-- Ted Linhart, the VP of Program Research at USA Network has announced that the Live + Following 7 days rating information for the premiere of Tough Enough is in. When those numbers were factored in, the total audience went up 19% to nearly four million viewers. Also, the 18-49 demographic went up 17% to 2.3 million viewers. There is hope that the following shows, even with the drop in ratings, will see similar increases.
-- Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's latest movie, Fast Five, is a huge hit in Australia. One out of three people in Australia who went to the movies on Thursday (the day of its premiere) went to see Fast Five, earning $2.4 million. It premieres this Friday in the United States.
-- Both the SmackDown! and RAW crews have returned from the recent tour overseas for this week's television tapings in North Carolina. The RAW crew had a 14-hour flight yesterday from Qatar to Raleigh, North Carolina. John Cena, who did not tweet during the tour, wrote the following:
"CeNation. Tour was gr8. UK was madness as usual. Qatar was unreal. I mean spectacular. It is truly a paradise in the desert. Saw great things out of ziggler, morrison, evan, Sheamus, and D.B. this makes the draft 2 morrow that much more exciting . Thanks to all for the b day wishes especially the crowd in Qatar for singing me happy b day. Moment I will never forget."
