Weekly Ratings: ‘Under the Dome,’ ‘Big Brother’ Spark CBS; NBC Wins in Demos

1 July 2015 5:53 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“America’s Got Talent” and “American Ninja Warrior” lifted NBC to the top of the summer ratings leaderboard last week, while “Under the Dome” (despite some sizable year-over-year declines) and the return of summer stalwart “Big Brother” got CBS back in the ratings game.

NBC won in adults 18-49 and 25-54 while CBS prevailed in total viewers, according to live plus same-day estimates from Nielsen for June 22-28.

“America’s Got Talent” (2.6/10 in 18-49, 11.07 million viewers overall) was the week’s No. 1 series in both demos and total viewers, tying with Bet’s annual “Bet Awards” among all programs in 18-49, and “American Ninja Warrior” (1.8/7 in 18-49, 6.03 million viewers overall) remained in the top 10. “Talent” and “Ninja Warrior” also have been repeating well for NBC, with encores of both shows on Wednesday cracking the week’s top 15.

Newsmagazine “Dateline” pitched in for NBC too, with its Thursday edition drawing the »

What Happened After WWE Raw Went Off The Air? (June 29)

30 June 2015 8:42 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Monday night Raw ended with Bray Wyatt posing over a fallen Roman Reigns. Prior to that, The Authority worked together to destroy Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns.

After Raw ended, there was no post-show match like there usually is. Instead, babyface wrestlers Dolph Ziggler, R-Truth and Ryback ran out to save the good guys. They cleared the ring of the evil Authority group by hitting their finishing move on them.

It was noted by some fans that Ryback took the time to greet the fans at ringside by high-fiving a lot of the kids. That’s a moment those kids in Washington, DC will never forget.

Normally there is a post show dark match, but they likely didn’t do it because several wrestlers had an early flight to Singapore for WWE’s three day tour that includes the Singapore show as well as a Japan live event »

20 Wtf Moments From WWE Raw (June 29)

30 June 2015 8:15 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Monday Night Raw has been on a roll for some time now. Well, compared to some of the utter drivel we have bore witness to over the past few years at least…

With Brock Lesnar not scheduled for this week’s episode, many would have been forgiven for lowering their expectations somewhat.

The Beast, who has appeared in the last two shows, Suplex City T Shirt and all, has certainly brought an element of star power to Monday nights. Brock’s exchanges with Seth Rollins and The Authority have harkened back to the late 90s when Vince McMahon and his corporation were ruling the WWE’s roost.

The Architect spent last weeks show trying to get his team of J &J Security and Kane back together, and did so with suspiciously great ease… This stacks the odds heavily in Seth’s favour ahead of Battleground, which means a »

WWE 2001 PPVs From Worst To Best

30 June 2015 7:24 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

You could say that 2001 was a pretty big year for the wrestling business. Of course, the major story was Vince McMahon officially winning the Monday Night Wars, buying WCW in March while also acquiring Ecw which went out of business in January.

So Vince now owned his competition. What was he going to do with it? The original idea was to continue to run WCW as a separate brand, with Monday night Raw becoming a new version of WCW Nitro. When Buff Bagwell and Booker T had a match so awful that thousands of fans left while it was still in process, WWE changed their mind.

Instead, the company decided to run with the WCW/Ecw versus WWE invasion. It was a storyline that fans had been clamouring to see for years. Unfortunately, Vince did not acquire the services of the real stars like Hulk Hogan, Goldberg and Sting, »

WWE Legend Mick Foley Praises Kevin Owens

30 June 2015 6:21 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE

Mick Foley may have officially retired but he still has a keen interest in WWE. The former WWE Champion frequently takes to social media sites Twitter and Facebook to voice his opinion on the current product. Like many, Foley has been deeply impressed by Kevin Owens’ performances since his arrival on the main roster.

In a Facebook post entitled ‘Foley Fears Owens’, Mick wrote that:

No matter where I was during the course of my career, I always felt comfortable in knowing that my character was unique and that my matches were going to be different than anyone else’s on the card. I really think that if Kevin Owens had been around while I was in my peak that he would have forced me to become a better wrestler – to increase my limited offensive arsenal, and to step up the cardio to keep up with his faster pace. »

8 Burning Questions For WWE Raw (June 29)

28 June 2015 2:11 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

When WWE Raw airs on Monday night, the promotion will be pushing toward two special events simultaneously, something that only really happens during WrestleMania season right after the Royal Rumble – before the annual February PPV takes place. But we could very well see WWE plugging both the upcoming Battleground PPV in three weeks, as well as a unique special event taking place halfway around the world.

