Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
[QUOTE=TMPRKO;10852201]Well you just pointed out the biggest weakness with the ratings system and why the trolls here are often so wrong. It doesn't account for DVR/Tivo, Youtube, other online sites, or WWE.com itself. That does keep the numbers from being completely accurate.
Those numbers are irrelevant because they don't make WWE money (and if they do, it's a tiny amount). Why is that so difficult for people to comprehend?
And Nielsen does account for DVR. Nielsen has a measure called +7, a reviewed figure for any viewings made during the proceeding 7 days from the air date. Problem is advertisers don't really care about this figure because if you are using your DVR, you're going to skip the ads.
Do people just ignore posts they don't agree with? I've destroyed this whole Nielsen is inaccurate argument a 1000 times, yet I still see it posted.
