The bottom line is we do not know why the numbers went down. 1% could be increase in pirating...3% economy is BAD. Yes, some of you might not want to be reminded of the numbers, but it is bad. 1% could be the lineups sucked. Don't act like you know when you don't. With that said, have a wonderful day.  
If you were right, I would be agreeing with you.
