"If I don't like something, I'm still going to keep watching it." ...yup makes as much sense as WWE programming these days. And people wonder why they have a Leaprecaun as a GM!
The Leaprecaun as GM thing holds little weight because it was an old angle that was brought back into a comedy bit. Did I enjoy it? Meh, I was indifferent to it but does that mean other casual viewers enjoyed it. Probably. That's where subjective comes in to play.
DUDE! YOU CANNOT BE A LOYAL CASUAL FAN! Loyality and Causal have too very different...OPPOSITE definitions! Its the loyal discontent fans that continue to watch that give the WWE high ratings.
And I never claimed a loyal and casual fan can be grouped. I meant to put a slash in between loyal and casual. Point still stands. If WWE has loyal and casual viewers who gives them high ratings, me not watching it won't matter because it won't effect their product.
WCW: Facts are facts. The ratings in WCW started to slip...why? Quality programming. Is that opinionated...yes! And enough fans opinions of the show is that it was of poor quality thus WCW was bought out. My point...don't wait until everyone is scream you suck do something about you're programming....do something while you see the writing on the wall!
No, that's not the reason WCW was brought out. WCW was brought out because Time Warner didn't want to be associated with the wrestling business as they saw wrestling as beneath them. Hulk Hogan has stated that and even Larry Zbyszko. WCW was losing money but they were still drawing good numbers that even TNA no where near gets and close to what Raw draws. They were doing fine with the ratings.
