Big News From NBC

NBC released their entire 2008-2009 season about a month before the Upfronts (when Networks generally present their Fall Schedule).  Instead of waiting a month and only giving us the Fall schedule, they gave us well into the Summer of '09.

The big news of their presentation?

You guessed it (or maybe didn't, I can't really tell as I'm writing this far before any of you actually get to read it) it is the official return of last season's winner for Josh's Choice for Best New Show of the Season, FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS is back!  Although it won't be airing on NBC until next February, it will be airing on DirecTV starting in October.  I will therefore be going to the houses of friends or family with DirecTV starting in October to be watching my Dillon Panthers.  Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can't Lose.

The other big news is the announcement of a spin-off of The Office.  It will premiere after the Super Bowl.

That's all we know about it so far.  No word on other details as of yet.

It will either be awesome, or it will be the worst spinoff since Joey.

Speaking of NBC, tonight is the return of My Name Is Earl with an hour long episode guest starring Paris Hilton.  She has some work to do to live up to the guest spots of George Michael and Britney Spears in recent episodes on rival ABC.  This has been a rather weak season for the show that excelled in its first two seasons.  Hopefully the break due to the strike will have inspired this show back to its former heights.  (Having Earl out of jail certainly won't hurt.)

Until Next Time, look for my second LOST less post tomorrow where I might bring up some of the questions posted by Doc Jensen in his latest EW article.  Also, tomorrow is the return of the greatest show on television (possibly ever), Battlestar Galactica.
