Re: SmackDown TV Ratings Thread: THE A-SHOW ON FOX

I'm gonna say the first show will be under 3 million, then slowly drop every week when people realize that this is still the same old WWE with Vince still calling the shots.
Natecore and LongPig666 like this.

Re: SmackDown TV Ratings Thread: THE A-SHOW ON FOX

They've done a great job promoting this (i've seen the same damn Smackdown promo's all weekend and during college football games) but I don't think they get 3.5 mill like some are predicting.

Thatís total viewership, not ratings. All thing considered dynamite came quite close to the first Raw of the season, (0.89 vs. 0.68)

You can't compare ratings like for like when they are on different days of the week. That's why total viewers is used.

A lot more people are watching TV on a Monday Night due to NFL Monster figures. So Raw overall Rating will always be lower than same viewers on a Wednesday.

Anyway i'm predicting around 4.5m. This is stacked as fuck. But we're gonna see a massive drop next week

Marketing companies care about ratings.

Re: SmackDown TV Ratings Thread: THE A-SHOW ON FOX

Fox at 8pm Friday last year had a comedy block led by Last Man Standing, on October 6th it pulled 6 million viewers with a 1.3/7 in the target 18-49 demo so they have an established key demo audience for Friday night viewing. Fox has used every form of cross-promotion possible to make their viewers aware of the Smackdown Live launch so exposure to their viewers is also not an issue.

Fox will be aiming for an ambitious average of ~5 million for the first 30 mins and holding as much of the audience as possible over the 2 hours. Anything over 4 million will be a success, anything under 3.5 million would be seen as a failure. The demos will also be very interesting, Fox didn't pay a fortune for Smackdown to dominate the 50+ audience - it must hit the key demos or it will also be a failure.

I think they'll hit somewhere around the 4 million average over 2 hours tonight, demos probably won't be quite where they want them though.
