Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
Exactly what I thought would happen.
Dave Meltzer was the source of those ratings and here is his breakdown in the lead story of the Observer:
As far as people tuning out, there was, in fact, a huge tune-out factor actually during the angle itself, with 17.7% of those viewing turning off their TV or switching to another channel in the last few minutes of the angle. It was 21% leaving in the Male 18-49 demo, or one in five, which is kind of staggering if you think about it. I had expected the “train wreck” mentality where people would hate it but stick with it and then tune out for the next match, but they didn’t wait. But as far as long-term, there was no effect since almost all came back to the show roughly 45 minutes later, watched one segment, and there was a massive tune-out again from there, which is the normal third hour pattern as people get tired of the show late..
