• “We have far more fans now than we have ever had” – Vince McMahon
During WWE’s third quarter investors’ call, Vince McMahon was asked about their TV shows’ continuous downfall in ratings.
Below is what Vince said:
“When you look at television ratings, that’s what they are. With us, it’s one of our many measurements. When you look at total, when you get into YouTube, etc…we have far more fans now than we have ever had.
When you look at television ratings, it is what it is. Not to say we don’t want to increase them, of course we do. Aside from that, our total audience is much bigger, so you can’t just hang your hat on ‘ratings are down.’
Without question, we have to have a mothership, and we do with RAW and SmackDown, and from there, clips and comments and other videos, take it to the next week or the next year.
We’re never off the air. It’s fine to say ratings are down, I wanted to give you that bit of color in terms of overall viewpoint.”
