yes, when other shows on television get much higher ratings, it's a bad rating.

WWE is in the "entertainment" business, that means they are competing with everything on television.

WWE will try to say top show on "cable" but there are so many channels which are not considered to be "cable"

and one or two wrestlers will not = ratings... do people who think that, forget the show is 3 hours?

If CM Punk is on the show for 20 minutes, he is only one the show for 13.33 percent of the show 11.11 percent if you count commercials.. don't forget the the other 86 percent of the show is not cm punk..

just because cm punk is or not the champ, does not mean people will watch the entire show. They may just watch that one segment that he is in.

to get good ratings for the show, you need an overal good product. something wwe does not have now.

WWE needs to bring back "crash tv"

At the end of the day, the biggest draw in the WWE is the WWE brand name itself. The rating suck because the company sucks. Nothing to do with anybody on or not on the show. Vince and his Hollywood writing staff are creatively bankrupt. Once the NFL season starts we may be looking at Raw potentially doing less than that 2.3 or whatever it was last year.

and one small segment does not affect the overall rating.. the entire show affects the entire rating.
as soon as it gets boring they change the channel..

why should the person in the main event be blamed for people switching the channel and finding something better when they see fandago dancing?

We live in a world where even The Rock can't bring in these incredibly high standards people have for ratings.
Nobody can blame Punk now, lol

A) Push D-Bryan. He's one of a small few actually getting a reaction at this point.

LOL wut? is this true?

I can't wait to see what numbers Punk puts up when he returns, I wouldn't be shocked if he's the top full time draw they have now.

Looking at it retrospectively just shows how much of a special wrestler he was.

Like I said, there were a lot more variables that contributed to that spike but Austin was the main reason.

Simply amazing...

WashingtonD's graph pretty much sums it up. It doesn't matter who you push ratings are going down until the market for wrestling rises.

It's why you gotta have everyone rolling. It's a shame that guys like Orton, Sheamus, Bryan, Miz, Del Rio, and Swagger are directionless after title pushes. Completely devalues the belt when half the roster is former champ and nobodies championship over.

Really it seems like people are solely chasing Cena's top spot and anything less than that makes you irrelevant. You can't make stars under those conditions.

Default How low do ratings have to go until something big changes? And what to do?

Just read about how this was the lowest ratings for RAW and SD this year, and basically i wish they would continue to sink...but im sure by next week itll be back up to over 3.0 in some manner. But if it were to continue to sink, im sure something would be done but what exactly is a plausible scenario?

If lets say the ratings finally got to that point, what exactly would Vince do? Would he just continue on as normal and figure things would change? Or do you guys feel something might actually be done to better the product if it were to really get down in the ratings?
