I’m not incapable of suspension of disbelief. A two hour movie that spans several years doesn’t bother me. I even kinda liked the flying luck-dragon in The Neverending Story, but that’s not the point. If you have a TV show called Friday Night Lights, why on earth would you schedule it for Tuesday night? Yes I can use the TV guide. Yes I can look things up on the Internet. But do you want to put an extra obstacle in front of a lazy ass like me who just wants to watch some mediocre TV?
It’s a show about small-town Friday night football that gets aired on a Tuesday. I get that. But what night is Monday Night Football on? Case closed.
