FEBRUARY SWEEPS STUNTS
Saturday, February 16, 2008
It's February sweeps and that means every show on television is pulling out all the stops to insure great ratings. Here's a look at some of the sweeps stunts from the past week (Feb. 10-16):
* Inside Edition scores an exclusive interview with Gary Coleman and his new wife, Shannon Price. The 40-year-old child star secretly married the 22-year-old back in August. Already, it looks like things are heading for divorce court. The couple fights all the time and Coleman's new wife admitted he has a temper.
* You know it's sweeps when The Insider brings back the anorexic twins. They have finally gained some weight but think they're fat as cows and are beginning to starve themselves againt. A look inside their refrigerator revealed only a small piece of watermelon.
* Tyra Banks walked off her talk show this week. She couldn't handle the yelling and screaming between the women from "The Bad Girls Club."
* CBS airs the Grammy Awards in attempt for good ratings, but the show was the third lowest-rated Grammy's ever.
