Monday Night Wars: Part Two and a Half

Monday, March 8th, 2010

After the success of their January 4th show, TNA and Spike TV have decided to move Impact! to Mondays permanently, starting tonight. In the exact same 9-11 timeslot that WWE’s Raw runs in, no less. This effectively marks the return of the “Monday Night Wars,” or so the TNA side would have you believe. But I’m not sure it will be much of a battle for either side.


TV Thoughts: Leprechauns and Crock Pots

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010

I still watch television, of course. In particular, I have a few things to say about the newest episodes of Raw, Lost, Chuck, and Inuyasha: Final Act. So close to having all one word name shows, but the last one had to go and add a subtitle. Spoilers are hidden.


NXT Thoughts

Sunday, February 28th, 2010

So WWE’s NXT, their newest series, premiered this week. Of course I was going to watch it, but sometimes I have an opinion about things, and sometimes those opinions are made up of multiple words, so… Analysis ahoy.


TV Thoughts: Finales, Premieres, and Evil Gases

Saturday, February 6th, 2010

Quick rambles about the series finale of Dollhouse, the season premiere of Lost, this week’s ECW, and last week’s episodes of Batman: The Brave and the Bold and Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Many spoilers are thrown about, but I’ve hidden them with ugly color codes, as usual.


Royal Rumble Thoughts

Monday, February 1st, 2010

The start of the so-called “Road to WrestleMania” took place last night, so I thought I’d get out my opinions while they’re still relatively fresh (though I’m already forgetting details). Not going to bother with spoiler tags, because I’d have to block out pretty much everything in this case, so I’d advise against reading this now if you don’t want to know the results yet.


TV Thoughts: Christian Kane and Crocodiles

Friday, January 29th, 2010

Some thoughts on last week’s Batman: The Brave and the Bold and this week’s ECW.


TV Thoughts: I Still Hate Don Johnson

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

A few thoughts on the newest episodes of Raw, Dollhouse, and Chuck. Some spoilers, but they’re hidden.


Monday Night Wars… Part No

Tuesday, January 12th, 2010

I wanted to wait a while until the ratings were released and the shows really sank in. Raw ended up with a 3.6, which was identical to the week before. This means they gained as much for Bret Hart as they lost to TNA. Speaking of whom, Impact! did a 1.5, which was its highest rating ever. Just based on those numbers, it’s difficult to say who “won,” because Raw was obviously still much higher, but Impact! was the one who broke records.

But I’d say that neither of them really won anything.


Monday Night Wars… Part Two?

Monday, January 4th, 2010

Today is January 4th. Eleven years ago today, in 1999, was the day that many (including myself) consider the day that WCW put the final nail in their own coffin. Coincidentally, today may have the opposite effect for TNA, or so Hulk Hogan would have you believe. He recently joined the company with the apparent intention of revamping it and turning it into a legitimate “threat” for WWE, starting with a special three hour Impact! going right up against tonight’s Raw. For now, it’s just a one-time thing to test the waters, but if TNA does well, they may permanently move Impact! to Monday nights.
