Well I wasn't going to because Monday's RAW was 'miss-able' and boring to be quite honest, but if you insist:

Q1 - 3.62 rating / 5.21 million
Q2 - 3.27 rating / 4.70 million
Q3 - 3.30 rating / 4.75 million
Q4 - 3.16 rating / 4.55 million
Q5 - 3.32 rating / 4.64 million
Q6 - 3.30 rating / 4.62 million
Q7 - 3.20 rating / 4.48 million
Q8 - 3.42 rating / 4.92 million

The Q2 hour breakdown doesn't match up to what was reported for some reason, but ah well.

As for, from a ratings perspective 'how to book' RAW's after WrestleMania, it surely would be along the lines of:

Q1 - CM Punk and Chris Jericho
Q2 - MITB build
Q3 - SD! title build
Q4 - Kharma destroying someone
Q5 - Shaq and Show
Q6 - Undertaker and HHH
Q7 - MITB build
Q8 - Rock and Cena

Regardless of what this forum likes/dislikes, Cena will be in Q8 through the 'Chamber to 'Mania. If you're to look at the four key angles:

- Punk/Jericho
- Rock/Cena
- HHH/Taker
- Show/Shaq

It makes sense from a viewership standpoint that Show/Shaq gets the nod for starting hour 2, that is likely to bring in non-WWE casuals compared to HHH/Taker, if Rock316AE has the breakdown for the RAW after No Way Out 2008, I believe the above is proven. I think Punk/Jericho has to be in the starting quarter so it has a lot of viewers before a drop and a climb upwards. (alternatively, you put HHH/Taker in Q3 instead of Q6 so the big segments are spread out)

I wonder if WWE may tease Rock vs someone on a RAW leading up to WrestleMania (Rock vs Miz for arguments sake given their past 'history') only for the match not to begin to pop a big number? Would make sense and I don't think it would take away from Rock/Cena one bit.

How can you tell "Non-WWE" casuals tune in at 10 pm?


and no, i dont think the miz should be involved in Rock/cena build. Rock wont be working every raw between chamber through mania so teasing rock/miz is not going to work, It might even hurt the mania buyrate.

Rock vs cena just keep it simple. And since cena is going to be heel anyway whether WWE likes it or not, i think cena should just go back to his "thuganomics" gimmick for this entire build until mania. That would make it interesting instead of the same old "I am here everyday working my ass off while the rock does satellite promos" crap imo.

DMN, I don't have the quarter hour number but I think you're talking about the big Floyd/Show segment after NWO? that was probably the highest rated segment of 2008. It's a smart move to put Shaq/Show in the 10pm slot and that's what I said but no chance you can put two big stars and proven TV draws after a huge Shaq segment(especially for a guy who can't draw like Punk), no matter what you do you're going to lose a lot of viewers because Shaq brings a different fanbase, and he's not going to stay for something else. Rock and Rock/Cena in the main event, Shaq/Show top of the hour and Taker/HHH in the opening segment, that's the top matches and you need to promote them with the biggest audience, besides, HHH will never agree to be on a random segment and in this case, he's right.

As for Rock match, I don't think it's a smart move to hurt Rock's credibility with the fans after he promise something and then it's never happening, can draw a big quarter but it's not worth it in this situation.

By promoting a big non-WWE star like Shaq who will attract the 18-49 male audience?

Actually, Mayweather got between 2 and 5 million dollars for his match at Wrestlemania 24.

The fact is, that Wrestlemania with celebrities draws, especially today. Look at WM23 and WM24 when we got Trump and Mayweather - the cards weren't that good, the build wasn't something special too, but this two Wrestlemanias got most buys in history. Look at WM26 - amazing card - Taker/Shawn II, Cena-Batista, Edge-Y2J, Bret-Vince but it got only 880 000 buys. WM27 - extremely weak card with only one BIG match (Taker/HHH) but the appearance of The Rock made it 3rd or 4th most ordered in history.

So, if Shaq competes in this year's WM, I am 100% sure that WM28 will be the most ordered and watched Wrestlemania of all time. The Rock in a match (against Cena, the biggest match ever) + Shaq as a celebrity (who'll also compete in a match) - I'm damn sure it will get minimum of 1 400 000 buys.

if this doesnt get 1 million buys the E is in big trouble

Q - Just a quick question. Do you think it’s possible that the shift to younger viewers is related to the hour to hour losses? Surely, lots most kids are watching now and would it be possible that ten o’clock is the bedtime for 100,000 or so of their viewers? Doesn’t Smackdown air earlier, on a non-school night and not experience that loss? A thought.

I have wondered that too so let's look at the numbers from the 2/6 Raw. The show lost 362,000 viewers from hour one to hour two. In the people 18 to 49 demo, they lost 79,000 viewers. In the people 25-54 demo, they lost 108,000 people. In the people 55+ demo, they lost 179,000 people. So, it's just the opposite. They are turning off older people from hour one to hour two, not younger people.

Just watched RAW from last Monday Night there. I think the most talked about incident backstage just now must be the R-Truth/ The Miz botched incident.

R-Truth puts his hands onto the ropes, flips out of the ring towards The Miz, the Miz actaully shi*ts out from catching him. As much as i respect the Miz for being an awesome wrestler, The Miz made a BIG MISTAKE here. Thankfully R-Truth was not hurt bad.

But anyway Lance Storm and Georgary Helms have attacked MikeTheMIz on twitter, telling him hes a sh*t catcher, and he sh*t it from catching R-Truth.

RAW was quite a good show apart from this, 7/10
