"Friday Night Lights" Renewed! Plus: More from NBC

"Friday Night Lights" Renewed! Plus: More from NBC

NBC won't make its official scheduling announcements till Monday, but there's lots of good news floating around for "Friday Night Lights" fans. This afternoon, reporters at both E! and TV Guide reported that the show has been renewed for a second season! E! reporter Kristin Veitch said the cast found out today that the show will be back. I've told you guys why I'm a little nervous about a second season for "FNL," but I admit I gasped and then did a little dance in my chair when I saw the news. (By the way, that notice about "Friday Night Lights" maybe returning this month is still online, though no announcement has been made.)

Meanwhile, there's some other news dribbling out about the network's schedule plans. Both Veitch and TV Guide's Michael Ausiello report that NBC is picking up "Chuck," a show from "The O.C." creator Josh Schwartz about an unlikely hero who gets spy secrets embedded in his brain, and "Journeyman," a time-travel drama. Ausiello also listed "The Bionic Woman" as a sure thing for fall, and Veitch said the plan to make "The Office" an hour long is looking pretty likely.

We'll hear the rest of the networks' plans next week. Until then, what do you make of the news?

WHOOHOOO!!!!! Go, PANTHERS!!!!! So excited!!! But, please, don't make "The Office" an hour long... I feel like that'll sacrifice quality.

If the Office is an hour long that means something has to go and it probably will be Scrubs which is very sad. I know ABC said they would pick up Scrubs if NBC dropped it but I have a feeling it wouldnt work out on ABC
