Re the weekly bashing of the WB’s D.C. (“This Week in D.C.,” 4/28): You said the show would not be shown April 30 because of “sweeps week.” The “sweeps” period, during which ratings are counted in order to calculate ad rates, lasts for a month, not just a week, and occurs in February, May, and November.
