When the Lights Go Out: Friday Night Lights Season Five Promo

Yes, it's Clear Eyes, Full Hearts time...

DirecTV has unveiled its first promo trailer for the fifth and final season of Friday Night Lights, which kicks off at the end of the month on the 101 Network (and will likely air next summer on NBC).

Set to The Black Keys' "When the Lights Go Out," the trailer is light on story but heavy on atmosphere as it depicts the cast of characters--including Kyle Chandler's Eric Taylor, Connie Britton's Tami, Jurnee Smollett's Jess Merriweather, Aimee Teegarden's Julie, Michael B. Jordan's Vince Howard, Madison Burge's Becky Sproles, and Matt Lauria's Luke Cafferty--getting dressed and assembling so that they can walk en masse to some kick-ass beats.

The full promo for Season Five of Friday Night Lights can be viewed below as well as the episode description for the season opener.



Episode 501 ("Expectations"): Coach Taylor tempers high expectations for East Dillon’s impending season as Tami becomes frustrated in her new job. Meanwhile, Vince and Luke work to recruit a new player for the Lions’ squad and Dillon bids farewell to two alumni as they prepare to leave for college.

The fifth and final season of Friday Night Lights premieres on October 27th at 9 pm ET/PT on DirecTV's The 101 Network.

Great promo but wish some of the old characters would be on it as well. Even though they are no longer on the show, I'm sure they'll come back in some capacity. I'm looking at you, Lyla! Speaking of... where's Tim?? Still doing time?

You know I love FNL, but that was not an FNL trailer. That was a trailer for some HBO show. Or maybe even a CW show. (Not that I don't mind the pretty. But I do miss Tim.)

Great show, hate to see it end. But having it first on Direct TV is crap. Dish is way better than Direct and UVerse is better than either one. It's still good to watch if it makes it to NBC during the summer when there's nothing new, but the plot lines trickle down and that hurts.

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

Me Want Food: Jenna Gets Famously Fat on "30 Rock"

I don't know about you, but I've already ordered my "Me Want Food" t-shirt from the NBC store. Last night's episode of 30 Rock ("Jack Gets in the Game") was, in my opinion, one of the strongest of the series and has officially pushed the zany comedy into the realm of Arrested Development : deftly plotted and intricately layered, with so many jokes piled atop of jokes that it requires several viewings in order to catch them all. While at its heart, 30 Rock is a workplace comedy, it's left that narrow pigeonhole behind to become a witty example of how intelligent and taut humor can work (and flourish) on television... and exist in harmony with hilarious throwaways like the Thriller -inspired Werewolf Bar Mitzvah music video that would have done the AD crew proud. I want Will Arnett to appear on this series whenever possible. His gay exec Devin is hilarious, manipulative, and has an inexplicable weakness for Kenneth the Page, but he claims to have

"Gilmore" Guy: Who is New Showrunner David Rosenthal?

A few days later and I am still processing the news that Gilmore Girls showrunner Amy Sherman-Palladino--and her exceptionally talented husband, writer and producer Daniel Palladino-- announced their departure from the whip-smart drama after six seasons. The news wouldn't be such a blow, save for the fact that Gilmore Girls is as much about Amy and Daniel as it is about Lorelai and Rory. In their capable hands, the show explored a supremely complicated family dynamic through the beautiful friendship of mother and daughter Lorelai and Rory... and did so with smart dialogue usually found in a Nick & Nora film rather than on television. Zany subplots abounded as did quirky, beloved supporting characters. And now, after six seasons (including this most recent--and very shaky--season where Amy and Daniel wrote less episodes than usual), Amy and Daniel are passing on the showrunning torch to... Dave Rosenthal?!? For those of you in the audience unfamiliar with David Rosenthal ,
