ECW & Smackdown Ratings; Former WWE Stars at TNA Tapings; More
Last night’s edition of ECW on Sci-Fi scored a 1.4 cable rating, slightly down
from last week’s 1.5 rating.
The 7/25 edition of WWE Friday Night Smackdown drew a final 2.4 broadcast
rating. This is the same rating the show drew last week.
Former WWE wrestlers Todd & Michael Shane (The Gymini) were backstage at
the iMPACT! taping last night.
To update on reports yesterday regarding the scheduled combined Raw/ECW
TV tapings on December 1 in Washington, D.C. at the Verizon Center, I can
confirm that this was done to accommodate the international touring travel
needed for the company’s annual “Tribute to the Troops” return to Iraq. It
should be noted that talk of pushing ECW tapings to Monday night’s is not
a completely dead issue at this point, but it doesn’t appear it will be happening
anytime soon this year as the rest of the schedule has been pretty much
finalized at this point.
