Over saturation and people staying at home, they get tired of seeing the same shit all the time. I've spend a lot more time at home this year, and I've watched a lot less television. Just tired of TV. Another thing to ponder, with the pandemic, the USA Network is on pay cable TV, so maybe a lot of the audience can't afford to pay for TV right now when they are trying to make ends meet, seems like TV is the first luxury to go.

Well a few years ago they made the fans GM, so it’s all our fault. Especially the Cultaholic team.

1.5 million viewers is embarrassing for a show that once had an average of 5 million viewers weekly. At this point, Raw is like the Simpsons; a show that was once at the forefront of popular culture that today is not even a shadow of what it once was.

They aren’t fans of them pouring gunge over peoples heads. And that crappy, watered down version of the old hardcore title.

The Fiend is why I don't watch this garbage anymore. Windham Rotundo is a talented, second generation wrestler who can cut a killer promo and work his ass off. The Fiend is just a third-rate scifi character with a puppet show. I want to watch WRESTLING, not a f**king puppet show.

I think when USA means adult content they might be suggesting that an actual adult write the show.

USA didn’t even say anything, wrestling dirt sheets make it up for a sense of relevancy

what astounds me is that aew with no crowd has offered great performance and moments. and the small crowd feels full. in contrast to wwe rubbish scripts filled a solid roster. it feels hollow no matter how many movesets. its been hit and miss. aew is not perfect it just keeps evolving and makes me wonder what will happen in the year(s) to come. their friendly deals with nwa, impact, lucha aaa and hopefully njpw is making wrestling interesting. i know impact has no crowd but they have good performers and that small avalanche growing makes you curious. wwe cant compete with that nor get involved for many reasons.

WWE messed up when they made a part time wrestler, Brock Lesnar, the top champion. People want to see all the belts having a part to play in each show. WWE also has too many wrestlers and too many belts, which makes it confusing to some of the newer generation of wrestling fans. If WWE is to be saved, it has to go back to its roots. Once a week live wrestling and the rest is recorded. They also have to release many wrestlers to meet a salary cap and it would also help with the story plots. Decreasing the pay-per-view events would really help to build better fueds, I'd say by half (6 per year). Before WWE became the top wrestling organization, AWA (American Wrestling Association) was the top. AWA also made huge mistakes that WWE is making right now, but they never recovered and went bankrupt. If WWE does not act now, history will repeat itself and WWE will be no more.

Honestly I'm pretty new to to the world of wrestling and AEW is a huge part of that, part of the reason the WWE always turned me off is that it seemed hellbent of insulting your intelligence, and I don't mean the stuff to goad the audience or just normal wrestling screw ups, it's more the trying to merge the fan and corporate cultures, domineering over the talent until you feel bad for them, being abnormally fixated on being no. 1, it detracts from everything else going on in the ring making it hard to watch, AEW could easily turn out that way or end up just underdelivering, but right now it's all new stuff and even when it goes wrong is all new with no shadow hanging over it, the relative maturity of content aimed at the audience isn't that big of factor to me, even as a fan of the hardcore stuff and Jackass enthusiast that I am, if I need a fix I'll find it, just work on the overall quality and try to fade the looming presence of outside problems into the background by solving them, preferably ethically and discreetly

Why are we talking about TV ratings in 2020.

TV ratings couldnt be a worse metric for viewership.

It's not WWE's fault that USA is in a dying business.

Only morons would actually believe the USA Network thing. The source of that article sounds like it was written by a 10 year old. "They want more adult content. Not sexy adult, but dark and violent adult". Sounds legit.

Does USA ever consider that the ratings are so bad in part because they force WWE to keep that third hour of Raw?

Low Ratings come from one thing, and one thing only – It’s the WWE’s incessantly repetitive, mind numbing storytelling style. There is no point tuning in to RAW when the matches are basically the same as last week (and usually the week before as well).
