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

I never said they aren't worried about them my point was they aren't freaking out about them like it was 1996 because this is the age of the internet. Big difference between caring and freaking out living and dying by the ratings. If they still worried about the ratings to the extent they did back in the day then they would not try and adapt to the internet age the way they have.

Think people on here freak out more about the ratings than WWE themselves do. They seem more concerned with their social media score and shit than ratings nowadays.
Then what about well after the boom was over in the 2000s and streams & technology were really coming into play? They were still getting 3s at WORST when they were competing with MNF, new fall shows, etc. Part of this time was when they were on Spike which from what I heard wasn't available to everybody in the country like USA is today, as well as SC and Rock both MIA. The NFL and other shows have access to what they can watch online as well. It's not an excuse.

Maybe when the product doesn't improve by the late fall and ratings are barely above 2.0(I know it's not too likely but still) maybe they will care.

Disaster number. That was even below the holiday number viewership earlier this year. The product is stale and bland, people aren't going to watch "one of 52" instead of a special alternative they have elsewhere, it didn't help that Punk was all over the program when it was proven time after time that the TV audience aren't invested in him no matter what he does. I get their new trick of putting him with big stars like Bret/Foley/Cena who will keep the general audience but it's a short term solution and it's time to refresh the product.

Every casual fan I have spoken to doesn't seem too endeavored with the move to 3 hours. Usual complaints of too many commercials and pointless filler. It was like that before, just less noticeable.

Now they (WWE) have have competition in MNF, Dancing with the Stars, The Voice, Castle, Hawaii Five-0, Bones and 2 Broken Girls.
