Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
You thought the Christmas Eve edition of Raw would get a 2.6? That's setting expectations a bit too high, IMO. It's Christmas Eve, people are with their families. I'm actually surprised it got a 2.2 because I thought more people would DVR it if they wanted to watch it.
It's the same reason I'm not expecting a huge rating for New Years Eve. It's taped and I doubt many people will be in to watch it all the way through.
Like Starbuck said, if on January 7th, the ratings are still shit with a TLC WWE Championship match lined up and The Rock returning for the first time since Raw 1000, then you start to worry.
The last two Christmas eve Raw's took place in 2001 and in 2007,
in 2001 they got a 3.5 rating and
in 2007 they got a 2.5 rating.
so yeah, getting 2.2 sucks
