For people who don’t quite understand the significance of a 12.7 rating, let me attempt to try to break it down and humiliate myself in the process. Pulling a 12.7 indicates that 12.7% of all televisions that were turned on at the time were tuned on to a specific broadcast, in this case the broadcast was Dream 11. The population of Japan is estimated around 127.3 million. Judging by the sheer fact that every electrical appliance currently turned on in my apartment originated from Japan and the monitor you’re reading this article was likely assembled in Japan, it’s safe to say that about…100 million people own a television. Now lets assume that half of those people (50,000,000) had their TV on during the broadcast of Dream.
That’s like, what…18 million people that watched Dream last week? Ah screw it, I think I’ve just wasted my allocated time to make a point in this article. Now it’s just one big fail. Look at Hong Man Choi over there, he has the ‘this article is going no where but it’s alright because I have a hot chick grasping on to my gargantuan hands’ look. While you’re trying to make sense of this, Hong Man Choi is spending the millions of Yen he made from getting leg locked by Minowaman. Just know that he did it with a 12.7 rating. That’s huge.
