Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
DMN, I don't have the quarter hour number but I think you're talking about the big Floyd/Show segment after NWO? that was probably the highest rated segment of 2008. It's a smart move to put Shaq/Show in the 10pm slot and that's what I said but no chance you can put two big stars and proven TV draws after a huge Shaq segment(especially for a guy who can't draw like Punk), no matter what you do you're going to lose a lot of viewers because Shaq brings a different fanbase, and he's not going to stay for something else. Rock and Rock/Cena in the main event, Shaq/Show top of the hour and Taker/HHH in the opening segment, that's the top matches and you need to promote them with the biggest audience, besides, HHH will never agree to be on a random segment and in this case, he's right.
As for Rock match, I don't think it's a smart move to hurt Rock's credibility with the fans after he promise something and then it's never happening, can draw a big quarter but it's not worth it in this situation.
