- This past Friday’s edition of SmackDown did a 3.2 fast national rating, with a 6.0 share. That number is very strong and continues the upward trend for WWE SmackDown as of late. The number was good enough to put the CW Network in fourth place for the night, beating out Fox.
- The Rock makes a cameo appearance in the Reno 911 Miami movie as SWAT Team Officer Rick Smith.
- Multichannel News recently ran an article on High Definition programming on television. The article featured a quote from Bonnie Hammer of the USA Network who mentioned WWE in HD by saying: “Much of our content is still shot in film, but we’re experimenting with [HD] more and more. We’re even trying to shoot [World Wrestling Entertainment] in HD. That’s kind of challenging. Does a punch hit or does it just go by? You see everything in HD. You’ve got to be very careful.” As we’ve reported here before, that is WWE’s main concern with HD as they do not want to show blows that clearly miss.
