Friday Night Lights returns to NBC tonight for Season 4. It's already aired on DirecTV and I've seen it. Obviously, you guys know I think it's a top-notch show, but here's what others have to say. Entertainment Weekly gives the series an A. The New York Daily News gives the season four stars. Respected TV critic Alan Sepinwall says, "Fans without DirecTV have to wait longer for each season, but having seen all 13 episodes already, I can assure you that the wait will be worth it." The Philadelphia Daily News says, "When I reviewed the DirecTV season premiere back in October, I'd seen one, maybe two, episodes of the new season. (Season 5, scheduled to be the show's last, reportedly begins filming this summer.) Now that I've seen all 13 (several more than once), I can at least tell those who didn't get to see it in its first run that this new-to-you season of Friday Night Lights is more than worth the wait."

What more can I do to get you to watch the show? How about a Q&A with Connie Britton and Kyle Chandler (Tami and Eric Taylor) and some Minka Kelly pictures.

One More FNL Note...
In honor of the show's return, is looking at the best sports-themed shows of all-time.
Bruce Drennan Is My New Favorite Person Ever
Bruce Drennan hosts a weekday talk show on Cleveland's Sports Time Ohio called "All Bets Are Off with Bruce Drennan." After the team's 5-4 loss to Toronto Wednesday, he put on one of the greatest performances you'll ever see.
Sports And Towels
Iron Sheik, Bob Backlund :: YouTube
The Danny Ainge towel incident from earlier this week continues to provide great material. The latest example is this piece from on the top nine towel uses in sports history.
Ferrell Follies
Will Ferrell pitched for the Round Rock Express (Triple-A affiliate of the Houston Astros) last night, but he only lasted one pitch before being ejected.
This Should Make David Stern Happy
Apparently, Mark Cuban is a big fan of the Girls Gone Wild franchise.
So Many Similarities says they've put together "simply the greatest collection of sports look-alikes ever." You be the judge.
Sports Video Of The Day
Dwight Howard does a LeBron James impersonation before last night's Hawks-Magic game. (Thanks to Andrew, of Woodinville, Washington, for the tip.)

Jimmy Kimmel Video Of The Day
Here is this week's Unnecessary Censorship.

Wrestling Video Of The Day
Since I used the screengrab above, I figured I'd give you a chance to relive that classic match in which The Iron Sheik won the WWF title from Bob Backlund after Backlund's manager threw in the towel. Plus, it's nice to listen to Gorilla Monsoon every now and then.
