    This means the Billboard Music Awards will take place on the final Sunday of both the May “sweeps” and the 2013/2014 prime-time TV season.

    It could also end-up going against the finale of the next series of “Survivor”, since the finale of the Spring series each year usually airs on the final Sunday of the sweeps and season.
