Well, the Monster Mash as they're billing it, is more because Halloween is the day after ECW airs.

I certainly can't think of anything more frightening than this match. Can anyone?

Not surprising to see ECW get picked up. Its ratings are low in our view, but they're high for the Sci-Fi Channel.

What were the odds that

1) Mark Henry would pop up on ECW; and

2) the Chocolate Mousse would be performed by someone else ...

3) In another match?

Elijah Burke needs to be on RAW nowish.

They're high compared to the reruned movies and old tv shows, but it's not so much compared to other original programming Sci Fi is paying significant money for.

There's also the usual discount for advertising to wrestling fans, as our unsophisticated nature means we don't buy shiny electronics or vehicles.

HARDCORE HALLELUJAH! 52 more weeks of The Miz, and we also might get bonus weeks where he also shows up on Smackdown!

If next week's show doesn't open with a remake of the cult hit song "Monster Mash" with re-written lyrics referencing Khali, Henry, Kane and V, I'm going to put my foot through the TV set. In fact, I'll gone one further and say Khali better sing the chorus.

Ladies and gentlemen, the following public service message is brought to you by your friends from D-Generation X, who would like to remind each and every one of you that if you're not down with that, we've got two words for you...

Still, the ratings are comparable to Sci-Fi's expensive original programming, and at a much lower cost for Sci-Fi. That, combined with the fact that Sci-Fi was tops in the timeslot with the key 18-34 male demographic, and it's a wonder why people were so worried that ECW was going to be cancelled. I wasn't worried. (The W) Never was. (The W)

Now, if WWE would stop the "talent exchange" nonsense and actually get ECW a fuller roster, we'd be getting somewhere.

While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.

    SCI FI Channel is a television network where "what if" is what's on.


This quote makes me want to tear the hair out of my arms. The only way ANY show on that channel is "what if" is if they make a show about the alternate realities of other shows. What if Dwight hooked up with Oscar? What if Sylar was...a monkey? What if they killed off Ralph Wiggum? "What if is what's on" is the world's worst tagline ever. EVER. Enjoy ECW.

I found it interesting that Sting and Luger were both in action on this jobber show. That's much more star power than I was expecting.
