Ah, sweeps.

What war? Wall Street? Barack who?

Its sweeps time - and that means stories that have no great value, but still somehow bring viewers to the TV.

Here are 2 promos for the same story out of Chicago, "Date My Ex":

The promo was definitely different. To a certain extent I like it, but if you get down to it, I have no idea what the actual story is about or how the station will be telling me. Is it a website? Wtf is this about?

Actually, it's not the promo that should be called into question, but the news dept's special report. The promo itself isn't bad really considering the subject matter. Seems like this should be a lame pitch for a new TV reality show.
