Well… Connie Britton was on Watch What Happens Live this week and here’s what she said when it came up: "You know, there's been a lot of talk about a lot of things. Full Story
Do you remember that episode? If you don’t remember that episode, that’s your weekend homework. Because you obviously haven’t memorised Friday Night Lights. I sat on this for a couple of days because, well, at first I felt maybe bad since he’s not a famewhore or anything but, you know, since his wedding photographer posted these online, why not? And besides, a wedding is the perfect way to start your summer weekend. Full Story
The Critics’ Choice TV Awards happened last night. I had no idea those even existed. Here’s what made sense:
Game Of Thrones and Breaking Bad tied for Best Drama. Bryan Cranston won for Best Actor in a Drama Series. Best Movie or Miniseries went to Behind The Candelabra and Michael Douglas was named Best Actor for it.
What didn’t make sense: The Big Bang Theory.
I don’t get it.
Just like Emmy voters don’t get Game Of Thrones.
Will this match the Emmys? Behind The Candelabra for sure. Game Of Thrones? Emmy voters prefer their English accents with tea. Sh-tty Downton Abbey has a better chance, I think. They’re all campaigning hard now in advance of the nominations which will be announced on July 18. Read Full Intro

Come on. Are you crying a little? If Texas is forever and Dillon was your jam for 5 seasons, this picture will make you cry. Street got married. And look who was at his wedding: Hi Smash! And those Riggins brothers. It’s too bad Herc wasn’t there. If Herc was there, I’d be useless for the rest of the week, because I’d start again at Episode 1 and not come out from my FNL cave until the series finale. Full Story
I’ve been watching CNN for the past 24 hours, which I never, ever do, but the storm coverage is dramatic and of course, there was the Ali Velshi factor. The surprising part to me was the political ad that kept running – every single commercial break. I forget that it’s standard issue in the U. Full Story
Leonardo DiCaprio continued to shoot The Wolf Of Wall Street yesterday in New York, this time on a yacht holding lobster claws surrounded by bikini girls and exchanging words with Kyle Chandler. Judging by Coach Taylor’s working class suit, I’m guessing he’s a cop, the adversary to Leo’s excessive 80s trader-pimp. Full Story

I watched Moneyball on the weekend. I mean, it was fine. It was good. Brad Pitt is good. He’s just doing a Coach Taylor impression, though. I don’t want to say a Kyle Chandler impression, because I know Chandler can be other people than just Coach. But of course that’s been the role he inhabited for us for so long, so completely.

It has come to our attention that Friday Night Lights has been nominated for a DGA award! As usual, cheers and delight. And before I go any further, you really have to look at the company in which the show is nominated. Homeland, Breaking Bad, The Killing, Game of Thrones. Full Story

I considered calling it “Best & Worst” but I’m not sure “worst” is the right word. And besides, to see Connie Britton’s face when Kyle Chandler forgot to thank you - it was the kind of eyeroll reserved for a family member, the kind of eyeroll Tami Taylor gave Eric. A lot. Like, OF COURSE he’d forget me. Full Story
First it was Jason Katims for Writing... which... It’s about F-CKING TIME!!!! What? You don’t understand? Because you don’t watch??? Well... I don’t know what else I can say. It’s been declared one of the best shows, if not THE best show, of ALL TIME. And Eric and Tami Taylor the most real marriage on television, like, EVER. Full Story
That’s how Tami Taylor would say it, right? If you don’t love Friday Night Lights, don’t bother reading this article, UNLESS of course you want to meet the most authentic marriage in the history of television which, I know, sounds like an oxymoron but this is what they were able to achieve on FNL.
