Ox Notes: July 23, 2007

Reality TV World figured out how many Emmy nominations went to reality shows, and Dancing with the Stars leads all other reality shows with eight nominations.

In other happy DwtS news, Laila Ali married Curtis Conway over the weekend.

In case you’ve been suffering from Bruno Tonioli withdrawal, he gave an interview about his new show, Dance X.

And it looks as if the scandals surrounding Chris Benoit’s murder-suicide and renewed concerns about steroids in pro wrestling have taken their tolls on WWE TV viewership. Two shows Benoit regularly appeared on — WWE Raw and Extreme Championship Wrestling — have each lost at least 9% of their total audience in recent weeks, with declines of up to 28% in their key demographic of men aged 18-34.
