The Ratings: Memphis Wrestling TV 9.08.07

----The 9.08.07 Saturday night Memphis Wrestling show did an overall 3.1 [51,542 viewers] rating. As I wrote last week, all I can think of is..well..average. The show has settled in this ratings scoring it 3 out of the last 4 weeks. The show started good, but then lost over 16,000 viewers for the 2cnd quarter and never gained them back. TK2 quarter was the first quarter, so their streak ended with gaining viewers. Brian Christopher also ended his streak [of losing viewers] by gaining viewers in his segment. Good news for Derrick King/Johnny Dotson as their 17 minute match spread over the last two quarters and they gained over 5,000 viewers to watch their match. Not a huge gain, but no one turned the TV off for such an uncharacteristic long TV bout. The show finished with over 10,000 less viewers than it started with, so yes, people turned it off as the show progressed, which is not a good thing.
