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.
Couple things NFL now is the most popular it has ever been. It wasn't in the time period you are talking about. That's kind of the same with the internet usage when it comes to wrestling hence why WWE is using the internet a lot more than they did during the time period you're talking about.

But the purpose of my post wasn't even "make excuses for why the ratings are going down" Was simply to point out why the ratings don't mean as much as they did back then. I don't even really give a damn about the ratings and never have as it does zero for my enjoyment or dislike for the product.

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

The ratings should be no surprise. We all called this was going to happen in the summer. As the ratings continued to drop in the summer, with NOTHING competing with it, it was obvious when the fall came and it had to compete with Monday Night Football, and brand new seasons of network television shows, it was going to get annihilated.

Ratings will only go down from here in my opinion.

If I really, really enjoyed a ep of RAW but if it drew a bad number, then I'd not like it anymore.

The-Rock-Says is a good man. I only hope, judging on his avatar/sig that he finds this funny and it helps him.




Thanks Punk

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

I dont understand why the theory "Low rating = Less entertaining product" is simply dismissed as false? I mean dont we attribute the Ratings/PPV buys success of the Attitude era to more entertaining product? more entertaining and larger than life characters?

So we can credit the success of a show in terms of ratings to the quality of the product, but not when it bombs?
