SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
Remember the old adage that heels lie?
The Miz, in-character on Raw, bragged about “record ratings” for the cable TV premiere of WWE Studios’s “Santa’s Little Helper” Sunday night on USA Network.
In actuality, the movie starring Miz and Paige only drew 857,000 viewers. The movie did not rank in the top cable TV programs on Sunday.
USA’s movie selection Sunday afternoon at 12:30 p.m. drew a bigger audience with 902,000 viewers.
The one positive is the movie barely topped its lead-in, “Jingle All the Way 2,” which drew 829,000 viewers on Sunday evening.
Overall, there was a lot of family/holiday programming Sunday night on cable TV, with WWE’s version not falling in the category of appointment viewing.
The movie is available on home video through Amazon.
