Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)

God I am I sorry I missed all this as it happened (stupid work conference) but after seeing the number the shitstorm that followed was amazingly entertaining. Great posts from the usual suspects (DesRow, Starbuck, etc) and some GREAT trolling by Rock316AE.

My take on the numbers. Hey look its the same 4-4.5 million that watch Raw LIVE on TV every week. And considering it was going head to head with the Daytona 500 its not a terrible # (not saying its good but its not terrible). If the WWE wants long-term ratings increase then obviosuly the wil need to start and try different things b/c the bringing back stars for a few weeks short-term ratings boost is not working anymore (or at least not working as well anymore) I really do think (at least I am giving the WWE some benefit of the doubt) that they are realizing this and are looking to take some new directions with creative, booking, and the building of new stars after this year's WM. Even since June of 2011 I can see signs of them starting to move in a better direction creatively and booking wise but everytime they take a step forward they seem to then take at least 3/4 of a step backwards.

3.5 rating / ~5.1 million - Overrun 1 - Rock promo beginning
3.3 rating / ~4.8 million - Overrun 2 - conclusion of Rock/Cena


While Rock's segment had the highest rating, it looks like the Punk/Jericho segment had the highest (or at least joint highest) viewership of the night. Quite astonishing if true, considering Jericho hasn't really drawn since he got back. Punk and Bryan though drawing well too it seems but that would be extremely surprising if it was indeed higher than Rock/Cena.

The in-depth quarter-by-quarter breakdowns later will tell us more. If we are to believe that the Daytona 500 had a effect, then the race was red-flagged at about 21:53, which is halfway through Q4, resuming at about ~00:00, after RAW had ended. So hour 2 and the overrun should not have been affected by Daytona.
Won't that unbalance the average?If Punk/Jericho had about 3.4s Q1/Q2 and Q3 was about the same so shouldn't Hour 1 average about 3.35 something? For overall ratings that means that there were several Below 3.0s rating which has to include 10 pm slot.So that report isn't true at all.

Jesus Christ.

ITS THE WM BUYRATE THAT MATTERS, ITS THE WM BUYRATE VINCE CARES ABOUT.

THAT is why Rock was brought back, and no doubt they will succeed in geting that big buyrate.

Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)

I hate this thread. I swear this is where all of the moaning bitches come and complain about the product and where the product is heading. This stupid complaint that there's no talent as well, do you think in 1997 people thought 'Rocky Maivia' was gonna be one of the biggest things in wrestling history? Talent needs to develop, gimmicks will be changed, some will work, some wont. It's not like you don't have any promise at all, you have talented workers with the likes of Dolph Ziggler etc. If the product is that good awful to you then fuck off and go watch something else.

This thread is about as hilarious as the many of dolts who think they know the financial structure of the WWE.

oh, and this certainly IS one of the worst rosters ever, look at it, a complete lack of star power.

Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)

I love it how hypocritical the Rock marks are showing themselves to be now. Even though they always were. Show with Punk pulls a low rating, it's all his fault. Show with Rock pulls a low rating, oh it's the entire show's fault. The rest of the roster sucks. Daytona 500 and all that shit. It's what a ton of us have been saying all along, one guy is not a draw. The entire show with interesting storylines is the draw. Now that Dwayne "The Gawd" Johnson disappointed, Rock marks are looking for whatever excuses possible.

Wrestlemania is still going to do huge, so you can have that.






best.

Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)

Why do the people in this thread keep calling each other derogatory terms like "Rock marks" or "Punk marks" and the like? Are you all children? Jesus. It's a group effort here, not a one-man show. We should be addressing the problems as a whole, not looking for one guy to be a hot fix.

Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)

We're all marks. And besides, that's the point many of us were trying to make all along, it's only until now when a certain someone didn't do as good as people were expecting, it's suddenly become the truth. It isn't a one-man show. It's a 2 hour show. We can't ever put the blame on one guy for a 2 hour show pulling a good or bad number. Not Rock, Punk, Cena, whoever.






best.
