ABC Family sacks 'Friday Night Lights'

Posted on

Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t…find Friday Night Lights on ABC Family’s schedule? There’s a good reason for that: The cable net — which began airing encores of the beloved drama over the summer — has quietly pulled the show off the air.

“As of today, Monday, Oct. 18, FNL is no longer on ABC Family’s schedule,” says a network spokesperson. “It wasn’t performing from a ratings standpoint. We moved it around the schedule, but unfortunately it wasn’t holding up.”

FNL‘s fifth and final season premieres on DirecTV Oct. 27.
