Default Re: Is this the worst year in terms of ratings?

People stream, people download the show, people DVR the show, people watch on YT. There are more ways to watch than just watching live right then and now.

Plus there aren't many "Man I need to make sure I watch RAW next week" moments.

Exactly. Meltzer usually puts the DVR numbers in the Observer and it tallys into the hundreds of thousands for an average Raw

Still very minor compared to the grand scale.

Ratings are going to drop every single year, not because the product is less popular but because or because the product is bad, but because of the rise of the internet and more so now the rise of the speed of internet and the rescission.

The people that actually watch the product is a false reading because the actual ratings will be much higher because of people recording it, streaming it and watching it on youtube and other similar sites.

WWE is costing itself a lot of money because of it failure to react to the situation and I would go as far as to day it has almost gone to far to do anything about it.

There is a coincidence that ratings drop every year as internet speeds get faster each year and online content because more and more available and more and more people are becoming savvy online.

If WWE wants to really reclaim some bigger figures they need to lower the prices of the smaller PPVS like Capitol Punishment and Over The Limit etc etc.
And make the product more available worldwide.

WWE is far far far more popular in the UK than TNA is, but TNA gets higher ratings because in the circumstance TNA has made the cleverer move.

Whilst WWE is only available to people with a sky sports package costing over 50 a month and only available to a limited amount of people. TNA is instead available to every household in the UK on a free channel. It shows you the fans are still there but there not willing to pay over 50 and until WWE realises obvious facts like this they are continually shooting them selves in the foot and giving the upper hand to their rival. People instead of paying will choose to watch it for free online which if its is easy and possible to do and picture quality gets higher more and more people are going to do.

Im pretty sure Over The Limit is free in the UK tonight, which is a step in the right direction.

WWE isnt the only company suffering from deflated viewership and its the rise of the internet.

WWE is now less popular than it was in the attitude era and golden age era. Not because of the interenet, but because of wwes abilty to depush stars and not create big enough stars.

If people can't understand the concept of time-shifted viewing there's nothing more to discuss.
TV ratings are pretty much a dead issue in this century.

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

Part of the reason the ratings have been bad was seen tonight... my god what a terribly booked Raw. Who would stick with it when you have 40+ minutes of Cena, the focus of the show on Lauranitis/Cena/Big Show, random segments like Santino/Ricardo, worthless Divas match, Punk/Bryan booked just oddly, and that ridiculously stupid main event. I mean... I kept flipping the entire night because the show was just fucking terrible. I hope the numbers tanked as the night went on.
