This Week's Sweeps Schedule

Here’s a look at what we’re scheduled to see during this, the first full week of February sweeps.

*In the category of things I couldn’t possibly make up, this episode is titled “Three Hookers and a Philly Cheesesteak.” I put it on the schedule because it features Melanie Lynskey (Rose) and it’s quite possibly the next-to-last “Men” we’ll see this season.
