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

how am i defending it, i fell asleep last night watching it

literally, fell asleep in my chair and woke up with aj crying or whatever. then vickie came out and i turned off the Tv and decided to finish re-reading the count of monte christo. its a very fine book. love it

my problem is with you chucky. your mentality. im not saying ryback will be bigger than austin, because he wont. im commenting that its unfair to hold him to his previous gimmick. my all time favourite wrestler, used to be 'mean mark callous'. but he showed everyone later how great he was

second, hypothetically if i liked the product. well then, fuck you. thats my choice. if everyone in the whole fucking universe, multiverse, across all time and space said something sucked, but i thought it didnt. then it wouldnt make a difference. fuck what everyone else likes, im not gonna like something for them, im gonna fucking like it because i like it.

and the ratings have often very little to do with the product a lot of times. ECW did shit ratings but some of the stuff they did down there with mick foley, Eddie Guerrero, RVD and Jerry lynn, cactus jack and such was amazing. why the fuck would i care about ratings if I enjoy the show? the only instance in HISTORY i gave a flying fuck about ratings is for my favourite TV show community. Because it is a work of art and it would kill me to see it cancelled. But even then i dont monitor the ratings on a day to day basis

seriously chuck. get over it

now if you excuse me, im in the mood for some curly fries

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

PG has backfired so bad. I bet Vince was all like "YES! Now that the product is aimed at kids, we'll get fucking huge ratings!"

HA.HA.HA.

Fuck WWE and their shitty programming.

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

And why are people saying its not PG that is causing these ratings, this is WRESTLING. Wrestling is fighting its not a friendly kids show. Times have changed this isnt the 80s and early 90s when that worked. The world has changed and the world of TV is changing to more edgy material.
You see stuff like UFC where the buildup and the fighting is real and people love to watch it, its not dedicated to 3rd graders. Most of the audience is dead during the show because half the audience is parents!

UMAGA IS ON SMACKDOWN!

Monday's Raw broadcast drew a 2.48 cable rating, the program's worst rating for a non-holiday episode since October 27, 1997 (which drew a 2.3). This is below the rating for the Oct. 1, 2012 show, which garnered a 2.54 in comparison.
As reported earlier, the three-hour program averaged 3.55 million viewers, beating a year-low of 3.50 million viewers on Oct. 1. Raw drew 3.58 million viewers in the first hour, 3.65 million in the second hour, and 3.43 million in third and final hour.

Viewership for the third hour was a year-low, below 3.47 million viewers on Oct. 1. It was the tenth consecutive week where third hour viewership was below viewership in the second hour.

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

they fucking deserve that rating, I'm not a stuck-in-the-past hater, but if you're gonna shove Vickie Guerrero down my throat for the 1000000th time after finally getting rid of the train-wreck that is Aj, then sorry, i'm not on your team

and as if there isn't enough imaginary head positions, they add one more , so basically now you have a chairman, a COO, a CEO, the GM, the Interim GM, the Smackdown consultant, the commissioner, and now the head supervisor

oh wait there's more, now we got yet another love soap opera storyline with Cena and Aj, because the Eve/Cena/Ryder was a total blast


hmmm .. a face wrestler meets a helpless diva that's counting on him, oh gee, I wonder how would that turn out, I mean it's not like she'll double cross him and turn heel in the process, because they NEVER did that before right ?


i hope their ratings plummet until they get their heads out of their asses, I still can't get over the fact that the tub of lard Vickie is given yet another big role , until then to hell with them and their boring long-ass 3 hours

Exactly! People who try to refrain from blaming PG are just deluding themselves. Look at shows like Jersey Shore, absolutely fucking abysmal in quality, but it draws, because it's not fucking PG.

PG is to blame.

as for linda's campaign thats another story. thats not wwe losing money as much as it is vince blowing it. like on a yacht. a very crappy, pointless fictional yacht

the only real figures that indicate the company's health are the yearly profits and losses. the very simple, very basic bottom line. unless those start going down the toilet, the wwe is fine. if they go down the toilet, vince still has a long way to go before ending up in 1996 levels
Ratings reflect that though. Most of their money comes from ad revenue. If you ratings continue to fall and less people invest into your company the ad revenue will go down. I think over the past few years the only thing saving them from making less money than the previous years is Wrestlemania and the 10 million dollars they get from SyFy for Smackdown.

Also this year will be interesting because they added two new shows which means they have to spend more money. We will see if the ad revenue is enough to justify these new shows.

WWE's got 99 problems, being PG isn't one of them

back in 1997 and 1998, during the peak of the attitude era and their most controversial period with the media, the first hour of RAW was PG and it was called "Monday Night RAW" , the second hour was TV-MA and it was called "The Warzone" , both together were called "RAW is WAR"

the reason the product is this shitty and bland is because they are too pussy to make an enjoyable wrestling show for everyone, the fact is they are too busy with looking good in the media and the mainstream, they forget to improve the quality of the show

Vince is the media's bitch, here's an example, now I understand and applaud supporting the fight against breast cancer, but can I just ask, what difference would it make to change the colors of the sets to pink, would cancer magically disappear by having John Cena wear pink? would people be cured just because the rope is pink ?

my issue isn't with the pink ropes or the sets, it's the fact that Vince would bend over just to look noble in the public's eye, and the sad thing is he's trying too hard , not just the breast cancer, but with the whole package, GLAAD, the B A STAR , etc.. I mean a show about people punching each other for 3 hours is gonna protest against bullying ? come on now


Vince is too scared to pull something edgy because he's afraid it would give him bad buzz, when the fact that that's not true, you could be edgy AND get some positive buzz, look at last year's WWE with CM Punk after the infamous shoot promo, it got a lot of people talking and pay attention to the show and it was cutting edge


you could be edgy without having a guy rape a dead corpse at a funeral home or bleeding for no reason whatsoever other than the fuck of it, as a fan I don't need pointless blood, just give me shit like CM Punk's rise last year for example , that's all i'm asking , is it too much ?