WWE is touring Japan during the July 4th holiday and is doing a show from the Ryougoku Sumo Hall in Tokyo. What makes this live event special and worthy of being broadcast on the WWE Network is that Brock Lesnar will be competing on the card. WWE seems to have hit on the fact that Lesnar’s first in-ring appearance since WrestleMania could be a big draw, and has pumped the card up a little with an Nxt Championship match between champ »

Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello went underground Friday night ... for a little wrestling.  They showed up at a Pwg event outside of La and sat ringside, for the modest price of $60 a head. They chatted up the crowd and everyone says they were really into the whole thing. At one point, a wrestler mooned the crowd and yelled to Sofia "I'm the real Magic Mike!"

WWE Raw – Tag Team Main Event Announced

27 June 2015 12:26 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

This Monday’s WWE Raw takes place in Washington, DC and will be headlined by a tag team match. It was announced on WWE.com that the WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins will team up with Kane to take on Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns.

The match is a continuation of the storyline that took place on Smackdown when Kane ejected Roman Reigns from the building after calling him a liability, which led to Rollins beating Ambrose with a Pedigree thanks to the help of Kane and Joey Mercury.

If this match sounds familiar it’s because it was done on the May 25th edition of Raw and the May 28th edition of Smackdown.

Reigns has been thrown off his game in recent weeks thanks to the actions of Bray Wyatt, who continues to taunt him. Wyatt has used photos of Reigns’ daughter to try to get »

WWE 2K16: 10 Moments You Can’t Recreate In Stone Cold Mode

26 June 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

2K Sports

Even though it hasn’t been confirmed by WWE, 2K Sports, or Stone Cold Steve Austin himself, everyone knows that the main feature mode in WWE 2K16 will be surrounding the Texas Rattlesnake.

And even though it is arguably the worst kept secret in the history of WWE games, what the feature will actually focus on is pretty much up in the air.

Leaked video footage appeared to show Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler and Jim Ross recording commentary for the new game. The video shows the back of King and Jr as they recite their lines for the new game.

As the pair are doing their thing, they both mention one notable addition to the mode and the game’s roster as a whole, which has since been confirmed, in Shawn Michaels.

Should the footage be legit, this opens up a number of possibilities for the Texas Rattlesnake »

Weekly Ratings: NBA Finals, Strong Start for ‘Celebrity Family Feud’ Keep ABC on Top

24 June 2015 6:04 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Monster numbers for the concluding game of the NBA Finals helped ABC stay atop the primetime ratings leaderboard for a third straight week, but the net also got nice contributions from new series.

The premiere of “Celebrity Family Feud,” which last aired in primetime on NBC in 2008, performed very well on Sunday (2.4 rating/10 share in adults 18-49, 8.66 million viewers overall), edging out NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” as the week’s No. 1 series telecast in 18-49, according to Nielsen “live plus same-day” estimates.

The 2.4 rating is the best for any summer series launch since CBS’ “Under the Dome” two years ago, and the best for a summer unscripted series since NBC’s “The Voice” results show in June 2011. In total viewers, meanwhile, the Alphabet bagged its largest regular-series audience in the Sunday-at-8 hour in 10 years.

“Feud” was followed by the premiere of “Battlebots” (1.9/7 in 18-49, 5.44 million viewers overall), which was the No. »

10 Immediate Ways To Make WWE Raw Less Boring

23 June 2015 8:55 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

It’s an undeniable fact that at three hours of programming and the company lacking three hours worth of compelling talent – WWE’s Monday Night Raw is too long of a broadcast. WWE are at a strange point. As a publicly traded corporate entity, WWE has effectively outdistanced their competition in the wrestling industry, and now is a viable product in the live and streaming content marketplace.

With this being the case, WWE has to placate broadcasters and advertisers with their content, and delivering anything less than what is perceived to be the pinnacle of their brand is an issue. However, wrestling as an industry is in the throes of a revolutionary era, with three very different types of performers in one company at the same time, and in all of them attempting to find a middle ground, it’s stagnated the program.

However, there are solutions. These »

8 Conclusions From WWE SmackDown (June 18)

20 June 2015 5:22 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

This week’s SmackDown took us to New York, where Sheamus emerged to finally admit that he looks stupid. Well, except he didn’t – he acknowledged the ‘You look stupid’ chants and asked the Buffalo crowd how stupid he looks now that he is Mr. Money In The Bank.

Sheamus went on to boast that no one would stop him cashing in and becoming WWE Champion – cue Dean Ambrose, who claimed he had already stopped the Celtic Warrior by beating him on Monday Night Raw. Sheamus countered by pointing out that Dopey Dean completely forgot to steal his briefcase. Worst. Kleptomaniac. Ever. Fella.

Eventually, Kane emerged. Triple H and Stephanie have better things to do on a Tuesday (sorry, Thursday) night apparently, so The Big Red Corporate Sellout has free reign on SmackDown.

