WWE Ratings Fall, More On USA In HD, DVD News

Ryan Gray

— The USA Network will be available in High Definition to Comcast customers in most markets beginning December 6th. As I mentioned yesterday, WWE is working on getting all their programming in HD by next year.

— WWE ratings in the United Kingdom for the week ending November 18th were bad. No show drew 42,000 viewers during the week. The two highest rated shows in the genre were UFC shows including the November 17th pay-per-view on tape delay which reached 61,000 viewers (of course this is much less than what WWE PPVs draw on Sky). Ultimate Fighter was the other high-rated show drawing 42,000 viewers. (Source: WrestlingObserver)

— The Rey Mysterio: The Biggest Little Man DVD was number one on the Billboard charts for best sellers in the Pro Wrestling and MMA category last week.
