WWE Raw Garners Lowest Rating Since May

17 September 2014 12:41 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

WWE and its flagship program, Monday Night Raw, have been suffering as of late. The global wrestling entity can’t seem to hit its stride or find an engaging storyline to hook viewers. The past few weeks especially have featured some lackluster Raw broadcasts, drawing harsh criticism from viewers and the wrestling community. However, this past Monday’s broadcast has brought about a new low point.

Much was said about WWE’s seemingly haphazard booking of the September 15th edition of Raw. The John Cena/Brock Lesnar segment was featured not during the main event slot but midway through the show’s second hour. Reportedly, this was an attempt to capture some of the NFL’s Monday Night Football audience — as the featured game was in halftime during the Lesnar/Cena brawl. As such, Mark Henry and Rusev closed out another awkward edition of Raw.

Why Cena And Lesnar Didn’t Main Event WWE Raw

16 September 2014 2:07 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

If you watched Monday’s edition of Raw then you probably noticed the order of the show was a bit different from what we were used to seeing. It started out with John Cena threatening Paul Heyman and telling him he had until “halftime” to produce Brock Lesnar or else Cena would beat up Heyman. Maybe some fans thought halftime meant halfway through Raw, which would have been about 9:30pmET. Instead what Cena meant was halftime of the Monday night NFL game between Philadelphia and Indianapolis.

As soon as halftime of the NFL game hit around 10pmET, Cena was on screen with Heyman doing their angle that brought out Lesnar. It led to a brief brawl with Cena getting the upperhand on Lesnar before security came down to the ring to break it up. What was bizarre about it is that it was an angle done to »

10 Craziest WWE Live TV Moments

16 September 2014 12:49 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

For over twenty years, Monday Night Raw has come (mostly) live into our homes, changing the way we look at professional wrestling. There have been many celebrations of the show’s history, and moments such as Steve Austin’s beer bath, Hulk Hogan’s return in Montreal, Mick Foley’s title win, and the Bret Hart-Shawn Michaels embrace are sure to live on forever, immortalized in DVDs and network specials.

Still, there’s always an issue with running live TV – no matter how big the broadcast (as those who watched Super Bowl Xlvii can attest), anything can happen and things can often go wrong. The more than 1100 episodes of pro wrestling’s flagship show have given us plenty of opportunity to see the outrageous, bizarre, and downright unpleasant happen. Technical difficulties, unruly fans, and the wrestlers themselves have all been to blame, but the result has »

10 Most Epic WWE Smackdown Moments

13 September 2014 12:25 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

WWE Smackdown recently turned 15 years old without much hype or attention from WWE at all. That’s nothing new because Smackdown has felt like WWE’s “B” show for a very long time.

It started as a weekly show on Thursday nights in August of 1999 as a complement to Monday Night Raw, which started in 1993. Raw is the live show while Smackdown is taped on Tuesdays. It was originally aired on Thursday nights, but they moved it to Fridays in 2008. Recently there were reports that suggested that it might go back to Thursday nights this year. Apparently that’s not happening this year. Maybe in the future.

When the brand extension started in May of 2002, it made Smackdown more of a must see show. The idea was that some wrestlers were only on Raw while others were only on Smackdown. They weren’t on the same show unless »

Jerry Springer Talks about the Nikki Bella and Brie Bella Feud

8 September 2014 11:44 PM, PDT | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

In light of the major feud that has broken out between Nikki Bella and Brie Bella, Jerry Springer has been called in to stage an intervention between the Total Divas stars!

The longtime talk show host, who also happens to be married to a twin, thinks that there's a lot more to the situation than meets the eye.

"I think it's something deeper," Jerry explained. "Because if you're twin sisters, you wouldn't let something like the Stephanie McMahon situation break you up. I mean, you've had a life together. There's probably some resentment on one by the other and so I think there's a deeper issue there. This is either the straw that broke the camel's back or it's the thing that set it off.

What Can We Expect From WWE Raw Season Premiere Tonight?

8 September 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Tonight’s edition of Monday Night Raw will be in the Baltimore Arena in Baltimore, Maryland. WWE is hyping tonight’s show as the season premiere, despite Raw running uninterrupted week-to-week. A couple of huge announcements have already taken place in regard to tonight’s program.

It was announced last week that Jerry Springer — the ex-mayor of Cincinnati, Ohio and former television talk show host — will be making an appearance tonight in Baltimore. Springer is set to host an intervention between Nikki and Brie, the Bella Twins. Will Springer be able to maintain order between the two warring siblings, or will Nikki and Brie’s quarreling turn physical?

