Ratings are what they are. Not bad nor anything amazing.

I would be more worried about Rampages ratings get more worse.

Still expect a bigger increase next year for the rights deal if they keep dynamites ratings closer to 900k.

Soooo... the main event with the Elite loses viewers as it goes on. Aaaaand FTR/Acclaimed manages to gain viewers. Hmmmmmmmmm.

RIP FTR’s last remaining TV time when the Bucks see that.

What is going to get them to average 950-1million though? If what is happening now, cant?

Edit: Maybe Sasha will bump the show to a million on her debut if done right, but how long will that sustain?
When did Punk have them averaging a million?

In 2021, AEW had 7 shows over a million viewers prior to Punk’s arrival, despite 2 months of the show’s time and channel being dicked with due to NBA playoffs. In 2022, they had only 7 shows over a million viewers prior to Kenny’s return.

Punk is not some needle mover.

Do you understand how they record these ratings? There is an admitted 10% margin of error from Nielsen themselves. Gains and losses of a few thousand don’t really mean anything.

Holy shit, 4 weeks straight and not even 900 thousand. All due to failure of booking, certain people on the shows that nobody wants to see, Bucks are not moving the needle, if anything drawing it back...and Punk was a draw. Not looking good. U read also in person shows are struggling with attendance.
they have enough talent to do a million consistently. But guys no one wants to see gets tv time (best friends, dark order, Yuta, Garcia) Guys people want to see get little to not tv time (Hobbs, FTR, Starks until recently). Guys that should be doing major angles and segments and matches are used in an uninteresting manner (Daniel Bryan).

Sure, 'nobody' wants to see great workers like Wheeler Yuta + Daniel Garcia when they're recently maintained the viewership in their most recent TV matches, and when they've clearly connected with AEW crowds around the country over the past several months :LOL:

They were part of one of the most watched quarterly matches/segments too for this week.

Edit:

Plus, at no point has Powerhouse Hobbs ever been consistently more over than Wheeler Yuta or Daniel Garcia. His crowd reactions are lukewarm to both those guys in comparison. I don't get why he's this highly regarded.

lol yes, no one wants to see bland, vapid, 5’8 160lb “great workers” like Yuta or Garcia. They are miserably uninteresting. Imagine Hobbs got the attention and tv time and effort that either of these guys got in the past 6 months? You’d have a budding star comparable to Wardlow (ahh, another guy they’ve bungled).

Yuta or Garcia aren’t over. They’ve been attached at the hip to Jericho and the JAS and to Moxley/Bryan and the BCC, respectively, but they are not over. No one cares for either of those guys.

Alright, if Wheeler Yuta and Daniel Garcia are 'miserably uninteresting' (which is obviously false because the AEW crowds are invested in these younger talents), then that doesn't bode well for Powerhouse Hobbs at all here since their crowd reactions dwarf 98% of his crowd responses.

After all, more fans would rather react to those insignificant workrate guys than that powerhouse dude (y)

Oh, of course; it's not like we have 8+ months of evidence where Wheeler Yuta was consistently over to the point where crowds regularly chanted his name (even as recently as his last few tag matches on TV).

I recall a tag contest earlier in October where his name was chanted over more established guys like Chris Jericho and Claudio Castagnoli.

Wheeler Yuta was red hot with crowds from the time where he bled against Jon Moxley back in April up until the point where he first challenged the hottest top guy of the company in MJF earlier this September.

Hell, Yuta was gone for a few weeks from late May through early June (where he missed Double or Nothing due to the NJPW Best of the Super Junior tournament), and yet he was one of the most over men in that Battle Royal where the winner had to face Jon Moxley in that main event.

Daniel Garcia regularly gets "you're a wrestler" chants ever since he teased his betrayal to JAS, and seemingly sided with Bryan Danielson. He's been fairly hot with AEW crowds for months now because of that storyline revolving around his uncertain allegiance to JAS or Bryan.

Yea, claiming that neither Yuta and Garcia are/were never over is a huge lie. You can keep making that misleading argument, but you'd still be wrong (y)

No one cares for either of those guys.
Various wrestling crowds around the country over the last 8+ months who frequently react to both those men, and who cheer for them says otherwise. You don't speak for the rest of the AEW audience who clearly do care about Yuta and Garcia (y)

The thing is it's become a "Boy who cried wolf" type situation when Dynamite ratings don't go up. Because for whatever reason, it's pretty much never chalked up to bad string of shows. It's always

Well this sport, this game show, politics, this holiday, hey TV in general

So when actually technical difficulties arise it's eyeroll worthy. It's not that these things aren't happening, but when everytime there's a reasoning beyond maybe the show isn't attracting new viewers it becomes pathetic.
Yeah I get that. I usually don't even factor in most things anymore, the rating is what it is, unless you get some otherworldly event, like the whole January 6th riot or something.

I only actually brought up this thing because for once it actually is legitimately something that prevented people from watching at all, not because they were choosing to watch some other programming.

But yeah, I get it.
