Friday Night Lights may move to Sundays

The Hollywood Reporter is claiming that NBC execs plan to move Friday Night Lights to Sunday nights once the NFL season is over. The move is a strategic one-- to keep FNL out of the line of fire of Fox's unstoppable American Idol, which begins airing on Tuesday nights in mid-January. Last week, NBC ordered up a full season of FNL, which gets an average of 6.7 million viewers each Tuesday night.

This schedule change is reportedly one of many, as the New York Times and The Hollywood Reporter now both say that NBC is planning a major schedule overhaul for January (NYT says the new schedule will be announced this week). Also slated to move is Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, which currently festers at 10 pm on Monday nights.

gah, too many acronyms in that post!

FNL is a nice piece of television, but I want to see more about the nice people struggling, namely the rookie-QB and the coach, rather than the jerks having a hard time not being famous enough.

That's a good idea. I hate the idea of it on Fridays, even even the name, because Fridays are the dead zone for TV mostly.
