TV Guide Best Performances of 2010

8 out of 21: Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton, Friday Night Lights

Chandler and Britton's twin Emmy nominations underscore what fans have known for a while: Tami and Eric Taylor are the best couple on TV. Never has there been a more closely observed portrait of a middle-class marriage. They may fight about the mortgage, their college-aged daughter, the baby, the demands of working at a lower-income high school, or trying to squeeze in a date night, but when they make up, they talk like reasonable adults who love each other. Odd that such a thing would be rare on television.

Best Shows of 2010: Friday Night Lights

Best Drama: Friday Night Lights (Direct TV/NBC)

There was a lot of great drama on television this year (Southland was exceptional, Lost went out in glorious fashion, Men of a Certain Age was moving and effective), but I would be remiss if I didn't place FNL at the top of my list, just where it has been since the show premiered in 2006. It's hard to believe that this will be it's last season. No other show has me cheering and laughing and crying week in and week out. Even during the cringe worthy moments (Julie's affair with the TA) I can't bring myself to raise the remote and fast forward through them. I've stated time and again on Popdose that this show is the most realistic portrayal of small town life I've ever seen on television, with beautifully written and acted characters, smart direction, and perfect music selections to create the mood of each scene (not to mention W.G. Snuffy's poignant score). I love the Taylors; I love the community of Dillon, Texas; and I love Friday Night Lights.

Best 8 Sports Shows of All Time

There are multiple sports movies released at the theaters almost every year so the selection of great sports movies is numerous. Sports related television shows are not as prevalent so the good television shows based on sports are few and far between. Normally now is when I would say these are the ten best sports television shows, but really there are only eight worth mentioning.

Number 1: Friday Night Lights

Friday Night Lights just started its final season and it will be a sad day when Eric Taylor coaches his last football game. For several years now Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton have been the best kept secret on television. They have also been surrounded by some of the best young actors Hollywood has to offer. Friday Night Lights is also like the little engine that could. Low ratings nearly killed the show during the very first season and yet it managed to live on for five seasons and got to choose its end date so they can end the show properly instead of being canceled abruptly and throwing together the last episode at the last minute.
