Brock has never been a draw to put him in the same category as The Rock is a joke.

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

I’m actually not impressed by that number. Broadcast network, huge promotional wave before hand (some of it lies), and the Rock... can’t crack 4 million. I don’t think they drew many new viewers, just lapsed fans tuning in out of curiosity.

And seeing as how they utterly failed with creative, watch the show implode from here on out with no Rock and “debut” hype.

Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace

The Rock is a much bigger draw than Brock, granted.

But Brock generally has a positive influence on viewership. Put Bryan or Rollins against Kingston last night and the viewership would be less.

A Friday night and going up against CBS's new episodes of "must see TV" established line up. That is impressive as hell. If CBS was in re-reuns, and that Dish Network problem wasn't going on. Easily would have pulled in a 4.5.

And about the Rock stuff. Yeah, well Rock wasn't pulling in "new" viewers. That CBS demo dosen't even know who the Rock is. They ain't standing in line to see his movies. You're trying to beat CBS and ABC on Friday nights.. This is the goal. Rock isn't' gonna wow anybody(it was a nostalgia thing last night), and he's a one off anyway. ... Buddy Murphy is gonna wow somebody. Showcase guys like him.

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

Very good number for a friday night. They won't have The Rock again for a while though, so we'll see. I saw a lot of comments on twitter like "giving WWE a try tonight won't do it again" so I think they could lose about a million of those viewers. We'll see anyway.

No he doesn't the ratings increased after he left for the NFL with Cena as FOTC and then declined steadily upon his return. Only the alpha geeks of the IWC get pumped for when he's on TV.

Not getting that rock/ all ppv match card bump will make 3 a stretch. Good debut numbers though

Cain's attack on Lesnar is doing massive numbers on youtube.Far higher than anything else that happened on the show including The Rock.

1) Eddie Guerrero drew less than Brock as world champion. As did JBL. Cena was indeed a bigger draw than him.

2) His return actually improved viewership earlier this year. The Rollins vs Styles programme bombed viewership to new lows.

I am not saying that he's a mega-draw. But it helps to have him on the show. He has more value than Bryan, Kingston and Rollins.
