First Big Sweeps Get: Diane Sawyer’s Rihanna Interview

Yes, it’s November sweeps where national and local news outlets air their best stories and big interviews. Later this month, you’ll hear from Sarah Palin and Janet Jackson. Just last night, NBC amortized its deal with Jenna Bush as she appeared on “The Jay Leno Show” fronting the 9@9 interview segment featuring her mother, former first lady Laura Bush (it was 9@9 instead of 10@10 adapting to the Central time zone.)

This morning, part I of Diane Sawyer‘s exclusive interview with Rihanna. And you have to give credit to the GMA producers for stating, in the intro to the story, that tomorrow’s part II will include Rihanna describing “in detail what happened in the car with Chris Brown.”
