Friday Night Lights
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.
So many shows are in repeats (remember that digital conversion was set to be happening right about now) that I didn’t have much to scoop on. Let’s see what’s out there in the land of Primetime.
Grey’s Anatomy… McSteamy and McDreamy in a McScuffle? Apparently these two beat the hell outta one another. Is it over Little Grey? What’s up with Izzie and her clean bill of health? Well it’s not so clean after all. I mentioned a few weeks back that it looks like those interns messed up the blood sample and Izzie is indeed sick. Will the third time be a charm for Callie?
The cross-over event concludes tonight but that doesn’t mean there isn’t some separate Private Practice scoop. Sheldon and Violet lead a couples counseling group together. Looks like the therapists become the patients. Who’s the daddy? I’m not sure but Lord help me if it’s Sheldon. His character bores me to tears.
I’m a huge fan of BONES but I’m not so sure I’m ready for a Brennan – Booth hook-up. RUMOR has it the pair will hit the sheets before the season ends. First though, something’s up in the lab and the main characters are all suspects. READ MORE
Friday Night Lights' Aimee Teegarden (Julie Taylor) will appear on three epiodes of 90210. Look for Coach and Tami's daughter to appear in March.
And... this gives me the perfect excuse to remind you all that Friday Night Lights is on tonight on NBC.
Primetime Spoiler Round-Up!
I take requests and this past week we had a request for some Big Love SCOOP. Since it’s one of my faves, who am I to not oblige? So we’re kicking it off this week with everyone’s favorite Polygamists. There’s lots of trouble headed Nicki’s way this season as she gets in over her head. Roman goes on trial and will we be hearing more about Bill’s deceased sister Maggie? How did she really die? The fourth wife seems to be happening for the Hendrickson clan. Of course Ana brings some baggage in the form of an ex. Ben who wants to follow in dad’s footsteps and makes his first visit to Juniper Creek. Sarah has a secret and it MAY put her friendship with Heather to the test. Secrets, lies… all the good stuff that we’ve come to love about Big Love! Plus, Barb’s health and Bill faces a former foe. This looks to be another great season!
Thank you to all who tuned in to Friday Night Lights! They premiered to decent numbers (4.6 million) and if they hold those ratings we should get a fourth season. Stay tuned to NBC for the rest of season three. I promise you won’t be disappointed. READ MORE
I know I'm starting to sound like a broken record but I absolutely LOVE THIS SHOW! Friday Night Lights returns to NBC tonight! More after the jump! Thanks John! READ MORE
Primetime Spoiler Round-Up!
I’m kicking it off with a show I’m not really going to SCOOP on but instead beg you all to tune in! Friday Night Lights returns to NBC tomorrow night! I cannot say it enough, if you caught an episode here and there or are a faithful viewer like me, tune in as this season is the best yet.
BONES is returning a little later than originally planned. It MAY even return with two all new episodes on one night. The first of which has Bones and Booth going undercover at the circus. Sure to bring in the laughs with Dr. Sweets helping the duo dissect the circus world. Fake sex in a trailer and dead Siamese twins… oh how I love BONES!
Check out the latest gossip on Gossip Girl as a spin-off is in the works. In fact the “pilot” will be much like Private Practice’s was; happening within an episode of Gossip Girl in May. Lily and Rufus’ son is not dead and RUMOR has it we will meet the secret love child later on this season. Is a couple reuniting? RUMORS say a “core” couple will be finding their way back to one another but who could it be? Nate and Blair perhaps? READ MORE
