Football has been under way for several weeks now, so the next best part of fall is finally here -- the new TV season. The best show on TV, which just happens to be a sports show, Friday Night Lights begins Wednesday on DIRECTV only. It won't air on NBC until February, which has some people upset. Meanwhile, NFHell.com has managed to combine the NFL and the new TV season by comparing each Week 4 game to a fall TV show. And the World of Isaac tests your TV knowledge with this fun game. Oh, and the Blake Lively picture? That's only there because she's one of our favorite fall TV women, and she cracks this list, sent in by Nick, of L.A., that features the 15 hottest women on television.
On Thursday, we linked to video of an unbelievable catch by Morgan State's Edwin Baptiste. We said it could've been the best catch ever, which resulted in you guys sending in several other worthy candidates. Justin Porterfield, of Charlotte, N.C., Kevin, of South Carolina, and Greg, of Athens, Ga., e-mailed us this clip of A.J. Green. Dustin, of Atlanta, nominates Calvin Johnson's "Spiderman" catch. Harold Love, of Sheffield, Ala., and Curtis, of Leeds, Ala., say Tyrone Prothro's grab in 2005 is tops. Ryan Wilkinson, of Charlotte, N.C., goes old school with Western Washington's Chris Moore.
With the Cubbies on the cover of this week's issue of Sports Illustrated, Home Run Derby decided to research how the North Siders have handled the SI Cover Jinx in the past.

So after receiving several e-mails from female readers who wanted to see Hot Clicks feature hot male athletes just once, we attempted to do so last Friday. However, we also tried to keep the guys happy by using photos of those men with attractive women. The plan backfired and we got even more complaints. We also received a bunch of e-mails that pointed out certain athletes who were omitted from the gallery. So, here is attempt No. 2 to please the women readers of Hot Clicks. We took the men from the last gallery, added in several suggestions that were sent to us, and used photos of the guys only. Hopefully this will put us back in the good graces of the women out there.

Chris, of Loveville, Md., writes, "Since it is rivalry week for 'Skins fans, here is a GREAT video from the '80s of some Redskins greats thanking their fans! Hail to the Redskins! Dallas will fall!" We're suckers for bad '80s videos, especially ones that feature sports teams, so we had to link to this. Whether you care about the Redskins or not, we urge you to check out the fine dancing that takes place at the 1:20 mark.
When Chris Cooley's brother Tanner gets on his blog, dresses up as a character he calls "Vladimir" and does a dead-on Borat impression while trash talking against the Cowboys, we can't avoid giving you another Redskins video.
Since we started Hot Clicks by talking TV, how about some Seinfeld bloopers.
