YOU KNOW IT'S SWEEPS WHEN...
Friday, May 14, 2010
It's May sweeps. That magical time of the year where every show on TV is new and more outrageous than ever to get ratings. As always, our favorite shows are up to all sorts of sweeps stunts. Here's some of what The Daily Edition has noticed so far:
Today Show w/ Hoda & Kathie Lee: On 5/13 the ladies went all-natural, appearing before cameras without makeup.
GMA: On 5/12 weatherman Sam Champion had surgery live on the show to remove skin cancer cells from his shoulder.
Tyra: On 5/12, Tyra did a show called "Strange Sex." It featured a female-to-man transsexual, a guy who's teaching himself to breastfeed, a woman who has orgasms all day long and first cousions who got married.
Dr. Phil: On 5/11, Dr. Phil did a show called "Dr. Phil Confronts Animal Abusers." Things got heated when Dr. Phil confronted a guy named Rob, who trains his dogs to fight. Rob admitted to shooting more than 100 dogs to death and thought there was nothing wrong with training them to fight. Dr. Phil told Rob he thought he was "despicable."
Big finales: Dancing with the Stars and American Idol both wrapped their seasons with overly long two-hour shows. It seems viewers are growing bored. Ratings for both shows were down in the double digits.
Jesse James on Nightline: (5/25) Sandra Bullock's soon-to-be ex-husband broke his silence, admitting he cheated on America's sweeheart. He claimed he's a victim of child abuse and said he wishes he wasn't getting a divorce.
