Channel 5's Choirs Vote Ends Tonight

Voting closes at 11:59 p.m. today on Channel 5's local "Clash of the Choirs" competition, after Courtis Fuller profiles the last of his eight local choirs (the Cincinnati Boychoir) during the 5 p.m. news.

One this is clear: No way the Cincinnati Boychoir will win the online competition. Supporters for two choirs -- the Elder High School Glee Club and the Cincinnati Sound -- have generated over 95,000 votes each (or 46% each) of the 208,000 online votes over four weeks. Channel 5 really has touched a nerve here -- at least among friends and family members of the singers.

"This has been amazing. At the beginning of the month we wondered if we'd get 5,000 votes during the month, and we got 5,000 votes the first day," Fuller says. "I've received more email from this than anything I can think of in a long time."

On the 5 p.m. news Wednesday -- the last day of February ratings sweeps -- Fuller will announce the winner. The top vote-getter will perform at the Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center at 7 p.m. Saturday, as part of the show by the winning Team Lachey/Team Cincinnati choir from NBC's "Clash of the Choirs" last December. Tickets ($30) are available from the Carnegie or 859-957-1940. The winners also will sing a jingle for a News 5 promotion.

here's some sweep questions we need answered.
1. How much of an audience hit did GMC take when it moved the 7am hour to CinCW?
2. Did the simpsons beat news 5 at 11?
3. Did the Lead in of Oprah once again help 9 win the 5-630 time slot?
4. Did fox 19's superbowl promo draw more viewers to the morning show.

Don't know if it is part of the choir event, but this morning right after the library here in West Chester opened we were inundated by a boys choir fron Tucson complete with tour bus. They are all studying very quietly right now.
