This is really funny story
programming on television over the weekend in the closely watched 18- to 49-year-old viewership demographic.
After attracting an impressive amount of television viewers in its week one slate of broadcasts, XFL viewership declined roughly 30% in week two.
But as any once-burned XFL fan knows, a hot start in week one does not necessarily mean a hot finish. In 2001, the hot start, due to a heavy dose of marketing and buzz fueled by its 50-50 owners in McMahon and NBC, led to an unexpectedly strong debut with more than 15 million viewers. But after disappointing fans with a lackluster product on the field, ratings tanked in week two by 52%. By season’s end, ratings fell 85% from where they began, forcing NBC to pull the plug as the network and McMahon’s WWE each ate a $35 million loss.
