Re: Ratings shock = Cena & Michael Cole in main event?

I don't understand why the WWE was so concerned with the low rating last Monday. It was a major holiday here in the United States. People were out camping, BBQ'ing and the like. They weren't sitting on their assess watching television. On top of that the NBA finals are on. I think they are looking into it too much. I bet the rating will pop back up to its normal level this week--whether you had the ridiculous main event versus a wrestling main event like last week.

You know how pissed I am I finally had to remove my "Think WWE sucks, Where were you in 1995?" sig picture. God damn ratings decline.

If the holiday didn't cause the 2.7 but rather the quality of the programming (or lack thereof) this show ought to be even lower.

It was like weird fetish porn. Very uncomfortable to watch, especially with all that fucking BBQ sauce. Awful.

Holiday or not, they know they were going to do the same rating. Thats the reason for concern.

Theyre not concerned with the ratings anymore than usual. When will people understand that the NBA playoffs are on and that pro wrestling is one of the biggest ratings victims of the Youtube/illegal steam/download/DVR age. If I can watch RAW at a later time at my convenience then I will. If I have something better to do on Monday night or a big time sporting event is on (me being a big sports junkie), then Im not watching RAW live.

Not really. Viewership of WWE Youtube Content is largely from worldwide fans, Outside of US. It doesnt affect much.

DVRs are a different problem.

Re: Ratings shock = Cena & Michael Cole in main event?

This was not for ratings.
This was for cheap face heat for Cena.

They're coasting on the ratings side of things, while they wait to ring back Lesnar and HHH
