The End of the Road for "Friday Night Lights"

NBC's "Friday Night Lights" is a good show that no one is watching.

The TV series, based on the film of the same name, is about the lives of people in a small Texas town that live and breathe high school football. It got a boost in popularity when DIRECTV purchased the rights to air this newest season early, but now that its back on NBC, the ratings so far have been abysmal.

The show has returned for its third season to NBC after DIRECTV purchased the rights to air the season a few months early. Last Friday's episode earned a measly 1.4/4 rating/share, placing them fourth behind CBS's "Flashpoint," Fox's "Dont Forget the Lyrics" and ABC's "Supernanny." Last week's season premiere of the show got 4.6 million people to tune in. This last Friday it was 3.96 million.

If the numbers continue to drop like this, its safe to say that the show will be axed.

Stay tuned.

This is probably because anyone truley interested in this show already saw it in the fall on DirecTv. NBC continues its fine tradition of dumbfuckery.
