I say they bring back his Johnny Polo persona, complete with ugly shirts and Polo Mallet (or stick, or whatever they call it)
Kind of surprising the Heat ratings came in and it dropped 0.2. I thought Lita was going to bring in non-viewers but it didn't. I guess people don't tune in just to see their favourites commentate (maybe except if your Rock or Austin)

After watching most of Heat tonight, I'll say this:
Lita's actually getting better.
She's by no means the best commentator in the WWE, but she was much better than last week, and seemed 100x more confident tonight than she did last week.
Still, she needs some work, and she's still probably not the best person for the job at this point.
(Best out of context line(s) of the night so far:
Raven: Cheap three dollar whores...
Since everyone else is doing it (ok, not EVERYONE, but...)
Vikings (0-4) - Bye weeks are boring (round 2) Badgers (5-1) - Congrats to Penn State. Time to rethink our defense. Twins (1-1) - The team looked like hell. Hopefully we can steal one in Cali. Buffy 7.3 earns a 8.04 Out of 10 for being the funny, but throwing out enough plot contrivances to last us the whole damn season. Anya however = Hillarious.

He's going to play secret video that proves he's been held back for refusing to cut his hair.
I am curious about what will actually happen, though. It would be nice to see Raven feud with HHH. That's a PPV I'd even buy. They could even easily work around Raven's ban from Raw. Just have him piss off HHH at a PPV and HHH finagles Raven's return to RAW so as to avoid lowering himself to appearing on Heat.
Whenever I hear Lita speak, I'm reminded the promo between her and Chyna. It was something to the extent of: "Um, Chyna, you're like, cool and stuff, and, um, it'd be like, and honor to, you know, challenge you for the Women's Championship." "Lita, your butt's going to be so sore after I spank it!"
BTW, wasn't Credible's last win on Heat (ever maybe?) his debut match against Grandmaster Sexay over a year and a half ago?

TRIVIA: What was the last match Credible won on Heat?
Not counting a short Hardcore title reign, Justin's last singles victory came on September 22, 2001, (in the main event, no less) when he pinned Crash with a cross-body rollover. Of course, that wasn't Heat, that was Jakked/Metal.
So we must go back farther. He beat Scotty 2 Hotty on August 4 (a Saturday), and before that he beat K-Kwik on July 21 (a Saturday). So his last win on Heat was July 1, 2001, when he pinned K-Kwik after a Superkick. Is that his finisher?
In terms of storyline at that time, that night on Heat Bradshaw & Faarooq (the WWF tag team champs) were beaten up in a run-in (during an interview) by the the WCW Tag Team champions, Sean O'Haire and Chuck Palumbo. One week later, Justin would find himself in the ring beside his fellow ECW friends as they announced the ECW/WCW alliance.
Jericho as champ was a classic example of "booked to fail". Even though he was the first champ, he was NEVER the focus of any shows. He usually fought Mark Henry or Maven while the REAL main-eventers busied themselves in other storylines.
