Friday Night Lights
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

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.
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
