Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread 2013
It's a new year so we decided a new ratings thread would be suitable. Discuss all ratings related topics in here please. Let the shit storm begin...again.
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.
"...and thank you for making this Raw Ratings Thread 'where it all begins, again', thank you very much!"
Finnnnnddd a wayyy, a way to be...
2.8-3.0 for tonight, depending on the score of the American football match. Hilarious drops for Miz/Barrett/Kofi/Brodus/Cesaro/Del Rio/Divas.
Next week's show will lead Raw firmly into the promised land of the 3.0's. Then it's back to the 2's until the Undertaker's WM feud begins.
