Good news for "Friday Night Lights" fans: Ben Silverman says DirecTV wants to re-up for another season. He doesn't sound opposed. 2:35 PM yesterday from web

From Brian Stelter's Twitter

Hey Dude. I take what I get. DirectTv seemed to love it more than Silverman and co.
Fun Facts:

Peter Berg - Unoriginal with character names. Or is foreshadowing that Lyla Garrity is going to be a doctor.

DirecTV wants to have Peter Berg's babies, no---literally:

Like Friday Night Lights before it, DirecTV is bringing back Wonderland, another broadcast network series critically acclaimed but viewer challenged (and also executive produced by Peter Berg).

The satellite TV operator will show all eight episodes of Wonderland on its special channel, The 101 Network, and on DirecTV on Demand, beginning Jan. 14 at 10 p.m. Only two episodes ran on ABC in the spring of 2000 before the network pulled the plug. DirecTV says it will air in HD and without commercials.

The gritty series concerned the the doctors and patients at a fictional New York psychiatric hospital called Rivervue. The dark and violent series was reviled by many psychiatrists for showing an extreme example of mentally ill patients. (The first episode featured a madman who shot several people in Times Square and then tried to kill himself.)

Critics generally gave it high praise. The first episode attracted 13 million viewers, but a week later, the audience for Wonderland was only 7.5 million and ABC stopped airing it.

All the episodes will run Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET and begins following the Season Three finale of Friday Night Lights, the series that is uniquely "sharing" itself with NBC where it originally aired. Friday Night Lights makes its season debut on NBC two nights later, on Jan. 16.

Also, "Friday Night Lights" will do a live phone-in chat with the stars each week when it premieres on DirecTV in the fall. By the way, "FNL" will have 2 versions going for it next season. One will be ready for broadcast while the other will have a looser format -- perhaps running longer than an hour -- when it is on DirecTV.

Hell. Yes. x2

I need to look into getting DirectTV in Toronto. Don't tell me it's not possible because I will cry like a baby. Today is not the day to be telling me bad things.