Also announced for tonight are two big matchups. Roman Reigns and Randy Orton are set to square off, as Reigns continues to do battle with the Authority on a weekly basis. Furthermore, fans will witness a main event steel cage »

Weekly Ratings: ‘Simpsons’ Marathon Puts Fxx Atop Week’s Cable Rankings in Young Adults

4 September 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Simpsons” has helped put Fxx on the TV map for many Americans, as a marathon of the long-running animated comedy lifted the nascent network to ratings heights.

Last week, Fxx was the top-rated primetime cable network in adults 18-34 (616,000 viewers), according to Nielsen — and not too far behind overall leaders NBC (660,000) and Univision (650,000). This is especially impressive because Fxx, which launched just one year ago, is available in only 74 million homes.

It also ranked second among cable networks in adults 18-49 (932,000), behind only Espn, and eighth in total viewers (1.43 million).

Over the course of its 12-night run, the 552-episode “Simpsons” marathon has often drawn five and six times what Fxx had averaged in the timeslot this summer. The network had hovered around the No. 50 mark in primetime 18-49 rankings in the weeks leading up to the arrival.

Overall for the week of August 25-31, it was NBC — boosted by »

6 Reasons Last Night’s WWE Raw Made You Change The Channel

2 September 2014 6:14 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Not every episode of Raw can be a home run. That’s a given. It takes several elements all interacting perfectly for Raw to hit one out of the park: an electric crowd, fired-up performers, compelling drama and well-crafted segments. Take any one or two out of the equation, and you’re likely left with a subpar episode that leaves you feeling a little flat.

But every now and again, there’s an episode that isn’t just missing one or two of the vital ingredients, it’s missing virtually all of the elements that make for an entertaining evening of professional wrestling. And Monday night’s Raw really was lacking in many of these areas. It was downright painful to watch at times, which is disappointing when you consider that WWE is heading into Night of Champions with its mission to win over fans whose WWE Network subscriptions were expiring. »

WWE Raw Rating Dips Against Emmy Awards Competition

28 August 2014 12:14 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

The 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards was held on Monday, August 25th. Awards shows are often highly viewed special programs for whichever network they air on. The Emmys, like most award shows, is typically aired on a Sunday night. NBC — which aired the program — hit a bit of a snag this year with their preferred scheduling.

In 2006, NBC acquired the rights to air the National Football League’s Sunday Night Football broadcast. Since then, NBC has typically scheduled the Emmy Awards for the Sunday before Labor Day weekend, so as to avoid conflict with their NFL programming. However, this year, the MTV Video Music Awards aired on Sunday, August 24th. It was then decided by NBC to avoid going head-to-head with the VMAs and to instead air the Emmy broadcast on Monday. This was the first time since 1976 that Emmys were aired on a Monday instead of a Sunday. »

Emmys Top Twitter TV Ratings, But Can’t Compete With Oscars

26 August 2014 2:28 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Emmy Awards topped Nielsen’s Twitter TV ratings Monday night, beating out “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” on VH1 and “WWE Monday Night Raw” on USA. More than 1.1 million tweets from 370,000 unique authors were seen by a unique audience of 8.8 million people, resulting in 207.1 million total Twitter TV impressions.

It was enough to win the night, with “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” coming in second with 974,000 tweets from 174,000 authors for a unique audience of 1.9 million people, but falls short of the 2014 Academy Awards on ABC. The Oscars resulted in 11.2 million tweets from 2.8 million unique authors, for an audience of about 13.9 million people and 1.04 billion total Twitter TV impressions.

The Oscars featured host Ellen Degeneres’ selfie tweet with Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt and others, which was retweeted nearly 3 million times by the following afternoon and temporarily caused the social media site to temporarily crash.

Univision Wins Second Straight Week Among Young Adults

20 August 2014 5:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC again edged ahead of its Big Four rivals in adults 18-49 last week, but Univision has made it two straight frames as the top-rated network overall in the key demo.

With its year-round slate of firstrun telenovelas, the Spanish-language Univision typically stacks up better relative to the major networks in the summer than during the traditional TV season. It won a couple of times last summer too.

The network is especially dominant among the younger 18-34 segment of the prime 18-49 demo, and has now won four consecutive weeks in this age group.

