Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
Q - Just a quick question. Do you think it’s possible that the shift to younger viewers is related to the hour to hour losses? Surely, lots most kids are watching now and would it be possible that ten o’clock is the bedtime for 100,000 or so of their viewers? Doesn’t Smackdown air earlier, on a non-school night and not experience that loss? A thought.
I have wondered that too so let's look at the numbers from the 2/6 Raw. The show lost 362,000 viewers from hour one to hour two. In the people 18 to 49 demo, they lost 79,000 viewers. In the people 25-54 demo, they lost 108,000 people. In the people 55+ demo, they lost 179,000 people. So, it's just the opposite. They are turning off older people from hour one to hour two, not younger people.
