Sweeps periods always start on Thursdays. That being said, the winter period kicks off this Thursday.
Yeah, I figured it had to do with it being February 1, and February being a sweeps month. (Same with the ToC last November. though they started the 2nd, i think. hmm...)
At the risk of sounding like one of those boardies who has far too much Jeopardy! minutae knowledge, it looks like February, 2012 is going to be the first non-August month in a while (at least since I started recording Coryats 3 years ago) that will have no "regular" games in it, as Alex mentioned the College Tournament will be immediately followed by the Teachers' Tournament.
