DAT 2.0 ERA - If you can't get behind this you'll be left behind...along with everybody else who stopped watching
Panic button indeed. While the 3 hour format certainly isn't helping matters, the fact that viewership for the first 2 hours and in general is that
low is flat out terrible. The third hour has become something of a scapegoat it seems. If it weren't there I imagine things would be marginally better but not by much. If people really wanted to tune in and the only issue they had was the third hour/length of the show we'd see normal numbers for the first 2 hours and then a big drop off towards the end. That isn't happening. Like I said last week, they're starting shit and ending worse. I doubt even Rock can do anything to save the entire show tbh. It's a top to bottom issue with everything flowing from the top of the card down. When the top of the card isn't producing the goods, nobody else stands a chance, hence the complete haemorrhaging of viewership over the past few months. It's crazy to think that 6 million people saw CM Punk lay out the Rock in July and since then just over half of them are still watching. Crazy.
