Default With the Raw rating being the worst in 15 years...

Quote:
Monday's RAW broadcast drew a 2.48 (2.5) 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.
Now of course, they had some competition but this has been a pattern for a while now. I find it interesting that these low ratings are being compared to ratings in 1997. Although I think that the AE was just a perfect example of being at the right place at the right time (with the right people), does this mean that they may be able to turn it around again? Surely they have to realize that some things have to change with ratings this bad and I don't want this to turn solely into a "get rid of WWE PG" threat, but I do think that being able to swear or bleed at important moments and important feuds adds to the moment, because it makes a rivalry look real. No one believes there's real animosity between two wrestlers if one calls the other "poopy".

So basically the question is: Can the WWE turn this around (and what has to be done) or does a show like Monday Night Raw not fit in this time anymore as a show that gets 4.xx ratings. And should they hold on to the younger viewers or try to shift to a more adult demographic once again and hope that the children of 2000-2012 grow along with the product. Of course, most people on this forum would want an edgier Raw, but the question is if it would be succesful since all the forum members still don't add up to better ratings.

Monday's show was a complete mess and for that reason it deserves a low rating. If you are a casual fan then why would you sit through 3 hours being confused as hell and not knowing anything that is going to happen in the next hour as nothing gets announced these days.

Children are simply not a big enough market to make it a viable business. Yet they continue to dumb down and pacify the product to fit the PG-audience. There has simply been no revolution in wrestling for ~a decade and real fans are getting more tired with every complacent RAW.

Heck, it took me 40 minutes to get through monday's RAW and even that I found a chore..

You really don't have charasmatic guys anymore. I can't watch raw as I work and that comes first and I dont bother to DVR it. There are things in life that come before wrestling. I doubt I will watch it again and only play the games

They had to know that going to 3 hours was going to kill ratings. It's a weekly miracle that I watch the whole show (minus the B.A. Star bullshit; not even a miracle could make me watch that).

But I'm sure AD REVENUE has never been higher! And I guess that's what's important - not ratings - when you're a 66-year-old businessman who's done everything that can ever be done in the world of pro wrestling.

I don't want to watch CM Punk. He doesn't look like a wrestler. His promos are annoying as fuck - and I don't mean good heat. Beyond that its not just a kids show now, its a show for dumb kids who need special attention in class.

WTFWWE is being a bitch
Default RAW in 2006 should have been the next "Wrestling Boom" wtf happened?

http://www.gerweck.net/tv-ratings/2006-ratings/


2006 at one point had 4.0+ ratings for 11 weeks. The last time this happened was in 2002! RAW's average rating for the year was the best since 2003 and 2006 managed to pull the averages from 3.6/3.7 everything was pointing to WWE 2006 being the next boom but what the fuck happened? 2007 BOMBED bad and then it was downhill since.

What do you think happened? What would you have done to make 2007 even better in the ratings?


Note: Ratings were getting bad before the Benoit incident so don't mention it.

Default Re: With the Raw rating being the worst in 15 years...

Some remarkable similarities with the end of WCW;

1) Not promoting PPV's, even in the run-in show
2) Going to three hours
3) Bringing in celebs for quick-fixes
4) Bringing in has-beens for quick fixes
5) Killing momentum of guys who are clearly over - Daniel Bryan was the most over behind Rock at WM. Fail.
