NBC Universal not happy about last week’s Raw third hour viewership drop

May 7, 2019 - by Steve Gerweck

Dave Meltzer on last night’s Raw and Vince having his back vs the wall due to ratings:

“As we saw on Raw Vince knew he had to make changes since their back was vs the wall. Is it going to work in the long run? I don’t know. He doesn’t want to give up on the idea of brands because they have so much talent. Pressure was there though from both sides NBC Universal and FOX. They both would not be happy with bad ratings for the amount they’re spending. These companies want ratings with the kind of money they’re spending.

NBC Universal (USA) was really upset about last week’s rating especially the way it dropped off in the 3rd hour and was asking questions if ratings are this bad why did we give away Roman Reigns? So the pressure is on and for now the top guys in the company will work both shows.”
