Looking Ahead: ''Friday Night Lights,'' NBC's Thursday Comedy Block

By RD Heldenfels Published: November 27, 2006

Tomorrow night's ''Friday Night Lights'' landed on my desk about a week ago. I didn't wait long to watch it. My only regret is that I'll have to wait for another new one. I sometimes wish there was no football in the show, since that may have created bad expectations in the audience -- about the subject matter, the maturity of the storytelling, the range of the characters and their lives. Even if you don't care about football, even if the Browns' state has driven you away from the game, watch the show. Still great stuff.

Over the holiday, caught the new episodes of ''The Office,'' ''Earl,'' ''Scrubs'' and ''30 Rock'' that NBC hopes to use for a comedy comeback on Thursday. Excellent ''Office,'' good ''Earl,'' better than usual ''30 Rock'' and a ''Scrubs'' that had me laughing pretty hard, especially when you consider that I'm not that big a fan of the show. It also had me putting ''Bye Bye Bye'' in the CD player. You'll see why.
