CBS11 bangs its drums loudly in preparation for February "sweeps" warfare

The annual four-week February "sweeps" ratings period starts on Thursday of this week. And CBS11 is acting as though it really wants to return to the 10 p.m. winner's circle after WFAA8 took November's golds. A new "Coming In February" promo, replete with drum beats, sets the stage for what's likely to be another down-to-the-wire battle between the two stations. Take a look on our Dallas-Fort Worth TV page, and see if it sucks you in -- at least a bit.

Plus, we take an up-close look -- ratings-wise -- at last year's most popular scripted series on basic and premium cable networks. Some of the final tabulations may surprise you, as news anchors are wont to say. Plus, Tuesday's D-FW Nielsen ratings are in as we begin another new month with this friendly reminder:

If you're shopping on Amazon anyway, give any of unclebarky.com's amazon ads a click before proceeding to make your buys. A small percentage of the purchase prices are sent back to D-FW's only completely independent local/national TV website.

As always, we greatly appreciate your readership and support.
