Feb 12 Sweep Notes:  In   2009, the sweep was moved to March due to the analog to digital transition   originally scheduled for 2/17/09.  The   transition deadline was delayed, but the sweep was still measured in   March.  The comparisons use March 09   compared to February 10.  In March 2009   WREG/CBS aired the NCAA Basketball Tournament for 2 of the 4 weeks.  In February 2010, WMC/NBC aired the Winter   Olympics from 2/12-2/28/10.  Both of   these impacted the household ratings.    The chart includes 5 years of household ratings for comparison.
