NBC’s Friday Night Lights is in an episode surplus, which is could actually boost the show. Most scripted shows only have one or two more episodes to air, but Friday Night Lights is so ahead of their homework, that they may have 6 episodes to air after the Holidays. So, they’re banking on the WGA strike and hoping it will boost their ratings.
They may be ahead of the game with episodes, but but they’re still not sure if they’re going to be renewed for another season. I like the show, but never have time to watch it, and now that there is less football involved, and not other new scripted shows, I’m in. I did an interview with Kevin Rankin, Herc, the quadrepalegic guy on the show a few weeks back, that I’ll release soon. Guess what? He’s also Nathan, the gadget man in Bionic Woman…and he’s not handicap. Although he’s fooled people a few times when they see him walking around with no wheelchair.
