Thanks to everyone for the nice comments about the audio link from yesterday. I had to laugh that so many people were surprised that I have a Southern accent, mostly because to my ears, I don’t. I mean, my mom is from New York City, my dad from Baltimore, so in my mind, I sound just like them. But I guess living in the South since the age of three means you get an accent, like it or not. And honestly, I kind of like it.
Okay, now onto the big news: rumor has it that FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS IS ON THE VERGE OF GETTING CANCELED. Can I just say that I broke out in a cold sweat when I read about this on Meg Cabot’s blog yesterday? I know that NBC has stuck with this show even though the ratings aren’t great, and it’s a good thing because it IS the best show on TV, hands down. The thought of not knowing what happens to Smash, or to Jason Street, or Lyla and Riggins…I can’t even handle the thought. In fact, now I’m sweating again. So please help to make NBC think twice before they give up on FNL for good.
Check out Meg’s blog for a complete list of links to help save the show, but here are two: Save Friday Night Lights, and the mailing address for NBC (so you can put your anger/pleas/Riggins love in writing!)
