I think that's all that needs to be said.

How is any superstar being blamed for bad ratings when Raw is a 2 hour(soon to be 3 hour) show. Where about 90 minutes of the 2 hour show is the actual show and 30 mins are commercials. And the most time a star appears on a single episode might be like 20 minutes. 20/130(10 mins of overrun)= 15%.

So at most, a star can appear on Raw for like 15% of a show, and gets blamed for a bad rating for the other 75% of the show.

The ratings argument is ridiculous, period. It's a cheap, misinformed way of saying "I think 'wrestler X' sucks and can 'prove it'".

Don't get why people even care about ratings. For networks like CBS,NBC,FOX. Ratings matter just to see which network is the bigger network of the night, and over a period of time, ratings determine if a show stays on a certain day/time or even just on the air in general.

For WWE, what do ratings mean to them.....USA doesn't really have any competing network, no competing wrestling company for WWE, and no matter what happens, WWE will always find a network for Raw and Smackdown to air, so it's not like ratings mean a single thing for them.

Ratings were only relevant from 1996-2001.

Punk gets the "rating" jokes because WWE let him main event a few times with his buddy Bryan and at one point, Zack Ryder, and the ratings failed to deliver. That was the nail in the coffin after he was already the center of the "ratings failure" arguments last summer when his mega-push failed to raise much numbers. The flame got hotter a few weeks ago when a match between Punk and Bryan lost viewers.

I don't blame anyone in specific for bad ratings, the show sucks and they deserve what they get.

Default Re: riddle me this...

cos when Punk was actually in the Main Event segments of Raw the rating did poor and WWE shat themselves cos the ratings apparently mean something again like its 1999. So they put Cena in as many segments as they can so they can get what they would call a decent rating and when they do a poor rating their plan is to either use a certain character in nearly all the shows segments so the casual fan might give a damn about the current product.
