Friday Night Lights on NBC. A series that came out of nowhere in 2006 to wow critics and audiences alike. Audiences that actually tuned in, that is. While the show isn’t a huge ratings grabber, for those that have discovered it, it is one of the best.
The fact that the series has not been showered with Emmys is baffling. Just one Emmy award in 4 nominations over 2 seasons, despite honors and nominations from the Television Critics Association, Writers Guild, Directors Guild, American Film Institute, and the highly prestigious Peabody Award.
When so many people believe in the series from its fans to critics to DirecTV to NBC’s top execs, isn’t it time for television’s highest award giving body to believe as well?
