Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
Ah got to love people on here trying to run damage control. It is down basically half a million in a week but people say it is the same....When you are down 20% how is that the same? When "Pawn Stars" beats you thats when you know your in trouble....
Just further evidence that WWE needs to shake things up or 2012 will be a very bad year for them.
Im not a fan of pawn stars at all but i find shows of its ilk (hardcore pawn, cash cowboys, american pickers, etc) strangely addictive, theyre all repetitive and happen in short segments so its no harm to tune in and out, which makes it a perfect show to run against raw because whenever raw starts to get boring (such when divas come out) you can just flip over and catch a segment without needing to see the whole show.
Im guessing part of the reason the ryder/eve segment bombed so much was viewers assumed the diva match was starting and tuned out. (shame for them, they missed that thrilling tyre changing action)
