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

Previous Thread HERE: http://www.wrestlingforum.com/wwe-raw-smackdown/1749538-all-tv-ratings-buys-draw-talk-here-ratings-war-part-iv.html

So here it is, Thread Ratings War Part V. You know ratings, 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.

:maisie3

So, calm down and have fun. IT'S ALL ABOUT DEM NUMBERS!!!!!

THE RATINGS WAR PART V

:BAM

P.S LOL Ratings.​

Re: **All TV Ratings, Buys, Draw Talk Here** - THE RATINGS WAR PART V - LOL Ratings

It's quite fitting that a new thread is opened because this year starts a new chapter in ratings, namely the "Pray to god our hardcores don't tune out" era.

The Raw pre- and post-Wrestlemania clearly, without a shadow of a doubt, cement the fact that aside from WWE fans, nobody's watching this shit anymore. Wrestlemania can't even draw those FANS back in that tuned out.

And if they keep feeding us shit like RomanTHEguyWinsLOL, they'll be in 1.X territory faster than they can say "Please retire Vince".

Top 3 Youtube draws from this week's RAW (One of the most relevant global parameters):

#1



#2



#3



Reigns has consistently proven over the course of last year to be commanding huge global interest. Studying this parameter for the next few years or so would be interesting as WWE is more global than ever before with the emergence of the network.

I wish we could have a television ratings thread and a separate YouTube and social media views count thread.

Can't understand what's the big deal about Youtube is here. The thread specifically states that any drawing argument can be put forth, including Youtube. People are being a bit irrational asking for ratings to have a monopoly over this thread.

Don't really see youtube ratings as indicator of anything.
A video with a dog licking his balls can get bigger youtube ratings sometimes, it means nothing.
Yes but we're not comparing a video of a dog licking it's balls with a pro wrestling video. We're comparing pro wrestling videos with pro wrestling videos. You have a better tangible global indicator? Kindly bring it to our notice.

When YouTube views fail we'll get Facebook and Twitter followers :jericho3
Well what I can get from twitter is Ryder is a bigger draw than Roman :draper2

Why? There's the word "draw" in the thread -- that encompasses different stats from different forms of media which give weight to the drawability factor discussions. Weekly Nelson ratings are only one metric of many

Sorry pal I just don't buy into social media ratings as a reliable indicator
To me TV ratings are still the most reliable measure, its the best way to measure the popularity of the product as is now in comparison to past months/years.
