11. 'Friday Night Lights' (2006-'11)
Friday Night Lights had a rough road. It was interrupted by the writer's strike after a very big Season 1, and jettisoned to DirecTV's (now-defunct) 101 Network. The fans kept the show alive and it did last five seasons, but none can touch the first. The team breaks up, Riggins (Taylor Kitsch) and others graduate, and nothing is the same. Although, the show does regain some of that first season magic when Michael B. Jordan joins the cast and Coach Taylor (Kyle Chandler) changes schools.
