Do people really think that's a bad rating nowadays? \
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"
