Segment Breakdown
Source Wrestling Observer Newsletter
Quote:
Raw on 2/6 did a 3.25 rating and 4.61 million viewers, falling from the post-Rumble high the week before. When it comes to viewers on Raw, they are 13% down from what the show was doing at this time last year. It finished third for the night on cable.

The show did a 2.9 in Male teens (up 21% from the post-Rumble show), 3.0 in Males 18-49 (down 9%), 0.9 in female teens (down 36%), and 1.2 in Women 18-49 (down 20%). It was 69.4% males, higher than usual, so the drop in rating looks to be a combination of males being strong because of no sports competition, and women being way down, possibly due to "The Voice" and "Smash."

In the segment-by-segment, the opening segment with HHH doing a promo did a strong 3.62 open.

Daniel Bryan vs. Big Show lost 508,000 viewers.

Bryan's interview and the taped segment with John Cena and NASCAR driver Carl Edwards gained 43,000 viewers.

David Otunga vs. Sheamus lost 197,000 viewers.

The Chris Jericho interview and C.M. Punk coming out segment gained 94,000 viewers, which is another bad showing for the 10 p.m. segment.

Randy Orton & Great Khali vs. Cody Rhodes & Wade Barrett lost 22,000 viewers.

So what happened is that usually people tune in at 10 p.m. and leave at 10:15 p.m., and here either they tuned in and left immediately, or never tuned in, because you had virtually nobody leaving instead of the usual hundreds of thousands up and hundreds of thousands down.

The Divas eight-person match lost 139,000 viewers.

And the six-way with Jericho vs. Punk vs. R-Truth vs. Miz vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Kofi Kingston gained 443,000 viewers, low for an overrun and finished at 3.42.

As far as the demo movement for the main event, Males 12-17 went from 2.3 to 3.0, Males 18-49 from 3.0 to 3.4, Females 12-17 from 1.1 to 1.0 and Women 18-49 from 1.0 to 1.2.

Looks like I was right about Show bringing down the viewership in his match against DB. Feel sorry for DB.

Jesus Jericho just sucks at drawing people in doesn't he. Bryan and Punk did a shit ton better last week. Yeah, and he's supposed to elevate Punk, a guy who's already so much more of a draw than Jericho.

But you also gotta take into consideration that the segment ended at like 10:05, then moved on to a commercial and a shitty tag match nobody wants to see. It's probably a guarantee the number would be a lot better if Jericho/Punk went the full quarter or at least majority of it.

Holy crap at that 10pm slot. I mean, what the actual fuck? 94,000 viewers for Jericho/Punk? I seriously was expecting it to do a lot better than that. That's freaking horrible and a terrible sign going forward. It wasn't even a match! Ouch, ouch, ouch.

Yep Big "ratings no" Show limiting Bryan's wrestling ability took him down with him unfortunately, but at least Bryan's promo after brought them back in despite John Cena and "No charisma" nascar guy sending them back away again.

Poor Jericho can't get anyone to care for him, which really makes me pissed that Punk is working a wrestlemania program with him and not Hunter .

Don't think it's fair to shit on Bryan vs Show since the 2nd quarter seems to always lose viewers who just tuned in for the opener.

Orton has lost 700k in that segment fwiw

I think I predicted this for Jericho/Punk.

"I love Chris Jericho to death, I love CM Punk, but if WWE is truly looking to book a Road to Wrestlemania feud between those two for the WWE Championship, I foresee weak quarter hours for a feud that will be viewed as a distant, distant almost quasi-midcard match for Wrestlemania beneath The Rock and John Cena. The only way to cement Punk at this point due in large part to WWE's botching of the Summer of Punk as we entered autumn was to have the feud everyone wanted, with a newly heel-turned Triple H. That would stand up as a worthy WWE Championship match and would draw strong ratings and would manage to not be utterly overshadowed by Rock/Cena the way I guarantee Jericho/Punk will be. Oh well. Again, I love Punk, I love Jericho (and I love Triple H!) but Jericho is not suited to put Punk over the top as a firmly entrenched megastar who can actually draw on his own. Triple H is."

It has to be repeated. And made more clear.

Forget about elevating Punk. Forget about it. I'd sincerely just like to see a WWE Championship program that doesn't get blown away by Rock/Cena and Triple H/Undertaker in importance. Remember how Cena/Batista was a match that, even in the face of the Streak vs. Career match, could easily have headlined that year's Wrestlemania? (In fact, Cena and Batista did much better at drawing in their segments, as Michaels has never drawn especially well, necessarily and Taker can be hit and miss depending who he's working with.)

So far the angle is better-written than Triple H/Jericho from ten years ago, but then, it'd be hard to match that in awfulness. But that doesn't mean it's going to draw that much better, or be anything but a glorified midcard match at Wrestlemania. It's sad. All of that build for Punk, and it's probably all going to add up to just about nothing in the end (at least as far as this Wrestlemania-to-Wrestlemania 2011-to-2012 year goes).

There's one band-aid they can use and they must. For the rest of the Road to Wrestlemania, or at least beginning after the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view, Jericho/Punk should open every Raw; Triple H/Undertaker should take the 10:00pm slot; Rock/Cena the final segment and overrun.

Wouldn't RAW do better with an earlier timeslot? Since they're shafting us with the PG bullshit, it doesn't need to be after 9 because it's aimed at children.

Can't say I'm surprised with this terrible Jericho/Punk segment number because Jericho destroyed his star power for no reason for weeks with a stupid character and Punk never had a star power. Jericho needs a few weeks on main timeslots to get back the audience he lost after he acted like a clown just to make a simple point in a promo. Below average overrun gain because again, same case with Jericho and no star power in this segment. you can't open with fucking Taker after a year he wasn't on TV and HHH promo, then put a bunch of random wrestlers in the main event with no drawing power besides one guy who had it but ruined it for no fucking reason, I wonder who came up with this idea.

Show is going to be in the second biggest match on the WM28 card, you need to put him against main eventers in the main time slots so the audience will see him as a bigger deal than a big guy who wrestles mid carders in matches that nobody cares about. Show should be Orton's tag partner on RAW.

Boring and predictable breakdown overall.