Kane made a 2-on-1 handicap match, with himself and Sheamus ganging up on the Lunatic »

10 Things WWE Raw Can Improve On For Battleground

15 June 2015 9:48 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

WWE Raw is all about promoting special events. Traditionally the idea was to tease fans and get them hooked to buy pay per views. Nowadays, in the Network Era, the idea is to hook fans into subscribing for the WWE Network.

Yet on the go home Raw for Money In The Bank, the main event angle was Seth Rollins losing to Joey Mercury. How on earth did that help to sell the special? All it did was make Rollins look weak and give the crowd a cheap pop moment.

Still, the quality of the Mitb main events helped to sell themselves. The under card was less lucky, suffering a miserable fate after just two weeks of tiny build.

That problem in lack of build shouldn’t be an issue for Battleground, as there are a full five weeks to the show. There’s a live Network broadcast of »

WWE Smackdown 11/06/15 Report – Seth Rollins vs. Dolph Ziggler and lots of Money in the Bank promotion

12 June 2015 12:53 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rollins battles frustration and Ziggler, Ryback feeds and Neville steaks his claim on the briefcase just three days before Money in the Bank

The final show before Money in the Bank opened with a bang (well, a crowd pop). Dean Ambrose’s music hits as the commentators are still reminding us of this Sunday’s PPV.

Ambrose’s promo is essentially a recap of his week with the absconded WWE World Heavyweight Championship, including his involvement on Monday Night Raw. During this spot, the WWE are not-so-subtly reminding us all that they have an Instagram…

This speech logically moves onto Ambrose proclaiming that he will win at Monday in the Bank. Continuing this tried-and-tested formula, Rollins charges out, insulting his challenger and the crowd. Ambrose presents Rollins with the Championship, which he then admits is just a replica. Supposedly Ambrose has lost the belt in New Orleans and scampers out to go find it. »

Interview: WWE’s Neville

The Money in the Bank ladder match seems like the perfect environment for a risk-taker like Neville. The “Man That Gravity Forgot” will compete with six other big names for a briefcase dangling high in the air at Money in the Bank on Pay-Per-View and WWE Network. The winner secures a guaranteed WWE world championship opportunity. Neville’s transition from the Nxt developmental brand to the main roster has been a smooth one. The “Altitude Era” began with the Englishman’s surprise introduction to audiences of Monday Night Raw in March. “It was all so surreal,” Neville said. “Obviously, there were the butterflies, … Continue reading →

Two WWE Hall Of Famers Contact Tyson Kidd Concerning His Neck Injury

11 June 2015 9:51 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE

Neck injuries are nothing new in pro wrestling, but two WWE Hall of Famers are particularly familiar with neck injuries and the effect that they can have on the longevity of a wrestler’s career.

Stone ColdSteve Austin experienced years of neck problems, stemming from a stinger suffered during a match with Owen Hart at SummerSlam 1997, before finally retiring from the ring in the spring of 2003. According to a report this week from Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Austin contacted Tyson Kidd recently after hearing of the neck injury Kidd suffered during a match with Samoa Joe prior to WWE Raw in San Antonio.

Adam Copeland, better known to WWE fans as Edge, also recently contacted Kidd to discuss his neck injury and road to recovery. Edge is also no stranger to neck surgery, having undergone neck surgeries in 2003 (which allowed him to continue to compete »

10 Legitimate WWE Hard Man Reputations Explored

11 June 2015 7:35 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

More often than not, people involved in the pro wrestling industry tend to get a false sense of toughness. Now, backing up just a little, there’s an argument to be made that simply being involved in such a legitimately arduous business requires at least some degree of mental and physical strength, but the fact that wrestling is far more exciting when performers co-operate (as opposed to going into business for themselves) cannot be ignored.

John Bradshaw Layfield – once considered one of the WWF/WWE’s roughest and toughest – had his reputation taken down a notch or two by an extremely unlikely source. Throwing his weight around, Layfield was knocked on his ass by the diminutive announcer, Joey Styles, during a backstage confrontation several years ago, putting paid to his supposed toughness.

Contrast that with the guts and pain tolerance that Triple H showed in 2001, managing to finish »

Everything you need to know about Daredevil's new vigilante Punisher

10 June 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are getting the hero they've been clamouring for as The Punisher makes his return to screens in season two of Daredevil.

Frank Castle will be out to clean up Hell's Kitchen when The Walking Dead's Jon Bernthal takes on the coveted role as the ruthless and brutal street vigilante.

However, this is far from the first time that The Punisher has appeared in live action – and it might not even be his first appearance in Marvel's shared film universe.

To get you excited for the return of Marvel's Daredevil, we look back on The Punisher's comic book origins and his previous big screen adventures.

1. His origin story was truly explosive

The story of Frank Castle began to unfold in the pages of The Amazing Spider-Man in February 1974, as a creation of iconic Marvel writer Gerry Conway, art director John Romita Sr and artist Ross Andru. »
