Emmy bump in ‘Friday Night Lights’ ratings?

FNL
The slightly-better-late-than-never parade continues for “Friday Night Lights” on NBC.

A day after the show received its first acting Emmy nominations (for series leads Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton), “Lights” finished first in broadcast at 8 p.m. Friday among adults 25-54 and men 18-49, 18-34 and 25-54 (the latter a tie). Drawing 3.7 million viewers overall, he show was second in the timeslot among adults 18-49.

NBC, of course, is airing this fourth season of “Lights” months after the episodes first ran on DirecTV, so they come somewhere between rerun and firstrun programming.

“Lights” is close to wrapping up production on a fifth season (for 2010-11) widely believed to be its final campaign, but some have begun to wonder whether last week’s little jolt of recognition might prompt yet another Hail Mary pass to extend the show. Best not to get one’s hopes up, but you’ll have to forgive a fella for hopin’.
