Fellow FNL fans,

I'm a graduate student at Duke University who writes about class and gender issues in popular culture. I'm currently working on an article about our mutual favorite show, Friday Night Lights! However, since there is very little information out there about who specifically is watching the show-- and perhaps more importantly, WHY they watch the show-- I've put together a brief survey, and would LOVE it if you would be willing to fill it out and e-mail it to me (or even just answer it here on the forum if you wish, I'll be checking back in). The survey questions are below; you can e-mail them to me at

Many thanks,

Sara Appel
