Whoever's behind Stuff White People Like should get a slow clap for making it this far. They're up to No. 87 ("Outdoor Performance Clothes") and still haven't touched fantasy sports, which are enjoyed and obsessed over by almost 20 million people.

(Nineteen million, nine hundred thousand nine hundred ninety-nine of those fantasy leaguers probably did not lose the top two scorers on their NBA fantasy league team within the past three weeks. Yao, that's gotta hurt.)

It's no surprise, though, that Friday Night Lights has been unspared while other TV series that are embraced for their nicheitude (Arrested Development, The Wire) have been touched on. Friday Night Lights is just that obscure.
