The theory is flawed because not everybody likes the same shit. I personally really liked Raw this past Monday but someone else probably hated it. Cena could be champ and feuding with Big Show and Raw gets a 4.0 rating for example does that mean it's going to = entertaining to me? No, everybody watches for their own reasons and like and dislike different things. Everybody would be Cena fans if we used the if it's successful it must be good logic.
