I Warned You I'd Be Spammy

I know I quote Media Week a lot, but I like that they provide facts and not rumor or opinion presented to be fact (which is why I won't link Ausiello's report that Bionic Woman has unofficially been cancelled). Here is some interesting news about Friday Night Lights:

No, the renewal for 2008-09 is not official yet. But executives at NBC Universal are reported to be in search of multiple broadcast platforms for the critically acclaimed drama. The network has had conversations, to-date, with the CW, Comcast Entertainment Networks, DirecTV and TNT about sharing a window.

Personally, I'm hoping for a deal with TNT because they know drama ;) and their original series do well in the ratings.

Also, The Sarah Conner Chronicles is 29th in the rating?!?! And 15th in the golden 18-49 year old category?! So what's holding up FOX with a renewal? I know it's a pricey show to produce, but AI and House need some help sustaining the network.
Ok, but Ausiello just said that Taylor Kitsch (Riggins) was just "given permission" to take a lead role in the upcoming movie, Wolverine, which doesn't bode well for FNL's future. :(
Eh. Riggins breaks a leg in the big game and misses a few eps while he recovers. The assumption is that Jason was in so little of the back half of the season because he was off shooting a film. Speed Racer maybe?
