Apparently it offical and it started tonight with almost no announcment. If it had one I didn't hear it. For those of you who care, if you don't here it is anyways, apparently Velocity jumped back to late Saturday Night at 11pm ET/10pm CT. Luckily I took a nap and caught it. Anyways...I guess the .5 rating wasn't cutting it.

I got to catch some of it tonight and it wasn't bad. Akio v London was good for a short match. But I don't know how this can help the ratings. Aren't most of their demographic usually doing things on Saturday Night?

WWE never has good Saturday night ratings no matter whats on. They dont give you much of a reason to watch either. I mean, if Orlando Jordan is in your main event, its not looking too good. For some reason Heat seems to be a much better B level show. I wish WWE did more Saturday Night's Main Events. I miss those, although I guess it would be pretty pointless.

Aww, no Orlando love? I think he's doing well in his new role. He's not so bad.

Why do they call it moving to a "special new Time 11PM". 11 o'clock at night doesn't seem like an upgrade in time... It's kind of like saying I moved out of my apartment to a special new bus shelter.
I haven't watched one episode since it went to 7pm (even though I do catch Heat a day later on the same time). When it was at 10PM I used to watch it sometimes. But usually is because I was a big fan of Confidential and would be around either to leave the VCR running to tape both shows or be around home. But I wouldn't make any effort at all to catch Velocity on it's own... Maybe I'll watch regularly if they still had Josh and Tazz announcing full time, those guys together were a lot of fun.
Speaking of B-shows, yesterday on Heat there was a great main event tag match with Hurricane/Rosey vs. Tajiri/ Rhyno. Real good work and great storytelling with speedsters and power guys getting paired up and the announcers bringing up if they can mix match it could be the difference maker and at the same time the story was being played out in the ring... Real good match I thought.
