Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)

Well I wasn't going to because Monday's RAW was 'miss-able' and boring to be quite honest, but if you insist:

Q1 - 3.62 rating / 5.21 million
Q2 - 3.27 rating / 4.70 million
Q3 - 3.30 rating / 4.75 million
Q4 - 3.16 rating / 4.55 million
Q5 - 3.32 rating / 4.64 million
Q6 - 3.30 rating / 4.62 million
Q7 - 3.20 rating / 4.48 million
Q8 - 3.42 rating / 4.92 million

The Q2 hour breakdown doesn't match up to what was reported for some reason, but ah well.

As for, from a ratings perspective 'how to book' RAW's after WrestleMania, it surely would be along the lines of:

Q1 - CM Punk and Chris Jericho
Q2 - MITB build
Q3 - SD! title build
Q4 - Kharma destroying someone
Q5 - Shaq and Show
Q6 - Undertaker and HHH
Q7 - MITB build
Q8 - Rock and Cena

Regardless of what this forum likes/dislikes, Cena will be in Q8 through the 'Chamber to 'Mania. If you're to look at the four key angles:

- Punk/Jericho
- Rock/Cena
- HHH/Taker
- Show/Shaq

It makes sense from a viewership standpoint that Show/Shaq gets the nod for starting hour 2, that is likely to bring in non-WWE casuals compared to HHH/Taker, if Rock316AE has the breakdown for the RAW after No Way Out 2008, I believe the above is proven. I think Punk/Jericho has to be in the starting quarter so it has a lot of viewers before a drop and a climb upwards. (alternatively, you put HHH/Taker in Q3 instead of Q6 so the big segments are spread out)

I wonder if WWE may tease Rock vs someone on a RAW leading up to WrestleMania (Rock vs Miz for arguments sake given their past 'history') only for the match not to begin to pop a big number? Would make sense and I don't think it would take away from Rock/Cena one bit.
