dr. Stork. "I've never seen a show that was of higher quality that people didn't watch." READ MORE

The season finale of Friday Night Lights airs tonight on NBC at 9 p.m. Eastern/8 p.m. Central.
Good news for Dillion Panthers fans! Variety.com is reporting that the rumor that Regan posted is official, Friday Night Lights has been picked up for two more seasons, securing the show for 26 more episodes. Are you happy to have at least two more years with your favorite high school football team?
I know I am not the only DC'er in love with the critically acclaimed Friday Night Lights so I will spread the hopeful news that has me smiling from ear to ear: FNL may be getting a two season pick up! According to Michael Ausiello (EW.com), who has the exclusive news, it's looking good that FNL will get a fourth season as NBC and DirecTV try to work out a deal. Season three, airing now on NBC, had its first run on DirecTV.
Sources confirm to me exclusively that NBC is engaged in active talks with DirecTV to extend their unique shared-window experiment with Friday Night Lights. But there's a catch -- and it's a good one. According to an insider close to the negotiations, DTV and NBC might only seal the deal if they can get – holy Connie Britton Taylor! -- a two-season pickup.
