First Match Announced For Tonight’s Raw, SmackDown Rating Shoots Up, More

— WWE has announced that Alberto Del Rio will face CM Punk tonight on the Raw SuperShow.

— The September 23 episode of WWE SmackDown scored a 2.3 cable rating, a sharp increase from 1.78 the week before.

SmackDown fell just shy of the 2.31 Syfy record set on February 25, which took place days after Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s return to WWE.

Friday’s program outdrew last month’s live special, which garnered a 2.2 cable rating. Viewership was identical as both episodes averaged 3.2 million viewers.

— Carlito appears at George’s Cards & Collectibles in the Oxford Valley Mall 2300 E. Lincoln Hwy Ste 220A Langhorne, Pennsylvania on Saturday, October 15 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

    Will Henderson is right. It had to be linked to the bloodbath considering we have seen the same crap on Smackdown for the past few weeks just at different time slots.

    Mark Henry = ratings

    truth is, more fans watched SmackDown this week after hearing that Cody Rhodes got busted open, and they wanted to see if the WWE showed the bloodbath.

    It is a bit surprising to me also.
    Last week’s show was just about average IMO.

    Haha, I doubt its that Jimbo, but it does seem strange that the ratings jump by so much. Does anybody know why?

    See? People are sick of Orton. As soon as he loses the title, the ratings go up.
