"Friday Night Lights" will shine on after the critically acclaimed series ends its run on NBC Friday.
The New York Times reports that "Lights" will get a second life on ESPN Classic, which will air the five seasons in reruns.
There will be a season 1 marathon on Thursday and Friday, and then the show will be aired regularly on Thursday nights starting July 21.
I am so glad that SOMEONE has the good sense to grab this show up...one of THE BEST shows I have ever watched....seriously, when most of the options are IDIOTS and DRUNKS looking for their 15 minutes, this show is absolutely one of the best. SHAME on NBC for dropping it......guess they need the time slot for some more STUPID REALITY CRAPFEST.
How does a show that has always done poorly in the ratings get second and third chances. It's a terrible, racist program and the 21 responses in this page must be the actual 21 people who actually watch this crap throughout America.
Terrible?? Racist?? You watching the same show?? Very realistic show....
You must like to watch it. You took the time to read the article and to respond
Clear eyes, strong hearts, can't lose!
This show is great litteraly the only tv show i watch wish the tv companys knew how great this show can be would be awesome for a large texas tv station to takeover and keep it alive in texas
best show of its type ever on t.v.! wish that all shows were as well written, produced and acted! It really set the standard.
the show has been over for about 3 months now i watched it on directv nbc got to show it after the last 2 seasons have been on directv first and then on nbc.i liked the way it ended
This was an amazing show. Sad it ended. Great drama and about sports. They should make one with Coach Taylor as a college coach
I am from Texas, I love this show to pieces and Texas is not a joke, thank you very much.
YAY! One of my favorite shows ever! Wish it was staying on :(
Actually, the series ends this Friday
hate to see it end, love the show so much!!! my husband and i watch every week.... where is Coach Taylor going to go??
I have loved this show from the start. Its great family TV. Please don't take it off. We don't need anymore realaity tv
You're sure some great fan. The show's been cancelled for a year. This story is about the reruns.
Best show to be on television in recent years. How about they just keep the show running as opposed to selling the rights to every channel between 1-99. It is clear they have a fanbase....
These family shows are wonderful– Pease keep them up and Please find that Kyle Chandler another series, what a pleasant looking young man. Such a convincing actor, in any thing, he does.
I like watching them slap each others behinds
Great show! One of the few shows I don't like to miss.
Love this show and its accuracy; they're even talking about budget cuts and standardized tests.
Great show! Texas is all about football baby...
Of course, that's really part of the reason that Texas is such a joke.
The only ones who aren't laughing are other Texans.
Terrible program. Total waste of time. Almost as bad as Glee.
Don't let the lights go out!
I too love this show!
So glad to hear this!! ABC Family started re-running the 5 seasons, and then abrubtly stopped in season 2! Love this show and I'm terribly sad to see it go off the air!
