We will also have full coverage of ECW on Sci Fi later tonight. Believe it or not, there is huge talk in Houston today regarding the debut of Wrestling Society X at 10:30pm ET tonight, which will go head-to-head with the last 30 minutes of ECW. Based on reports, tonight’s show (which features an appearance by Vince McMahon and Bobby Lashley vs. Test for the ECW Title) is being written with the goal of shutting down the WSX debut in a big way.
The “sneak preview” of Wrestling Society X on MTV this past Friday (January 26) drew a 0.43 cable rating with a 0.9 share. That is more than four times the usual 0.10 rating for that timeslot on Friday nights. It should also be noted that the average rating for MTV that day was 0.40, so it even beat out earlier primetime numbers as well.
Don’t forget, the “official” debut for Wrestling Society X is tonight starting at 10:30pm ET/9:30pm CT going head-to-head with the last 30 minutes of ECW on Sci Fi. It will be interesting to see what kind of a rating the show does tonight, especially going up against WWE programming.
