NBC is now confirming that which Mike uncorked two and a half hours ago: the freshman drama Friday Night Lights has been given a full-season order. In making the announcement, NBC entertainment prez Kevin Reilly hails FNL as "authentic, poignant," then notes, "Critics and devoted fans have supported the show with well-deserved praise for the executive producers, writers and exceptionally talented cast."

Score yet another "W" for quality television. At this rate, Everwood will be back by mid-season.
