When your daughter's dating a recovering alcoholic, as Haddie is on 'Parenthood' (Tue., 10PM ET on NBC), you might fear that he'd be a bad influence on her. Sure, he's in recovery, but that's no guarantee he won't relapse, or that some elements from that darker side of his life won't impact her.

And while Haddie's been rebelling a lot more of late, she's still supposed to be the good girl who makes good decision. Luckily, Alex (Michael B. Jordan) seems like a solid guy who really cares about her. More importantly, he's taking his sobriety very seriously.

Unfortunately, that makes it even harder when he's dating a high school senior who wants to go out partying where there's a lot of drinking ... and maybe do some drinking herself.

Entering into its fourth season (and second since the NBC/DirecTV deal), Friday Night Lights is a show in transition on numerous levels. The high school football drama returns tonight to DirecTV's 101 Network at 9 p.m. ET (NBC won't air this season until next summer) and for fans of the show, it's an episode they've long been waiting for.
