This week's edition of Smackdown did a 2.9 broadcast rating, with a 5 share, according to Nielsen Media Research. That is down from last week's 3.0 and continues the show's recent downward ratings trend. Itís also the lowest number that the show has done in some time.
Just makes me wonder even more what the point of having Booker T turn heel by calling SD the minor leagues was when he was right. They desperately need some credible main event talent, because it looks like the Bradshaw push isn't helping things at all.

Is that a surprise to anyone......other than Vince and his writers?
And you're right about the Booker T heel turn. He's exactly right. SmackDown, as much as I liked it not too long ago, is now a minor league show compared to Raw. I hate that for Eddy Guerrero, who will ultimately get the blame even though he is one of the very few bright spots of the current SmackDown.

Nah, not gonna happen. Eddie seems to be there star of the show now, I'm pretty sure he's exempt from blame over thngs like ratings. Didn't NWO do a bad buyrate? And didn't the sheetz say that Eddie wasn't being blamed for it?
After the first match, which was great...it stunk. By the end of the Royal Rumble match, I was waiting for the crowd to go NWO-era crowd behavior and start throwing things into the ring. The other matches were subpar at best.
