Why do you think that is? It's because the product sucks so much these days that some of us actually enjoy discussing ratings more than the actual show. And I'm not joking, I'm being dead serious. In fact I'm willing to bet that most of the people who enjoy the ratings threads are the ones who absolutely hate the current product. The ratings are the only thing we can relate to because it backs up our view that the product is terrible.

For the people who do somehow enjoy the current product, of course you don't care about ratings, why would you? I'm sure if I was a smark during the attitude era I wouldn't have cared about ratings either, because I would of been enjoying the show too much, i'd rather discuss storylines and my favourite wrestlers, and thats exactly what I did back then. So you see, this trend of people talking about ratings isn't a case of them caring more about ratings, its more a case of them NOT caring about the show.

So you use the fact that 4 million people watch Raw every week to back up your opinion that the show sucks? Seems kind of counter productive to me.

That's like me saying I am not going to watch a match between Lance Storm vs Rock because I don't like Lance Storm. Are you saying that Ziggles is the reason those viewers came back?

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

Seriously close and ban ratings threads. These threads gets filled with spam and just pure smart assery based on dirt sheet reports. How about only allow them when there is a major difference in the ratings. For example RAW has been averaging 2.9 - 3.1 for the past few months. Then when ratings increase significantly like between 3.4 - 4.0 or drop to 2.3 - 2.5 then allow only one thread. Wrestling fans should enjoy the product for what it is and only let WWE officials worry about ratings. It is pointless arguing over ratings that stay consistent IMO.

The number is getting lower and lower, thats what supports my opinion.

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

"Jericho segment lost viewers.
No more than usual they would lose at that segment.
About 80k viewers down.

First quarter with Cena was the highest rated quarter. Never good when the highest rated quarter is the first one.

Punk/Ziggler match did not do what it should have done, it gained viewers, but it should gain 500k, they gained close to 200k.

Punk does not move the ratings."

This is mainly the WWEs fault - the match was built up as the main event before and during the first half of the show, until the break before the match when it said up next - many people probably expected this match to close the show.

Not Removing Until (updated):

[ ] Wade Barrett becomes World Champion
[x] The Royal Rumble winner main events Wrestlemania

[X] Someone new wins WWE title
[ ] The obsession with singlets ends
[ ] Punk has a proper feud with Miz
[?] Brodus Clay becomes a monster
[ ] They get rid of MITB (or at least reduce it to just at WM)

No it wasnt built as the main event. Laurinaitis announced The 6 man tag match half way through the show.
