  1. Meh. Not good at all. They lost 15,000 viewers. The replay took a pounding. Lucha Underground is not in safe situation where they can afford to lose viewers. Plus, last night’s show was pretty boring.

    Not a good week 2.

    • There’s going to be a natural drop-off from Week 1 to 2. How much of a drop-off is the big question mark for any show. Retaining 90 percent of last week’s audience is pretty good for Week 2. [JC]
