Best sweeps story?

What's your favorite sweeps story from the local stations?

Eric Singer's return to the Texas 7 has gotten the most play, and it's a pretty interesting story, even if the presentation is a little breathless.

KOAA has had the Gazette's Tom Roeder checking in from Iraq - although I haven't seen them use Dave Bitton's video in those reports. You'd think I'd know, but, eh, not so much. Actually, I think James Jarman's prostitution and child predator stories are really their big sweeps stories.

KXRM had Mike Conneen's trip to the Philippines with a medical group (and the beer-fetching dog!).

What's KKTV's big enterprise story been? I guess I haven't seen them promoting anything sweeps-style.

I don't really care for the T-7 story. I absolutely do not like seeing a convicted killer get so much time on the tv.

I liked the old people wii story last night.
I also like the prostitution and sex crimes stuff.

Haven't seen the others.

That damned beer fetching dog! They promoted it all during the superbowl, and all it was, was a kicker! Big Deal!

How did you know it was the kicker?
The only way you'd know it was the kicker is if you watched the whole show to see where the story landed. Which means if you stayed through the whole show, then the tease worked. Which is exactly what a tease is designed to do. They never said the story was a big deal they simply teased it.
Of course it was a kicker, where else would you put it, the lead story.
