NEW FEATURE. Welcome to the first Broadcast News & Late Night Series report, a weekly round-up of broadcast series that air outside primetime such as the 6:30 pm weeknight newscasts (that are enjoying quite a resurgence lately), the 7-9 am news and interview shows and the late night comedy series. Other weekly news and late night series such as Saturday Night Live and the Sunday morning talk/discussion shows are also included. Each week’s post will also include comparisons to the same week last year. You can also search for other available weeks with the link at the bottom of this post.

Normally, this post will go up each Tuesday morning for the week ending two days before. For example, come back Tuesday morning for the week of April 13-19.

At this time we are not tackling the daytime daypart (the game shows, soap operas and talk shows weekdays in the late morning and early afternoon), but remember that we do cover weekend sports regularly in Skedball, also each Tuesday morning.
