Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
The lot of you are FUCKING IDIOTS.
Drop by .1 = WWE is coming to an end, Punk can't draw, 2.0s by summer, etc.
No, not really, no. Ratings fluctuate like this all the time. You can't begin to draw conclusions unless there is a continuous, downward trend. There will always be 4 mil viewers who will always watch the show unless WWE does something to seriously alienate it's viewers. It's not Punk, Lesnar, Cena, or anything, it's the product as a whole that's gotten GENERALLY lower ratings, but they aren't quite in the disaster area some of you think they are. The more stuff there is on TV, the more ratings percentages will go down across the board naturally anyway, which is why RAW can't get 6s or 7s anymore.
I won't pretend the WWE doesn't have it's own problems, but it pisses me off whenever you people sit here and try to make conclusions about ratings draws over the change of .1. Now, if the ratings continue to downslide...
