Not saying that the WWE is about to die though, I just wanted to put things into perspective.
WCW even on its last legs had a much bigger overall TV audience than WWE now. In the last few months and in general, they were always doing the 3.5/3.9 quarters in the first hour and then the 2.5/3.0- against RAW(only 00). The downfall below 3.0 only started in late 99 and even then they had plenty of weeks above it. They had a RAW one time in 11pm because of Tennis, Nitro that night drew a 4.0+. That was the same night of the War Games on TV IIRC, which was a big success. Point is, Nitro with no competition at its peak on their neck, would have done at least a 4.0+ every week.
