The wrestling audience has went from what, 12+ mils nightly down to 3.5mils? You can't survive on that. You can't lose that many customers and still survive in the current format. There's an end game here.



USA will not cancel Raw because Raw is their #1 show. The 2.0, 2.3, 3.5 numbers don't matter. If Raw is their number #1 draw, then USA is not going to drop them.

I don't believe USA Network will ever "drop" Raw, but it has to be noted they pay a hell of a lot more to air Raw than any other show on their network. We're talking about well over $100 million annually, probably more towards $150 million, and it's a number that is increasing yearly, at the same time when ratings are decreasing. Again, they won't drop them, but there is more to it than just saying "Raw is their highest rated show". Of course it is, there would be a huge problem if it was not.

The problem for them with their decreasing ratings has less of an impact on their current standing with USA Network, and more of an impact on future TV deals.

Our bar pays for a Network sub so we can show the PPVs and NXT events at the bar, but we all also use that sub sign-in for our personal use to. So the bar and like 4 of us are all using one sub.

Daniel Bryan really had the ability to become the next mainstream star. I don't think he would've been the next Rock, but maybe catch up to John Cena.

I'm always happy to see The Miz up there. I know that Rock/Cena were the draws, but he's so underrated in what he does. So, I'll give him some of the credit too.

Re: **All TV Ratings, Buys, Draw Talk Here** - THE RATINGS WAR PART V - LOL Ratings

The chart just goes on to show how the ratings have been gradually falling from as far as 10 years back.. discounting minuscule spikes here and there, yet their TV revenue has only gradually increased all this while. Another reason why not looking at ratings in context is an exercise in futility.
