The centerpiece sketch of Tuesday's premiere, "Football Town Nights," presented as a faithful spoof of NBC's departed classic Friday Night Lights, from the atmospheric opening credits to the shot-for-shot recreation of some of its most familiar visual motifs (the coach listening to the radio in his car, or slamming his fist against the locker-room wall after his team blows it on the field). Josh Charles does a pitch-perfect job in the Kyle Chandler role, while Schumer plays his supportive wife, clutching a glass of chardonnay that grows larger with every passing scene. … [Read more...] about If You Seek Amy
