The Ratings: Memphis Wrestling TV 3.01.08

----This past weekend’s Memphis Wrestling TV show had an overall rating of 2.5 [42,308 viewers], which just below the 12 week average. The show had an almost 40% increase, but still not a great rating. The show did finish again with more viewers than it started with and had a nice increase in the 4th quarter.

----Last year for the first 9 weeks of the year, the ratings averaged 2.8 [47,437 viewers]. This year for the first 9 weeks of the “Rerun” season, the ratings average is 2.7 [45,043 viewers]. So, with them repeating 2004 show they still have retention of 95% from last year. So, it is not as bad as it seems and may be another reason for them to continue to do reruns and forget about taping live shows.
