    My family was so disappointed to hear that Friday Night Lights was being cancelled. I was looking up to see when it was going to premiere only to find out it was not coming back. This was the best show on TV with real life stories that everyone could relate to. Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can't Lose is one of the best motivational lines ever. My son and me actually have the t-shirt. There is so much crap on TV and now we have nothing to look forward to. You should reconsider bringing back for the sixth season!

    My husband and I love Friday Nights Lights. I wish you would keep the show going. Its such a realistic and wonderful storyline. I wish there were more tv shows like this one instead of all the reality junk. Please reconsider and make a FNL season 6.

    Once again, NBC will take off another GREAT show and for what this time. To put on sometime stupid like they always do. Friday night lights has been one of the greatest shows that I have seen in a long time. NBC, this show is really a terrific show and you guys should bring it back. Every Friday I am waiting for Friday night lights to air and when it comes on, you guys never let me down till now with this saying it's the last and final season. You did it with, Seinfeld, Friends, Night Rider, and now this. NBC, bring back Friday Night Lights please

    So sad to see this show go my husband and I are huge fans. I wish T.V. would have more good shows like this instead of all the reality garbage that is now on. People now a days need to see something good and not people making fools of themselves all the time to get fame.

    This is a great show. Have enjoyed watching with my son as he goes through HS. Why does NBC feel we need so much reality TV?? Because the numbers show the general population wants junk TV. Come on people. Demand better by watching better. Turn off Trump and Biggest Loser. Take a look at PBS...great programming there. NOVA rocks!
