Not big on pointing out how much other TV programs/games/whatnot can harm Raw's viewership on a regular basis but I think Monday at 10:00pm (and shortly before, which would carry over the 10:00pm mark) was one such example where Raw was hurt by something else on TV. Roughly at 10:00pm, it was the peak of NBC's prime time videotape delay playing the diving and swimming events at the Olympics, which did astronomical numbers.

I like your suggestion of using Punk at the top of one of the hours on his own to check out how he does, but the 9:00pm timeslot is going to receive the asterisk that the Bryan/Sheamus streetfight did this week, as doubtless a healthy number of viewers forgetting about the first hour are just showing up to join the viewers who were along for the ride in the first hour. At least for a good while, anyway.
