– In what has to be taken as a bad review for the premiere of “Hogan Knows Best,” this week’s edition of the show only did a 1.3 cable rating, down from last week’s very strong 2.1. VH1 issued a press last week touting the show’s 1.9 rating in the advertiser-crucial 18-49 demographic. It should be noted that a 1.3 is a good rating for VH1, but the loss of nearly an entire ratings point is not something that can be ignored.
– AJ Styles nailed Sean “X-Pac” Waltman with some legitimately serious kicks at the onset of their match on the TNA PPV.
– The buzz for the Regal vs. Benoit match from Velocity has been strong inside and outside WWE circles. Nonetheless, pre-show Internet hype did nothing to boost the show’s cable rating.
