- The Rock’s latest film Snitch did $13.17 million dollars over the weekend, which put it at #2 behind Identity Thief’s $14 million. The film actually beat the opening weekends all of the “tough guy” action star-heavy films released so far this year such as Jason Statham’s Parker ($7 million), Sylvester Stallone’s Bullet to the Head ($4.6 million) and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s The Last Stand ($6.3 million).

In an interesting note with the male/female split of attendees, the film had only a 53% male audience, which is much lower than the traditional action film split. This probably helped it out as the above action films with strong male demos this year bombed, suggesting that adult males are not visiting movie theaters much this year so the more female-leaning spread likely pushed the grosses higher than it would have been. 57% of the audience for the film as over thirty.

- Friday’s episode of WWE SmackDown scored a 2.03 (2.0) cable rating, with 2.89 million viewers. Those numbers are up 4% and 8%, respectively, from the 1.96 rating and 2.68 million viewers in the previous week.

The show ranked #2 in overall viewers for the night among cable shows, #6 among males 18 – 34 and #4 among males 18 – 49. The 18 – 34 demo rating was a three-week high.

- Diamond Dallas Page will be hosting a yoga seminar at the Horseshoe Arena in Midland, Texas on March 23rd, 2013 from 10 AM to noon.

- WWE returns to the Ector County Coliseum in Odessa, Texas on May 11th, 2013 at 7:30 PM & the Maverik Center in West Valley City, Utah on May 24th, 2013 at 7:30 PM. Tickets go on sale March 9th, 2013. Click here for information about future events.
