Friday Night Lights (9 p.m. NBC) - "Let's Get it On." Coach Taylor (Kyle Chandler) returns to Dillon as a head coach, a father and a husband.

Bellamy Young ("Private Practice"), Two-Time Emmy Award Nominee Ralph Waite ("The Waltons," "Roots," "Carnivle") and Len Lesser ("Seinfeld") guest star. MAY BE DELAYED DUE TO NFL COVERAGE
