nbc has the brain of a peacock, and soon will be losing even that; network tv, the american wasteland


Iam so upset that nbc cancelled, Fridy Night Lights


What was the name of the song and who is the artist of the last song played on the final episode of Friday Night Lights?


The final episode of Friday Night Lights played a song at the end does anyone know the name of it and who sung it?
thanks for the help


I am going to miss this show. It was definitely quality tv.


I can't believe they have cancelled this show as well. It truly is one of theee most amazing shows.. the acting is brilliant, they make all the storylines come to life. I'm pretty depressed its going to be all over soon!


I can't believe NBC is crazy enough to let one of the very few good shows they have on the air go. This is in fact the Best show they have. I also can't believe Direct TV is not going to keep it on the air.


but it just hired with the final season, there are only 2 / 3 episodes at the end...


I'm gonna miss this show so much. It's just on of the best tv show ever.
