I'm so glad you asked.

"Once in a Lifetime: The Rock vs. John Cena" PREMIERES tonight at 8PM Eastern on USA, one hour before the RAW SuperShow.

BUT if you MISS it, you can also catch it at these times (Eastern, except where noted) on these channels:

Tue 3/27 7PM Cloo
Tue 3/27 10PM (Pacific) Comcast SportsNet Seattle
Wed 3/28 8PM Universal HD
Wed 3/28 10PM Comcast SportsNet Atlanta
Thu 3/29 12:30AM Universal HD
Thu 3/29 6AM Style (no, REALLY)
Thu 3/29 8PM mun2
Thu 3/29 9PM Comcast SportsNet Boston
Fri 3/30 1AM E!
Fri 3/30 6AM NBC Sports (formerly VERSUS)
Fri 3/30 8AM Syfy
Fri 3/30 11AM Bravo
Fri 3/30 7PM Syfy
Fri 3/30 11PM Universal HD
Fri 3/30 11PM (Central) Comcast SportsNet Chicago
Sat 3/31 9AM USA
Sat 3/31 1PM (Pacific) Comcast SportsNet California
Sat 3/31 6PM mun2
Sat 3/31 10PM G4
Sat 3/31 11PM Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia
Sun 4/1 8AM Oxygen
Sun 4/1 10AM G4
Sun 4/1 12PM Cloo

AND if you somehow manage to avoid it completely on television, there's a good chance it'll show up on YouTube and Hulu as well.

I also wouldn't be surprised if it was on the DVD release of WrestleMania.

I wonder what Cena has to say about his yellow pants.

Ah, thank you. I'm assuming they show reruns of Matlock and The Father Dowling Mysteries.

With a name like Cloo, they have to work in showings of Clue The Movie right? And if they do, I will order that channel.

It's funny, I watch House and Monk and other NBC Universal shows on there (mostly just reruns of USA shows) but I saw one morning they had "'Til Death" airing. All I could think of (and Tweet) is the only mystery involved in that show was how it lasted as long as it did.

If Cloo shows Clue, the asshole who came up with the stupid name of 'Cloo' needs to get fired from their job. That looks ridiculous. ...worse than 'Tru TV'. No wonder our education system is for shit.

Methinks you're shooting your mouth off at the wrong guy. Blame trademark laws, because you can't trademark common words like "clue", "true" or "sci-fi". Those laws, along with lazy marketing types, begat Cloo, TruTV and Syfy.

Hmmmm...

I've heard this before, and there is substantial support for it out there, including reports that the name SyFy came about partly because the previous name, Sci-Fi, couldn't be trademarked--but I'm pretty sure it isn't completely right. For example, quick Googling will show that both Unilever (for soap) and Mars (for chocolates) own trademarks on the word "Dove", which seems to me to be a pretty common word. It looks like Spike is a registered trademark for the cable channel, as well.

I don't know enough about the law to say exactly what the rules are. I'm thinking that something like "Cloo" can get a more universal trademark, meaning that not only can't someone else start a Cloo television channel, but also no one can use it for another product--as opposed to the Dove situation above, where companies can hold different trademarks for the same name in different classes of products, and while you or I couldn't make our own "Dove chocolates" (or probably even, say, Dove hard candies), we could probably get use Dove for some other type of product--Dove computers or Dove shoes, maybe. But the idea that you can't get a trademark at all for a common word seems to be wrong. (I only discovered this after posting the you-can't-trademark-common-words thing to a different forum and was told off by a lawyer.)

I blame texting. It's ridiculous sometimes what passes as conversational English.

When you make a trademark, you tell the patent office what categories of product you plan to sell. The trademarks for WWE go into amazing detail about the kind of things they might consider selling. There is indeed registrations for more than Dove chocolates and soaps. Besides Unilever (and Conopco, which must have been the name of the company before Unilever bought it) and Mars, there are patents in for Dove for the following categories of goods and services:

    SARA LEE FOODS - FRESH AND CURED MEATS AND PACKING HOUSE PRODUCTS-NAMELY, SAUSAGE, LARD, AND SUGAR CURED MEATS, VIZ., PICNIC, BACON, AND HAM


But SciFi is different. In this context, SciFi is probably considered a descriptive mark, that is a word that simply describes the type of product that is for sale. When you use Sci-Fi in conjunction with movies, or books, or tv shows, it's just a word that describes what kind of movies, books, or TV shows you're watching, which isn't enough for a trademark. If you used SciFi for, I don't know, a brand of cheese, well that would be an Arbitrary Mark (like Apple Computers, the word doesn't describe the actual product at all), and you'd be ok.

That's complete nonsense! Somebody MCMG's size can't beat Hernandez combined! They need like 8 MCMGs! It's probably more likely that Hernandez beats MCMG by himself and then he's too worn out to fight off the Band.
