Re: Are ratings important in 2012?

They are more important than ever due to the decline of PPV. TV rights fees are based on ratings.

Re: Are ratings important in 2012?

Ratings will still be the benchmark for years to come. They really shouldn't matter, as media is evolving, but what else can they use for the time being? It's a brave new world.

Absolutely. Of course, WWE may not necessarily care about ratings as much as they used to (Monday Night Wars for example), but no question, ratings are the sole indicator of how well a TV show is doing in terms of viewership, at least for now.

Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)

Forgot to comment on the breakdown. The opener did really well as expected. It also carried over into the second quarter which only lost 9,000 so I'd say that's a great sign for Trips/Lesnar. The BTC matches didn't seem to have the impact I thought they would since practically all of them lost viewers while random shit with Khali and and Clay gained lol. All this talk going on about 10pm doing so badly is . That segment started with 2 video recaps and then went to commercial. Anybody blaming that on Orton is being retarded. Doesn't matter if they had Rock, Brock, HHH and Cena in there, people tune out during commercials. Stupid conversation. It was silly of them to do the staredown with Punk/Bryan at such a weird time. I'm willing to bet half the people tuning in next week won't even know they're having a match at OTL. But with Brock gone that gives them the chance to get either the opening or closing slot next week I would imagine. The overrun did a nice number too. No, it didn't pull a million viewers but it still did the average numbers. Not fantastic but not shit either. Next week will be telling since Cena/Ace is now obviously the main deal on the show.

Of course they are . The wwe depends on its weekly tv programs , so the bigger the ratings the better .

Re: Are ratings important in 2012?

No because they have so many avenues where money comes in and USA isn't going to just dump Raw when the show pulls the networks biggest numbers. The WWE will always have a TV slot to air their shows, they will always have PPV. It's about making money, not just ratings. Ratings only mattered during the Monday Night Raw. The WWE didn't worry about ratings until Nitro debuted, and they had a 12pm slot on sunday called All American Wrestling, and Prime Time Wrestling that came on Monday's from 9pm to 11pm on the USA network before Monday Night Raw. They've had TV shows for years and ratings were a non factor. WWF Superstars and Wrestling Challenge were on network syndication during the weekend.

I'm for as many people getting over as possible, it would improve the show and the more over people there are, the more avenues there are to push new talent, yes, your favourites are more likely to get pushed if there are more over people to feud with.
