I didn't watch. I rarely watch Heat, only making a point to tune in if there's a match that looks interesting. Conway/Benjamin last week (match was disappointing, though), Palumbo/Benoit (Chuck's last match in the company) are a couple times I made a point to tune in.
What's funny is that now that Heat and Velocity are on WWE.com, I'll watch them every week. Can't say the same for when they were on TV, but some of that had to do with my work schedule. Besides, when I'm home I wanna relax, and on Saturday and Sunday there are much better things to do than watch Heat and Velocity.
But... I liked this week's editions. Benoit/Regal was very good, as was the tag-team match on Velocity. The Heart Throbs never fail to crack me up... gotta love Romeo landing on his feet, saying "A-ha!" and getting drilled by Rosey half a second later.
Keep putting on good shows like this, WWE, and no doubt Heat and Velocity will be the fourth- and fifth-most-watched wrestling shows on television.

I concur, I love the ability to pick & choose matches...I`m about to watch the Velocity tag match now. I`m sure WWE will keep track of whose matches get the most hits as well...i.e. many more people will be watching Regal/Benoit than Dean/jobber.
edit: I've said it before, but PLEASE WWE...when you finally put the belts back on MNM, have London & Kendrick chase them in a nice, long feud and the state of tag team wrestling will immediately skyrocket (well compared to its current state).

Yep, I knew it. Mac users are hosed. I can play every video on WWE.com...except the Heat and Velocity matches. I had the exact same problem with the first hour of Smackdown a few weeks ago. Some sort of Windows-only digital rights management.
We're a small portion of your audience WWE, but throw us a bone.
Benoit FINALLY gets a great US title match and you can only watch it online . Why can't they give Benoit matches like that on Smackdown and PPV instead of wasting him with Orlando Jordan and a 4 way match (again with Orlando Jordan) on PPV?
I think they should just dump the CW title already since they aren't serious about it or the division at all and just make Nunzio and Vito another tag team for Smackdown. God knows Smackdown needs tag teams since that's just another division that's in the toilet at the moment.
Ahh Tivo the magical device that allows me to actually do these also keeps me two weeks behind: WHAT WORKED: -Opening with about 8 minutes of Jim Cornette on the mic. In the last couple years, Iíve seen him make me an audience care about old man Heenan....
