Yes, not only that but the second quarter was always a huge segment in terms of gain, I don't remember the exact date but somewhere in 2010 this segment became a ratings killer because of the boring and repetitive concept of the show. RAW at that time increased the audience for the entire show and for good reason, At this point Nitro had little to no effect on them.
