DirecTV’s broadcast of the season premiere of “Friday Night Lights” may have only attracted 400,000 of the satellite TV service’s viewers, but the airing still marks a win for the show, the New York Times reports. “FNL’s” audience is down sharply from the 6.2 million who watched on NBC last season, but it stacked up as the seventh-ranked basic cable show seen by DirecTV subscribers during its timeslot, the paper says. DirecTV will show new episodes of the series over the next four months before the “Lights” makes its season three broadcast debut on NBC in February, an arrangement that kept the critical darling alive.
