- This past Fridays 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 were experimenting with [HD]
more and more. Were even trying to shoot [World Wrestling
Entertainment] in HD. Thats kind of challenging. Does a punch hit or
does it just go by? You see everything in HD. Youve got to be very
careful. As weve reported here before, that is WWEs main concern
with HD as they do not want to show blows that clearly miss.
