Friday: ‘Friday Night Lights’

[IMG:L]Friday Night Lights — 9/8c on NBC

A highly intriguing, touchdown-scoring sophomore season comes to an end tonight.

In that sense, the second season pretty much picked up where the first left off.

It also held steady in the ratings department, however, and that is not a good thing.

Season one barely survived the cut from NBC due to low ratings, and despite boasting one of the most vocal and fervent bases of any TV series, Friday Night Lights will again be lucky to see another season.

In tonight’s season finale, Brian ‘Smash’ Wiliams (Gaius Charles) earns the potential opportunity of a lifetime, much to his surprise; Jason (Scott Porter) gets the biggest and best news since his accident; and Tim (Taylor Kitsch) continues his pursuit of the unavailable Lyla (Minka Kelly) by getting his own radio show.

Elsewhere, Coach Taylor (Kyle Chandler) becomes uncharacteristically jealous when Tami’s (Connie Britton) ex-boyfriend from way back in high school comes to Dillon longer than expected. In an interesting bit of casting, Tami’s ex-boyfriend is played by none other than Peter Berg, writer, executive producer and onetime director of Lights, as well as director of the 2004 movie version.
