Junk Drawer - 11/18: What happened to Friday Night Lights?

FNL was a show I tried to catch every week for the past two seasons.  I felt it had a lot of interesting story lines coming out of the simple premise of a small town Texas high school football team.  It was my understanding that it was picked up again this season.  In fact one of my coworkers said that her nephew got the part as the new quarterback.

In a related question - would you consider it a disadvantage or advantage to have a series that dealt with high school students, knowing that at some point you would have to bring in a new group of actors and risk losing your audience when their favorite character "graduated" from the show?

Other shows I like to watch:

Chuck

The Unit

Primeavil

Survivor

Heroes (thought not as much as last season)

Lost (if I can get caught back up).
