Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread [Post All TV Ratings Discussions Here]
Generally you can't make a direct one-to-one relationship between the quality of a single show and its TV rating because the TV rating contains a strong random component. That's why you've got to look at the trend over time and correct for seasonality (for example Wrestlemania season will have higher ratings by default). Once I finish my degree I'll make a proper econometric model for RAW ratings and post it on these forums so a better assessment of the ratings evolution can be made.
