While There's a New Life, There's Hope for Larger Audiences

Birth. Marriage.

Two events that can change the course of any TV show — for better or for worse. It's no surprise that many series use these life-changing milestones to draw larger audiences during sweeps month.

Since May sweeps started last Thursday, it's just natural that I should present these events in the "On This Date" feature in the near right column now. I'm releasing this feature earlier than usual; so bear with me. Even though it's not complete, you'll find plenty of trivial beginnings.

Unfortunately, I have yet found an event for today, May 1. But don't worry. I already have 50 events in the database — just for the month of May! I'll continue to add events to the trivialTV database throughout the upcoming year.
