It's about damn time! Friday Night Lights is one of the best shows on primetime TV, yet it has never received the recognition it deserves. That all changes with the Writer's Guild Awards Nominations, as my beloved FNL is nominated for Dramatic Series.
Friday Night Lights returns for a third season on NBC in 2009 after it's run on DirecTV wraps up. Translation: You have plenty of time to watch Seasons One and Two on DVD before the Season Three premiere. Add it to your Christmas list. So many think it's just some football show and I assure you, it's so much more than that. Not to mention the incredible acting by the entire cast and amazing storytelling.
Lost, Dexter, Mad Men and The Wire were also nominatedin the Dramatic Series category. FOX's Fringe picked up nods for New Series and Long Form for the pilot episode.
FNL returns to NBC on Friday, January 16, 2009 at 9 p.m.

Grayson McCouch's return to As The World Turns as Dusty Donovan is shaking up Oakdale as Emily (Kelley Menighan Hensley), Lily (Noelle Beck) and Alison (Marnie Schulenburg) fall over themselves to jump his bones. However, it wasn't any of these three characters that set fans on fire a few years back when paired with Dusty. It was Peyton List's Lucy Montgomery.
List, who left ATWT in 2005 to seek stardom in primetime, has yet to land a"breakout" role that would rocket her onto the covers of celebrity magazines and splash her name all over the evening entertainment news shows, but unlike many daytime starlets who seek fame and fortune in Hollywood and fail, Peyton has been one busy girl.
In the three short years since since leaving Oakdale, Peyton has appeared on Smallville, Without a Trace, CSI: New York, One Tree Hill, Windfall, Day Break, Big Shots and Moonlight. This fall she's appeared in at least four episodes of AMC's Emmy winning Mad Men.
List's success doesn't bode well for "Lusty" fans, who would like nothing more than to have her return as Lucy to heat up TV screens with Dusty. Check out pictures of Peyton List on Mad Men after the jump. READ MORE
