Title: SmackDown July 4th Rating In. "Shocking"

The Wrestling Observer/Figure Four Online is reporting that the July 4th edition of WWE Friday Night Smackdown drew a final 1.6 broadcast rating. This was considered a decent number for falling on a holiday.

:lol2:

"Triple H = Ratings." :lol2:

"The number is considered decent"? Holiday or not, that's a shockingly horrible rating for a program like SmackDown. In fact isn't that one of, if not the lowest ever ratings for a SmackDown televised event?

Also on the subject. WWE had expected there to be a 20% drop from the usual (which would have taken them to a 1.9 ish) on this rating however in fact the percentage numbers drop was more closer to 30-35%. Again, not good.

Also, also on the subject lol. Here is the breakdown for the numbers of the weekly wrestling broadcasts, the week of Monday 30th-Friday 4th, to show just how bad of a rating it was.

TNA iMPACT - 1.0
ECW on Sci-Fi - 1.4
SmackDown - 1.6
RAW - 3.5

What it means I guess, is for a holiday when most people have something better to do then watch tv, its a good rating. I didn't watch it Friday, thats what tivo is for.

Yeah and on the 4 of July you really aren't going catch no one in the house watching T.V.  between 8pm and 10pm.

Espacially on a friday night. SD usually gets a 2.4-2.6. It barely dropped one full point. It really isn't that bad.

I'd love to see how Impact would do on a friday night, yet alone a friday night that's also a holiday where EVERYONE is out watching fireworks or at barbecues or whatever.
