    Lol Smackdown Season Premiere dropped in ratings.

      Why would it draw because they call it “a season premiere” it is new episodes every week of the year, not exactly the same as the return of The Walking Dead for a new season. Did you laugh the week prior when it ticked up for “The Draft” which was actually a ratings gimmick that people would want to see as opposed to “its a whole new season of the show that never stops airing”. Reminder AEW still hasn’t gained viewers since its first week, NXT is in the tank and nobody watching whatever Anthem calls their waste of money. As well as both major shows on cable losing viewers regularly, your gut should hurt weekly looking at “wrestling” numbers, unless its “the key demo” mullarky keep your spirits high.

        Both, thinking Raw still acted as two shows Raw is War and Warzone. I mean the one major cable wrestling show.
