How many fans do you have saying shit like YAS queen/slay king etc. to UFC fighters?

WWE is tailored to the pussies and has become a joke to the demo that matters in terms of mainstream and popularity.

Quick question why do u guys use past ratings to judge current ratings? Since we all agree that cable tv today is not the same as it was 5 or 10 years ago due to live streams, Hulu, etc why can’t we use current tv shows as a metric. While I understand that ratings are not what it was, the fact that raw and smackdown live are the top rated shows on tv tells me that they are doing just fine in today’s ratings climate.

Nobody does what you are saying. The comparisons most talked about in this thread are YoY. Of which WWEís drop is much more drastic than the average drop for cable.

Exactly. All the other shows have gone down too. There's a hundred shows/sports/etc on cable competing against them in the same timeslot. And that's just cable, now add in major TV networks. Now add in Netflix, Hulu, etc... the fact that the majority of people dvr RAW/SD. WWE digital viewership went up over 20% this year. All contribute to the ratings taking a hit.

If NBCU and Fox were thrilled with where things are at, and where they are headed Iíd say you have an argument. However, the drop since last year is so severe and WWE is getting so much heat that there is no debate that whatís happening to their viewership is a huge concern. If there was no pressure on WWE Heyman and Bischoff wouldnít be getting pulled in. If the fall rate continues as it is they wonít be getting any tv contracts next time around. Thatís why itís a hot topic.

I understand what you are saying. But as far as FOX being thrilled or not thrilled we don't know. This is all rumor. The only facts we know is FOX is going to be pushing/promoing WWE hard when it gets closer to October. Plus they will be ads for WWE on all their major network shows, all their sporting events, etc... Including Thursday Night NFL Football and NASCAR. Another point to bring up, WWE will be getting new advertisers that they probably never got before on USA. So FOX is all in, is what I'm getting at. Being in 30+ million more homes and on a major network instead of a cable channel (not to mention it can be watched by simple antenna for those without cable) can only help

I think we do know the networks are unhappy. There have been too many panic moves lately. The wild card rule, the reduction of emphasis on the women, Undertaker being back, Heyman, Bischoff, no wrestling during commercials, the 24/7 title, giving Brock the briefcase, Iím sure Iím missing others. Fox is still going to give it a try obviously, but thereís no way they donít get canceled if the ratings donít improve drastically. Itís just common sense. Sure they will be in more homes, but do the type of people that donít have cable care about wrestling? That will be the question.

Those are great numbers, most of the top shows on cable do 500k-1m viewers

The reason why I am asking is because what is the metrics used for good ratings today. Letís take music for example, back in 2000 if you sold 1m records u were seen as successful. In todayís digital age no one sells 1m records but there are a lot of successful artists out there.
I just think we have to take into account the damage digital media and social media has done to cable tv.
In 1998 when stone cold came on my tv it was must see tv and u wouldnít dare miss it because I wasnít sure if it would come on again. In todayís time if stone cold came on my tv and I was busy, I would simply skip raw and watch it 24 hours later on Hulu.
Also the rock is the goat but his show the titans only did 1.8 in ratings.

Smackdown live is no 1.
Until I see raw and smackdown fall out of the top 10 I wonít worry. The big worry for wwe is the low attendance record at venues in my opinion.
