Do you believe WWE's claims that they outperform all these other networks?

Default Do you believe WWE's claims that they outperform all these other networks?

you know those "statistics" they show up "we had more viewers than ABC, FOX, etc. combined"































I think they also said they get more female viewers than Oxygen.















































Think tha'ts true? or just hyped up?

I don't believe these claims. WWE is just hyped up when it comes to their claims.

Depends what is on. If Two and a half men or Big Bang Theory is on and WWE says they had more viewers, I know they are lying.

it's usally semantics....































look for 'qualifying words'































coles favorite line is :















"Raw is the Longest Running, weekly, episodic, series in TV history" or some such















-- episodic: automatically removes News programs















-- weekly: takes out most scripted series as they all take season breaks in the summer































next time you see one of them, read each word individually, and ask why is that word there and also pay attention to demographic terms like "More women over 70' etc as they are looking for any claim of superiority no matter how Narrow (during NFL seasons they routinely lose pure ratings to Monday Night Football... but they will find that one subset, of gender/age./race in whcih they Won, and that is the stat they cite































its like saying "yeah 5x more people watched Footbvall last week, but we had 50% more Hispanic women under 30."... and they could have lost among Hispanic women under 30 to Two Broke Girls", but because NFL got Number one, that's who they are looking for any claim over."There are 3 kinds of Lies: Lies, d&^% lies, and Statistics." -- Mark Twain

Yes. Its true. They provide the source. I looked at the Nielsen ratings. WWE actually does outperform almost every network.

Initially I want to say that they are hyping it up for more views. On the other hand these claims are easily researched for anyone with a pc. I don't think they would make a claim that would cause neilsen ratings would call them out on. So I say they should be correct but anything is possible with the wwe.

Not True. The current WWE(since 2007) ratings is just like WCW back in 1995-2000 because WWE has aired way too much programming(TV and PPV) so they need to decrase it by having Saturday Morning Slam to cancelled, NXT & Superstars merging together, gimmick PPVs getting a makover & cancel HiAC PPV.
