    I hope so. It's the only one I really care about this year.

    Yes, definitely don't worry about P&R. It's NBC's second highest-rated comedy after The Office, and the one that gets the most critical acclaim. If they canceled P&R, it would mean they were basically blowing up their entire schedule and starting from scratch, which is highly unlikely.

    Awesome.

    I hope the networks come up with some good new sitcoms soon. I like Whitney, but I'm not sure it'll make it.

    Actually, most "experts" are predicting that Whitney will be back as well. NBC has too many other holes to fill. NBC already canceled Free Agents and will certainly be canceling Chelsea, Bent, and Best Friends Forever. Up All Night is on the bubble. Whitney is a likely renewal.

    But Whitney has a new talk show.. Can she do that and the sitcom at the same time? (Dunno if she actually does anything regularly on 2 Broke Girls.)

    Why do sweeps even exist any more? I know they use them to set rates but it seems unnecessary.

    Of course the old insane days when networks didnt even air half their regular shows and instead filled them with specials and miniseries. Never made sense to me.

    With the way ratings data is collected these days can someone more knowledgable explain the persistence of sweeps?

    It seems to me ending sweeps might be one way to see the major networks to start inching towards the 21st century.

    I will hazard an advanced ignorant guess. Sweeps still allows the largest and most accurate set of demographic viewing data. Although that seems a bit unlikely.

    Joel McHale has no problem squeezing The Soup into his schedule.

    Sweeps is still important to local news, although I wonder if a move from May to April might even do them more good these days.

    I vaguely recall reading that she is not involved in 2BG. Something about she didn't expect both shows (back when they were pilots) to be picked up, and when they were, she put her time into Whitney, and handed 2BG off to someone else.

    Doesn't mean she doesn't still collect her creator's check.:)

    It has to do with local ad rates. There are enough people meters in the big cities to get reasonable accurate data for those markets every day of the year. But the smaller markets don't get good information about their ratings from the daily people meter results. During the four sweeps periods each year, Nielsen sends out a lot more manual journals/surveys all over the country and the results of those surveys during those sweeps months help the local affiliates to set their ad rates for things like news, local programming, syndicated shows, etc.

    That 0.4 doesn't bode well for Nikita getting another season.
