    Do you have ‘Baroness Von Sketch Show’ (IFC) ratings, please? Thanks!

    WWE gets another “win” by packing their dead show full of big “stars” to please the boomer demo while young people who matter (and spend money) are travelling to visit friends and family, just one more reason why this financial doping needs them kicked off of the rating charts. We need to let their stock holders know about this dirty business to help inflate WWEs dying business as AEW and Cody and the boys really start to show them up and show the world how its going to be done from now on.

      I bet you were foaming at the mouth as you typed that. Please continue, cry more! You AEW neckbeards don’t have much of a social life so I doubt traveling was the reason unless you mean traveling from the basement to your grandma’s recliner upstairs. AEW could drop to 300k and you lot will still be saying, “bUt wE WoN tHe DeMo of hip, young, sexy, smarter fans!” You’re going to run out of excuses soon enough. Last week it was the main roster stars and it didn’t count. This week it was plain ole “developmental” (as Omega described them) outdrawing geriatric Jericho. (You guys love throwing the word “boomer” around but Chris isn’t that far off from that age group himself.)

      Take your 2nd L and move on.

      On behalf of the wrestling fanbase, I sincerely apologize to the author of this article. We aren’t all like this, lol! 😅


    • MacMan

      You do get nobody that is a fan reads this not cares, you are ranting on a site that has zero to do with wrestling. Do that on your social media you may get more people who give two cents about your rantings

    I noticed the M audience for Mexican soccer games (in Spanish) was roughly twice in the 18-49 than it was in both the 12-34 and 50+ categories. What do you think that means long term for soccer viewing and for soccer itself?

    Note: the relatively high ratings for Spanish language games is pretty remarkable given that only somewhere around 15% of the US market speaks Spanish and it seems unlikely that people who don’t speak Spanish are watching a lot of it, so any movement in that Spanish language audience should have huge implications for ratings.
