The Hollywood Gossip TV Watch: Friday Night Lights, Pushing Daisies

by at . Comments

Hurry up and finish that last pitcher of cheap happy hour beer tonight. There's great TV to race home and watch.

First up, it's the second season premiere of Friday Night Lights on NBC at 9 p.m.

This drama, focused on the personal lives of students, coaches and parents associated with a high school football team in Texas, is funny, heart warming and as realistic as television gets.

It also stars a young actress named Minka Kelly. Just ask John Mayer how talented she is.

Later in the night, anyone who missed the best new show of the fall season has a chance to rectify this inexcusable mistake: ABC is re-airing the pilot of Pushing Daisies at 11 p.m. It's unlike anything else on TV, a colorful fairy tale that has romance for the ladies and mystery for the men.

Even train wrecks can't resist dramatic and offbeat hits like these. You can bet that Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil will be tuning in. So should you.
