Cody Rhodes is definitely not at a ‘crossroads’ with his latest endeavor ‘The Go-Big Show’ as it has had yet another successful week on TBS! The show finished in the top twenty of all original cable telecasts according to ShowBuzzDaily with a 0.31 in the 18-49 female demographic and a 0.28 in the 18-49 male demographic. The show had a stronger finish in the ratings and bested other established programs such as ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ and ‘Inside the NBA’.
During the show’s series premiere last week, the extreme talent competition, hosted by Bert Kreischer, premiered to 1.0 million total viewers and 384,000 in the advertiser-favorite demographic of adults aged 18-49. Those numbers put it ahead of other recent debuts on TBS, including “The Misery Index” and Mayim Bialik’s, celebrity competition show “Celebrity Show-Off.”
“Go-Big Show” also currently stands as the second most-watched new unscripted series on cable this season.
In other news featuring Cody Rhodes, Rhodes discussed that he had some concerns regarding his now famous dog-collar match with the late Brodie Lee. He told Chris Jericho the following during a recent edition of his ‘Talk Is Jericho podcast: “I worry about the dog collar because it’s on Jericho 30,” Rhodes noted. “I never had to worry because we balance the show in such a way that it was given the true amount of time it needed to be given. It was given the seriousness it need to be given, and then Jericho 30 was also given all the bells and whistles.”
Cody continued: “Jerry Lynn helped put it together. Jerry Lynn’s wonderful. The night before, I’m putting the collar on the chain, and we’re pulling on each other. It’s like the first time you get in the cage. You’re like, ‘ugh, this is awkward.’ The Elimination Chamber, ‘I’m supposed to take a bump here?’ I’m very worried about our necks, any whiplash, and he’s so big, but that was one of the things that made him, as you’re somebody who worked him and always sung his praises on his work. He could make something look incredibly violent. He could do it to you every night. We could have done that dog collar every night.”
