Dateline gets three nights, bumps Friday Night Lights

friday night lightsEven though it totally slashed its staff, NBC is upping its order of Dateline to three nights per week. Most notably, it's going to air in the slot where Friday Night Lights currently sits on Tuesday nights. Now, FNL fans probably shouldn't worry! Even though its ratings haven't been outstanding, NBC did order a full season of the teen football drama and promises it is committed to the series. The network just hasn't announced where Friday Night Lights will land, but previous speculation puts it on Sunday nights.. Dateline will also air on Saturdays and Sundays, once the NFL season is over. The new schedule begins Dec. 26th.

According to the New York Times, NBC is planning to shuffle its schedule for the New Year. The network has said that it wants cheap shows (reality shows, news, and game shows) in its 8 pm time slots and dramas and comedies at later hours.

FNL should be going on break anyways and then will have been moved come January. They will just cancel Dateline after they find better shows. I think both FNL and Studio 60 will be dead come May.

I really hate it when a network continually shifts a program around. Before you know it, no one can find it, they give up, ratings drop, and then the network can't understand why. The end result: good shows get cancelled. I really hope FNL sticks around - I love it!
