  • According to yesterday's edition of Studio Briefing, UPN performed extremely well on Thursday. For the first time in its existence, it scored the highest ratings among all networks in men 18-34, men 18-49 and teens with 'WWF Smackdown!', averaging a 6.0/10. This even beat ABC's coverage of the Stanley Cup.

Present at the event was Marc Alaimo (Gul Dukat), who was inspired by Walsh to become an actor. Thanks go out to Holly Kim Wilson for this!
