Local news rating stunt

In an effort to increase newscast ratings, and be able to charge more for commercials, a local TV station is giving tablet computers away. Viewers are asked to watch the newscasts for a keyword and enter using their eMail address and the keyword over the Internet. Apparently some "random" process is being used to pick the winners from the entrants each time. November 21 is to be the last day.

Yesterday at 5:30 the keyword was MAY
Yesterday at 11:00 the keyword was THE
Today at 5:30 the keyword was FORCE
Tonight at 11:00 the keyword was BE

I'm seeing a pattern here!
