This is actually getting troublesome. It feels like the bottom ratings get lower and lower every year,

We are at a point where below 3.0 is becoming the norm.

EDIT: And no, I do not blame the champion, whether it be CM Punk, John Cena, or Brodus Clay. The champion isn't responsible for shitty writing and an evil boss storyline that is beating a near 15 year old horse to death.

I don't know how anyone can watch that main event last night and defend this product. If you are older than 10 and enjoyed that I feel for you.

This company does nothing but insult the fans week after week and yet some of the fans will defend this garbage to the death. It's horrible, it's not entertaining, the main eveners are not entertaining, there is no consistency.

It's good the ratings are awful, it will be the ONLY thing that sparks some change from this company.

The fact that the ratings have been awful is the reason that we got BBQ Sauce'd Cole Mainevent. That's how you fix the ratings.

You know? Michael Cole, the commentator who has significantly toned it down over the past few months, has been calling the matches, trying to put over the talent such as putting over Daniel Bryan a submission wrestler, has been 100% less insufferable and less of a bully than Jerry Lawler.

That is not how you fix ratings it's how you make your product look even more childish, ridiculous, and stupid than it already has for the last few years with a few short exceptions like around mania time each year when WWE actually tries.

Another terrible rating for a terrible product. It seems that the base for Raw's rating is getting lower and lower and soon when raw is getting a 3.0 or slightly above rating the wwe officials will be celebrating. I wonder if this time next year , after brock and rock are out of the picture for good , the base for raw's rating will be 2.5

The wwe must change its whole philosophy fast , everything (buyrates, ratings, attendances) is going to the toilet quick . Focus on edgy storylines and improve the freakin writng, make some meaningful feuds for the mid card, allow the wrestlers more freedom on the mic , JUST ACT FOR FUCK'S SAKE the wwe reminds me the titanic and i don't want to see the company destroyed.

-- Vince McMahon's return to television on next Monday's RAW SuperShow is being done in response to the program's disappointing ratings figures in recent weeks. He will kick off the three-hour show with an evaluation of John Laurinaitis's job performance as General Manager of RAW and SmackDown, which company officials are hopeful will boost first hour viewership.

1. Punk killed the ratings even before the TLC PPV, if you remember around that time, there were 4 RAW shows BELOW 3.0 for the first time in 15 years, so that's one thing.

2. HBK drew big until the nWo angle. Ironically I talked about it yesterday:

It doesn't matter that Nitro wasn't on that night of the RECORD 4.7, because RAW did a 4.1 against Nitro after a few weeks. And RAW with HBK as champion beat Nitro every week until the week before the nWo started. You see that here:

Nitro beat RAW in March:
3.2-2.9
3.6-2.9
3.1-2.8
HBK won the belt at WM and RAW beat Nitro every week from there including record numbers overall and head to head:
2.9-2.8
4.7 - biggest of all time at this point, overall.
3.1-2.8
3.3-2.7
2.9-2.1
4.1-1.9 - biggest of all time at that time, head to head.
3.5-2.3
So you need to go back all the way to 95.

This is just ridiculous, why the hell Vince is opening the show when it's going to do a 2.5 at best anyway? this has nothing to do with the person. A huge TV draw like Vince can draw big on the main event segment, I hope it's a teaser just to attract viewers in the first hour and he's going to be in the main event, they tried to do it with the contract signing in April and they failed, so there's no reason to try again.

Quite frankly, the low ratings are merited for the amount of quality they put into their shows.
