And what a crappy way to start a show, having Kevin Kelly, some guy from the 90's who got made fun of by The Rock on a weekly basis for such things as picking his nose introduce a guy from TNA who's last appearance there was being called a small-dicked loser by his girlfriend "Chelsea"
You're right that only ROH fans could have possibly enjoyed this show, and if they don't try and adapt to a modern style they will fail.. I'd like to see the numbers for this week compared to next week, wouldn't be surprised to see half the audience drop off
I really liked the camera work. They angles were different than what WWE and TNA does and vast improvement over what they do for DVDs.
Also I don't think there will be numbers available since they run on different stations at different times. Nielson takes a sample but odds are they only have a handful of people in each station so you would see ROH get 0.0s in a bunch of areas since none of the 10 people with boxes were watching. Then there would be a few areas where they would have absirdly high ratings (like in the 15s) because 1 person out of the 6 in the area that got the show watched. Unless you're on national TV where you basically air everywhere in the country at the same time it's really hard to figure out how many viewers you actually got.

I would have booked Davey in a squash. Yeah he had a match later in the night but this is the first show and the best way to showcase Davey is in the ring.
