Firing up the Februrary "sweeps"

Thursday marked opening night of the four-week February “sweeps,” with ABC throwing the hardest punches with the return of its “Thank God It’s Thursday” lineup of Shonda Rhimes-produced dramas.

We have all the D-FW ratings details, plus the opening shots in the local news wars among Fox4, NBC5, Gannett8 and CBS11. The Dallas-Fort Worth TV page is your venue.

Also, enjoy a blast from the distant past with this 1985 KDFW-TV news promo starring the late Jim Varney’s Ernest P. Worrell. Yes, that actually happened, with Ernest touting the team of Clarice Tinsley, Steve Bosh, James Spann and Paul Crane. You can see it here.
