Friday Night Lights is Saved!!

Nikki Finke reports that FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS (the best show and soap on TV) is on the verge of being renewed for a 3rd season thanks to a deal with DirecTV that makes financial sense to NBC. "The answer," Finke reports, "came in a deal with DirecTV, now owned by John Malone's Liberty Media. Clearly Malone is looking to offer exclusive content to his satellite subscribers to distinguish DirecTV from its rivals on a content as well as price basis. "It's an innovative deal where NBC found a partner who will share costs and exhibition windows," an insider explained to me. So both NBC and DirecTV will be airing Friday Night Lights across multipurpose platforms."
