It is November sweeps season on television, when networks and local stations pull out all the stops to grab our attention.
"You should expect some special shows, some big movies, some big premieres of TV shows," said Paul Sweeney, a media analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence.
Also, prepare for an onslaught of ads. "You are going to see a lot of promotion by the TV networks of their programming," Sweeney said.
Results from sweeps season help set the ad revenues that local affiliates of networks can charge.
