May "sweeps" turn out to be one for the books for CBS11

CBS11 made station history Thursday by sweeping a 10 p.m. "sweeps" ratings race for the first time since it launched late night newscasts 15 years ago in D-FW. But it was close -- not only at 10 p.m. but just about everywhere else, too. Our complete and fastidious report is here.
Also, the Wednesday Nielsen ratings "snapshot" charts the D-FW ratings for Fox's American Idol finale while also wondering why Fox4's 9 p.m. newscast keeps embarrassing itself in this regard.

Plus, we look at how it went on Idol during judge Simon Cowell's swan song.