Discovery, meanwhile, led cable in key demos with its Shark Week — setting ratings records for the event in women 18-49, women 25-54 and adults 25-54. It also stood as the No. 1 network on all of television in men 18-49.

Overall, according to “live plus same-day” Nielsen estimates for the week of Aug. 11-17, Univision finished on »

Chael Sonnen Says He Got A Call From The WWE

14 August 2014 12:38 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Gregory Payan/AP/Press Association Images

Chael Sonnen has had a hell of a rough summer. Now he says the WWE gave him a call – but it’s not what you might expect.

Sonnen, three-time Ufc title challenger, and a master on the mic who talked his way into fights more than fighting his way into them, was suspended for two years by the Nsac in July after failing a pair of drug tests. He also lost his job as a broadcaster with Fox Sports, something the Ufc, who have generally had Sonnen’s back over the years, agreed with.

That’s not to say that Sonnen has been out of the public eye: this past weekend, he competed at Metamoris 4, a Brazilian Jiu-jitsu competition over which the Nsac has no authority, as there is no striking involved. Although he lost to Andre Galvo after starting strong, the bout kept »

CBS’ ‘Big Brother’ Tops Weekly Ratings — At Least For Now

13 August 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

For the first time this summer, CBS reality stalwart “Big Brother” moved ahead of an original installment of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” as the week’s most popular program among young adults.

Of course, neither of these shows may be atop the list when Nielsen issues its “live plus 7″ numbers, which include a full week’s worth of DVR playback. Reality shows in general don’t gain as much in delayed viewing as scripted series, especially 10 p.m. dramas, and it’s not uncommon for them to get knocked down a few pegs in the rankings when comparing “live plus same-day” to “live plus 7.”

In recent weeks for example, CBS’ “Under the Dome” has averaged a lift of 1.3 ratings points in adults 18-49, enabling it to leapfrog reality series like “The Bachelorette” and “Hell’s Kitchen.” A similar lift for last Monday’s telecast would figure to vault the second-year drama from No. »

Nwo To Reunite On WWE Raw To Take Down The Authority?

10 August 2014 12:22 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

WWE is heavily advertising Hulk Hogan’s birthday bash for this week’s Monday Night Raw, including a reunion with former nWo cohorts Scott Hall and Kevin Nash. This will serve as the first program featuring all three wrestling legends since an episode of Tna Impact over four years ago.

After news broke of the reunion, Hulk Hogan took to Twitter this weekend to hype the show. He said; “The baddest crew on the planet, we could straighten out the Authority.” The last time Hall, Nash and Hogan were together on WWE TV as the New World Order was WrestleMania 18 in 2002.

As of now there isn’t much information as to what exactly the “Hulk Hogan Birthday Bash” will entail. It will be interesting to see if the three do indeed have any interaction with The Authority. Both Hall and Nash are well-known friends of Triple H and »

Hulk Hogan Set For Nwo Reunion On Monday’s WWE Raw

6 August 2014 1:58 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

We have reported for weeks about how Hulk Hogan will the be the guest star on Raw this coming Monday for his 61st birthday on August 11th. It was promoted by WWE on Raw, so Hogan’s presence will be a big part of Monday’s show in Portland.

There will also be some surprises because WWE hasn’t advertised other special names for Raw although it was teased by Scott Hall on Twitter. It’s now been confirmed by PWInsider that both Scott Hall and Kevin Nash have been booked for Raw.

As wrestling fans know, those two along with Hogan started the New World Order in WCW in July of 1996 and went on to dominate WCW for years as the top heel faction in the company. Once WCW died, they brought the Nwo to WWE for a brief run in 2002 that didn’t really go very well. »

NFL, Hot Reality Shows Keep NBC On Top of Weekly Ratings

6 August 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The return of football combined with two nights of “America’s Got Talent” and a season high for “American Ninja Warrior” to put NBC atop the demo rankings last week as the net continued its hot summer.

The Peacock, which also saw solid scores for recent reality additions “Running Wild with Bear Grylls” and “Food Fighters,” has finished on top in adults 18-49 (either outright or tied) in eight of 11 weeks this summer. It’s only finished lower during the two weeks of the NBA Finals on ABC and the frame including the Major League Baseball All-Star Game on Fox.

Univision, coming off its second straight first-place 18-49 finish in a July sweep, was a close second among young adults for the week and joined ABC as the only broadcaster to improve upon the comparable week of a year ago.

Overall, according to same-night Nielsen estimates for the week of July 28-Aug. »
