MOMMA MIA

Mia goes to see Nicole at the DiMera mansion but runs into Tony. Tony demands to know who she is. Mia says she wants her baby but rushes out when she realizes what she has said. At the Church, Will learns that Johnny will not be there so he leaves. When Tony sees Nicole, he informs her that she knows her secret. Nicole is stunned but Tony tells her he won’t tell anyone. Tony tells her he met Mia. Nicole tells him that Mia is a girl who is blackmailing her but Tony doesn’t believe her. The christening begins and Lexie and Tony are the godparents. Nicole is unsure what Tony will do, but ultimately Sydney is christened. Meanwhile Will is at the pier when he sees a crying Mia. Will wants to help her but she declines. He tells her that if she wants to find him, he will be at the Brady pub. Later she arrives there and the two get to know one another. When Mia finds out who Will is, Mia runs out. Mia shows up at the Church and can’t believe she sees "her" baby.

Tony convinces Melanie to become partners with him. She agrees and goes to see Max. He refuses to give her the last set of blueprints. Melanie discovers that he keeps them at the Cheatin' Heart. Melanie finds out the combination of the safe and steals the plans, giving them to Tony. Tony tells Melanie he will be in touch. Melanie fears that Tony will double cross her. Max confronts Melanie when he finds that the plans are gone. Melanie then goes to Phillip and tells him that there still is a copy of the plans. She tells Phillip that Tony tricked her into giving them to him. Phillip runs out to see Tony and Stephanie phones Brady to warn him about Phillip.

SAVING GRACE

EJ and Nicole decide to have Sydney christened. Nicole panics when Stefano mentions that they should consider the convent for the christening. Nicole lies about why she was at the convent. Sami checks on Grace and when she finds out she is sick, Sami can’t help. Rafe offers to go instead. Will sees Sami and tells her that Lucas and Chloe eloped. When Sami, EJ, and Nicole meet for the custody exchange, EJ invites Sami to Sydney’s christening. Sami calls Rafe and informs her that she must find a way to bring Grace home. At the christening, Nicole is happy that Sami shows up so that she can see how happy EJ is with Nicole and Sydney. Sydney spits up on EJ and Sami offers to hold her while EJ cleans up. EJ sees how right Sydney looks in Sami’s arms. EJ tells Sami that it could be the two of them christening their baby. Sami tells EJ that they have both moved on.

Sweeps lasts for 4 weeks.  Things are a little screwed up this year because of the change to DTV that was supposed to take place on Feb. 17 [but was postponed].  Because of that, February sweeps started this past Thursday, March 12, and will run into April.  I believe May sweeps will still be in May, so there will only be a couple of weeks in between.

What would the DTV switch have to do with soap sweeps?  Channels are just switching from analog to digital how does that affect the soaps?  I just don't get it.

Oh geez, maybe we dumbies won't know how to do it and screw up.   Our local NBC station has dropped it's analog and is only DTv now.   I don't understand what Sweeps is all about but it seems like the writers go bonkers like weirwolves when there is a full moon .

Sweeps weeks are run to impress sponsors. That week, the numbers of viewers, broken down into categories of age and gender, are presented to prospective sponsors by the networks.

Naturally, each network and show pulls out all the stops to get the most viewers.

This year there was a new wrinkle - DTV.

Since some older customers, with older TVs, might have been confused about making the switch, or had the wrong antenna, and lost the signal, they might not have been able to watch the shows during sweeps week, and their numbers would have been lost.

Sooooooooo, they are giving these people a chance to catch up with the technology, so they can be counted.

I'll tell ya, I am glad I have cable, and that this area has cable, because I know of so many people with rabbit ears, who thought they just had to get a converter box and they'd be all set - only to find out they could only get two or three channels - badly - and needed a whole new expensive roof antenna.

This whole thing has been a fiasco - and I feel bad that in these economic times, older people who had only the older TVs and rabbit ears have been deprived of news and entertainment.

Thanks, once again, big business CEOs. I hope you sleep well at night.

I'm one of the ones without cable available.   I bought a great set of rabbit ears from Radio Shack with a remote control and get some good reception but then I have a TV remote, a converter remote, an antennae remote and then the VCR/DVD remote and it's NUTSO!   I have a DVD recorder and I think tomorrow it goes back.   It only receives the strong stations and the quality of recording is rotten.   So I can record only 4 stations.   And the stupid thing doesn't allow you to select DTV stations manually.   
What I don't get is just how do they count all those people?    Do they really know what I am watching with rabbit ears?
