> RAW RATINGS- After a disappointing, yet, understandable 3.8 rating on Christmas
Day, RAW bounced back to a 4.5 composite with a 6.9 share on New Year's
Day. The first hour received a 4.3 with a 6.2 share while the second did
a better 4.7 with a 7.6 share. Quarter hour breakdowns are as follows:
3.9, 4.1, 4.3, 5.0, 4.8, 4.7, 4.8, 4.7 and 4.6 for the overrun. Just for
comparison, Grease, which aired on TNT in Nitro's spot received a 1.7
rating, with a 2.5 share. (Scherer) With no more Monday Night Football
on ABC starting from next Monday, the second hour of RAW will be
unopposed so to speak so the numbers should go up once again. However,
that all remains to be seen.
> WEEKEND RATINGS- Livewire did a 1.0 rating, with a 2.6 share; Superstars did a brand
spanking new record low 0.6 with a 1.7 share; Heat did a 1.7 with a 3.0
> WWF MUSIC VOLUME 5 PRE-ORDER!- Great news for WWF fans, the latest WWF featuring theme songs of the

> RECENT BUYRATES- The Wrestling Observer released the buyrates of the last two WWF
pay-per-views of the year 2000. Survivor Series received approximately
400,000 buys which translates to a 1.0 buyrate. For one of the "big 4"
PPVs, that must be considered as a huge disappointment. Armageddon
currently is around 465,000 buys, or a 1.16 buyrate. More WWF buyrates

> MORE RUMORS ABOUT THE SALE- Several rumors are starting to wake up from the dead once again
regarding the WCW sale. The latest is that a deal could be announced as
early January 15th, which happens to be...a Monday night! The Eric
Bischoff-led team of investors are currently the heavily rumored to take
over WCW, which once again would see the 10th, or 11th, or 12th "new
era" in World Championship Wrestling. If Bischoff goes back to WCW's
driving seat, it could spell trouble for some of the younger stars who
are enjoying a piece of the spotlight. A Hogan return would be a default
choice for Bischoff, possibly even Savage, or heck, even Warrior.
Bischoff likes to use the old stars instead of pushing up and coming
wrestlers. Also, Vince Russo - who's currently on the sidelines - would
probably be given the pink slip as well.
> THUNDER PREVIEW- Here are the matches scheduled for tonight's Thunder broadcast on TBS.
Shane Helms vs Jamie Knoble; Chuck Palumbo & Sean O'Haire vs The Misfits
In Action; Meng vs Crowbar; Goldberg vs Mark Jindrak; Reno vs The Cat;
Duggan vs Mike Awesome; Buff Bagwell vs Sarge; Sid vs Jeff Jarrett.
