"Lights" gets a full season

We can't let Andy down as he's lounging around!

So here goes:

NBC seems to have ignored the ratings and is giving "Friday Night Lights" a full season of episodes. Sometimes it has landed down in 81st place but it's one of the season's best shows and NBC is going to give it some more time. The high-school-football drama is pulling an average of 6.1 million viewers and many of them have been with the show since the start. They're loyal to the back-up quarterback who's going to pull the Dillon, Texas, team into the win column.

Shows that don't receive a commitment for a full season get the death penalty.

Wow... I just don't get it. How can shows like Lights, Trees and Studio 60 get full rides after weeks of horrid ratings, yet shows like Smith and Kidnapped get yanked after 3 shows?

Is it because they're pet projects of the network execs and get overlooked for being horrid solely because of that, or what?

Tell ya what, even if I had any intention of watching those shows before... I don't now. I don't like, what in effect, is nepotism.

Friday Night Lights, despite it's mediocre ratings is well written, has great characters and I think will find a larger audience as people tire of some of the other shows.
