This Week's Sweeps Schedule...

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome once again to that magical time known as February sweeps.

And yes, I’m well aware that we’re now in March, but his is still the February sweeps period. It was just moved to March because of concerns over the digital conversion.

That’s a real bummer for NBC because, as the network of the Super Bowl, they were assured a sweeps victory. Now they’re back to having a snowball’s chance…

Here now are the sweeps events you’ll see this week…
