Report: NBC boss doesn't like FNL's chances

Though critically acclaimed and a winner of multiple awards, the football-themed drama Friday Night Lights has had trouble finding its footing since it debuted in 2006. After posting disappointing numbers in its first season, NBC made a bold decision to renew the show for a second season, seemingly with the support of many of the network's higher-ups, who happen to be big fans of the show.

However, it doesn't look like that will be the case for a third season. In a brief chat with Radar Online, NBC Entertainment cochairman Ben Silverman gave a grim forecast for the Peabody Award-winning show.

"I love it, you love it," Silverman told Radar. "Unfortunately, no one watches it. That's the thing with shows. People have to watch them. We're NBC, we have a reputation to uphold. And, man, with this writers' strike...well, we'll see what we can ...

In the small town of Dillon, Texas, football is everything. The team to beat is the Panthers, who are coached by newbie Eric Taylor. Coming back after winning the State Championship, the Panthers will need all the help they can get once the next football season arrives, amidst all the personal dramas and injuries. This series is based on the book and movie Friday Night Lights. Season two of Friday Night Lights was cut from twenty two to just fifteen completed episodes because of the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike. In order to save the show and produce a new season, DirecTV stepped up and will air new episodes of season three on DirecTV's "The 101" during the fall, and then they will premiere during the winter on NBC. Both seasons can be found on DVD, as well as repeats on Bravo.
