The FNL move is just a one-time thing.  S60 returns the week after with a two-part episode guest starring John Goodman.

I know they already confirmed that FNL will move to their spot Monday at 10pm starting next week. So unless they will try a different day/time and see what happens, its already gone.

The FNL move is just a one-time thing.  S60 returns the week after with a two-part episode guest starring John Goodman.

Yes, this was already covered.

looks like this is a one time thing... 60 gets a week off to get the far superior FNL a chance at a different timeslot...it's going to still show on Tuesday during it's regular slot.  The network probably just likes FNL more. Good for them.

They're not going to heed any advice though... they wouldn't make those kinds of changes that quickly to a formula they thinks makes the show... too bad.

Maybe they could kill off Harriet Hayes and make her a full-time cast member.  I would be up for that.

That would work better than everything on that USA Today list.

It's doing better than before... but still nothing to compete against other networks on Thursday night. Also it gets less ratings that Earl although they 'go together'.

It got better ratings thanks to all the people who downloaded and were able to catch up with iTunes downloads...

But the show is great... and if we consider that even Seinfeld had so-so ratings until the 4th season, I think this can also get better if it continues to be good.

Tonight's episode was the most abysmal yet... I can't even kind of watch this show in passing anymore.. Jesus Christ, I can't believe I even kind of liked this at first.

Everyone watch Friday Night Lights tomorrow.. THAT is the show to be watching.

Boy, have they dumbed down Peet's character. You now really have to wonder how is she the head of the network?

Best word I can think of characterizing last night's ep: vapid.

I guess my faith in Sorkin was misplaced. It started off well enough, and coupled with the experience of West Wing and Sports Night factored in, I thought that it'd find its place pretty quick. Last night offered the perfect setup for it to redeem itself - a wrap party - lots of character interaction, no "comedy" sketches. Well, it didn't work. I was, for the first time, very bored with the show.

I'm right there with RK, except add BSG to the best show you should be watching category.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free, silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands, with all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves, let me forget about today until tomorrow.

I'm sorry, RK. I tried, but I felt like I needed to take Dramamine before watching. Was the camera having a seizure? It was far too distracting to concentrate on the story.

I was flipping through and caught part of it last night. Mac's right. I only saw the supermarket scene where she was checking out with all the ribs but it's like they tied the camera to a gym rope and let it swing. Is it always like that or was Greengrass just directing that episode?
