Mid-Weeks

GRAMMY FEVER, SALES-PREDICTION AMBIGUITY EDITION: This week's midweek chart is expanded a bit and builds in a lot of speculation about who will get digital lifts from their Grammy performances this weekend.

Speaking of ambiguity, if you're planning to stride across the red carpet on Grammy night, please consult CBS' memo regarding the avoidance of nipples, butt cracks and thong-like costumes. (2/7p)
