**All TV Ratings, Buys, Draw Talk Here**

Previous Thread HERE:

NEW THREAD BITCHES ~!!

It's the ratings thread, that thing that WWE apparently doesn't give a shit about, yeah (right)?

The next chapter in the ongoing saga that is the numbers game. Where numbers and decimal points gets analysed to the tenth degree and the dreaded 'Draw' phrase gets bought up and people get their handbags out and have a 'discussion' over a bunch of numbers.

Even people who don't watch are enamored by dem numbers :side: :evil

IT'S ALL ABOUT DEM NUMBERS!!!!!

Everything is fine though, riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight??? :reigns

THE RATINGS WAR PART VI

Thanks @Brock and @Headliner

So, all hours are above were they were last year, so I guess that's good. But they do have a big angle going right now. Going head to head with 2 back to back NFL games certainly took it's toll, for sure.

The NFL is getting some of their lowest ratings of all time as well, especially for a Patriots opener, so the declining ratings issue isn't exclusive to WWE.

Yeah, I know, pretty crazy. It actually started last year for the NFL. The advantage NFL has is that their ratings are still extremely, extremely high, though. But yeah, it's crazy.

Before this thread really takes off, I'm going to promote the fact that, a year ago, when the ropes became red in August 2016, to August 2017, the ropes have been red for a full consistent year and the average rating went up for August 2017 compared to last year.

Getting rid of those pesky white ropes reinvigorated people to stop flipping channels as much or even...a few more people WATCHED!

I got the last post in the last thread so I win. :cool:

Anyway, good that numbers are higher than last year. Numbers are still declining though but maybe they won't get as low as last year after all. We'll see what happens when they don't have two big programs going on.

Nielsen had to delay its release of the television ratings for Week 1 of the new NFL season due to Hurricane Irma. Now the Week 1 ratings are out—and they aren’t good.

Sunday Night Football between the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants was the only slot in which viewership rose compared to last year; every other slot was down double digits.

Overall, Week 1 ratings, excluding Monday Night Football, fell 13% from a year ago. (MNF ratings are still delayed, though initial reports expect them to be down vs last year.)

The Thursday Night season opener, between the New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs, rated a 14.6, which is 11.5% down from 2016, and 17.5% down from 2015. This marks four years in a row that the season opener has seen a ratings decline vs the year before.

Sunday’s afternoon games did the worst: regional games on CBS fell 17%, regional games on Fox fell 28%, and the Sunday afternoon national game on Fox fell 17%.

The Cowboys/Giants Sunday Night game did a 8.0 rating in the adults 18-49 demo and 21.65 million viewers. In the demo, that's a six percent rise from the 2016 Sunday Night Football opener (7.5 adults). That's also up in the demo, but a tiny drop in total viewers, from Thursday's official Sunday Night Football premiere, which drew a 7.7 rating and 21.79 million.

Sorry for the delay guys. I did post this in the previous ratings thread 3 hours ago and that post still appears in my account's post history, but looks like the thread was closed right around the time I posted that and my post vanished. It took me a while to figure out what happened and to find this thread.

As Johnny Ace once said, I had to get it, if I don't get it, I had to figure it out. fpalm

^ There are just as many -- if not more -- individuals not watching the NFL because of the perception of Kaepernick being black balled. The NFL is taking hits from all angles. They'll eventually need to draw a line in the sand but the more time goes by and the more vile drivel I read online, the more I become convinced that contrary to how I felt initially, those kneeling in peaceful protest aren't the snowflakes whom need to be taking a look in the mirror.

The numbers they do are still ginmormous and on another level from anything WWE, or anything else on TV does. Also, the Sunday Night opener this year did better than last year's Sunday night opener, so it's not a straight line down.

The NFL on-field product is decreasing every season in recent seasons. The rules, the inconsistent reffing, the lack of being able to hit someone like they used to and the endless commercials, along with the over-saturation with the Thursday night games aren't doing them any favors.

Remember though that a ton of people were watching the news and they made a killing last year. The election coverage was on most of the time.

This time last year was still 3 months away from the election. I get it, though. Even if you take out last year's comparison, I think these numbers are still better than anyone thought they would be. Shitty, of course, compared to any other era, but considering the competition of 2 NFL games back to back, still better than everyone thought.

LOL...those that care about Colin Kaepernick kneeling are a bunch of far leftists that don't even watch sports. I highly doubt they are boycotting watching the NFL when they aren't football fans to begin with. The protestors (BLM and Antifa) are a very small group representing a small group.

ESPN's a dying network anyway. They went far left and lost their base (which most sports fans at least football are conservative or middle of the road). Put those football games on another network, and they'd get better ratings.
