Great Question, it has to do with Raw being live, when Raw is live people don't know what is gonna happen so that means more people are gonna watch, and with all the rumors these days going on the internet like The Rock returning people will stay glued to the tv, with Smackdown people just real the spoilers, if it doesn't interests them then they don't watch it.































BQ: No Idea.

I agree with you. Smackdown is better than Raw and deserves the better ratings, but Raw is WWE's flagship show and WWE cares about it more. Plus people don't want to watch Smackdown as much as Raw since they want to do something on their Friday Night. Also not everyone has My9































BQ: Viewership

Also not everyone get what ever TV channel its on know. I have Directv and have not been able to watch it for a year. I would have to get one of those digital converters to watch it on standard tv not going through all that.

SmackDown! is usually the superior brand, but when Nexus came along, a lot more people have been tuning into Raw, just because of the simple fact that Raw has a better storyline going right now. Once this Nexus craze dies down, SmackDown! will go back to being the superior brand.















BQ: Just simply by the number of people who tune into them.

I can't watch Smackdown because I don't get that channel. That's why I'm anxious for the move to Sy Fy.































On a side note, Raw has more big names, which is a contributing factor.

Raw has better storylines. Like the Nexus storyline, the GM and the Sheamus and Otron. Also all the kids love Cena and all the adults love Randy Orton and all the ladies love John Morrison and Evan Bourne.















Also it is live and you have no idea what's gonna happened. Also the guest's make it intresting. And rumors going around like The Rock being the GM.















Smackdown has the better matchs but dull and boring storylines. Also it isn't live.































Raw = Good Storylines and the suspence.































Smackdown! = Better wrestlers and more Entertainment.































BQ: How many people watch it and how fast the tickets sell out. Also by who buys more stuff from the brand.

Raw is live. People already know what's going to happen on Smackdown. Plus, in my opinion, all the good people are on Raw. Examples: John Cena and Randy Orton. Smackdown got rid of the people I liked. Examples: Jeff Hardy and Undertaker.































BQ: The number of people watching

As you know, all the gays and teen hos always watch Cena on Mondays. Though I watch Raw, I always mute my TV when Cena comes on. And during that time I'll make a quick phone call to a few hundred people. Only to come back and find the slut magnet still running his faggot mouth off.















The ratings are always deermined by views. And the amount of people tuned in to that channel. It is summed up and is sorted by number and put into a rating from 1-5. The old days, it would rarely be lower than 4.3. Almost evry home was tuned into the WWF Monday Night Wars. There were even 5.0 ratings back when TVs started to come out. Wrestling was not even dicovered to be fake back then. Then the ratings went down over the years, but in the later years, as it got more intense, more fans came and were hooked on seeing a big redneck come out and open up cans of whoop*ss so to speak. Then, the WWF was sued by the World Wildlife Fund, who would then ban them from using the name or logo of WWF Attitude. Fortunately, they had Ruthless Aggression and kept the ratings going in the high 3s and low 4s. After which, the entire McMahon family turned homosexual and made Cena change his gimmick because he gave them BJs whenever and wherever. Then triggered them to let him win against everyone. Then things went downhill from there. If there were no sluts and hos and desparate teens and women and gays, there would be no Cena fans. Smackdown gets the views of the awesome people. The ones who don't live their lives on wrestling. But that is a story for a rainy day and I am going to the bar now. K bye!

its not available in all the households,































being recorded is a part of it, but also































its on broadcast TV on a 'non network' -- makes it really vulnerable to pre-emption, or simply random scheduling































as MyTV is a syndication package, its sold to local affiliates... in some markets its picked up by an independant and will air in Prime time like its supposed to... in others it'll be picked up by a station which is a broadcast affiliate to one of the 5 real networks: ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, CW, and will air on a saturday, or at 3 am or both

Raw is live, its on USA. Everyone with Cable should get it. If smackdown was better it would be on a bigger network. What I don't understand is why is smackdown on my network tv, nxt is on sci fi.

For whatever reason, less people watch Smackdown than Raw. The ratings are determined by the number of households watching. The ratings aren't determined by quality, which doesn't make much sense. This is why TNA gets very low ratings compared to SD and Raw.
