[WWE] Updates on Ratings, USA Network/UPN Preemptions, Etc.

– USA Network opened up a WWE Web site that features bios of some competitors, Divas and more. It can be found here.

– USA Network has announced three dates where RAW will be preempted in 2006:

*Due to the Westminster Dog Show, the February 13 issue will be shown Wednesday, February 15.

*There will be no RAW on August 28 due to the US Open (it will not be rescheduled).

*The Monday, September 4 episode will be shown on Friday, September 8 due to the US Open.

– Speaking of preemptions, last night’s SD — preempted in New York, LA, Boston and other markets — got a 3.0 fast national rating (5 share), which is close to what it was doing on Thursday nights. This will likely go down once the other markets are factored in.

– Final ratings for the past week:

*RAW: 3.3 cable rating, with a 5 share

*Friday Night Smackdown (last week’s): 1.7 broadcast rating, with a 3.1 share

*Velocity: 0.5 cable rating, with a 1.1 share

*Heat: 0.6 cable rating, with a 1 share

*Experience: 0.4 cable rating, with a 1.1 share
