Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread 2013
Any expectation above a 2.8-2.9 is not even realistic. Not only because of the strong competition but also because of how low they drew in the last two weeks, nobody is bumping a 1.0 overnight unless it's a blockbuster, once a generation mega buzz like Rock's return was in 2011. Add to that, the promotion for Rock's return was the weakest of all time. They just threw a random ad or mention like it was some side attraction. Next week is when it should start to go up to 3.0s again. I imagine that Rock's promo will be in the 9pm segment. Especially after they ruined any strong/reliable timeslot with the horrendous 3 hour concept. Then probably an appearance during the TLC match to close the show.
Making up excuses already, nice.
