Re: Shakeup increases Smackdown viewership (OP Updated)
It's quite surprising to see that most of the people posted here are missing the point.
Charlotte drawing that numbers to SD? Owens? Zayn? And arguments over who is drawing and who is not and explaining about the attributes of each wrestlers.
Well, don't you think this ratings is for the actual 'Shake up' episode? I mean, people would be naturally curious to know WHO ALL are joining SD from RAW. The surprise element. That should be the factor that sold the episode. Not the drawing power of any of them are the primary factor here.
Most of the arguments here can be taken up for the next week's ratings, where you already know what roster you are going to watch. Where the drawing power of these wrestlers count.
