Default Re: WWE falling apart?!

Since when did ratings reflect the quality of the show? . When there are numerous other factors which effect the rating.

Segment Breakdown

LASTWEEK
Quote:
Raw on 2/20 did a 3.24 rating and 4.63 million viewers, an increase that appears to have been fueled by coming the day after Elimination Chamber and the HHH/Undertaker confrontation.

The show did a 2.8 in Male teenagers (up 8%), 2.9 in Males 18-49 (up 7%), 1.2 in Female teenagers (up 100%) and 1.1 in Women 18-49 (even to the prior week). The audience was 68.1% male. The show was 5th for the night on cable, and for only the second time in modern history, the NCIS rerun, the show USA ran at 8 p.m. before Raw, drew a higher rating than Raw. The only major sports competition was an NBA game on TNT that did 1.53 million viewers. There was an hour-to-hour decline in viewing, although not big. Still, any decline at all would be amazing considering the Undertaker/HHH segment and the John Cena interview about Rock, along with the Battle Royal were all hour two.

The one thing notable the past two weeks is a different approach to television based on the changing patterns. The WWEís usual m.o. for Raw has been to build to what in theory is the strongest segment and put it on last, when viewership would be the highest. I donít think anyone expected the last two weeks that the Shawn Michaels/HHH and Undertaker/HHH segments wouldnít be the ones that had the most interest. But both were put on at 10 p.m., clearly with the idea the audience would drop when the show went on, and even with the inherent advantage the overrun has, they seem to feel 10 p.m. is the strongest time slot.

In the segment-by-segment, there was interest at the start, opening with a 3.58 first quarter which was the Cena/Eve Torres segment, but thatís probably more due to the fallout of the Chamber show. Sheamus vs. Mark Henry lost 486,000 viewers, which also included a backstage segment with John Laurinaitis, Teddy Long and David Otunga. R-Truth & Kofi Kingston vs. Primo & Epico and the Ron Simmons Hall of Fame announcement gained 71,000 viewers. Otunga vs. Ezekiel Jackson with Laurinaitis and Long in the corners lost 314,000 viewers. To show what carried the show, the Undertaker/HHH in-ring segment gained 1,122,000 viewers, the best 10 p.m. quarter gain in probably a year or more, doing a 3.85 quarter. Of course, when that segment was over, they were gone and Daniel Bryan vs. Santino Marella lost 932,000 viewers. Kelly Kelly & Aksana vs. Bella Twins and Cena promo on Rock lost another 480,000 viewers. So the great Cena promo only did a 2.86 quarter. The Battle Royal in the overrun gained 601,000 viewers to a 3.31 overrun.

In comparing the two key segments, and again, keep in mind the overrun has a huge advantage because people tuning in for the next show start coming in at 11 p.m. and had nine minutes to build, with Male teens, the Undertaker segment went from 2.7 to 3.5 while the Battle Royal went from 2.3 to 2.9. With Males 18-49, the Undertaker segment went from 2.7 to 3.5 and the Battle Royal went from 2.7 to 3.1 With teenage girls, the Undertaker segment went from 1.5 to 1.7 and the Battle Royal from 1.1 to 1.3, and with Women 18-49 the Undertaker segment went from 1.1 to 1.3 and the Battle Royal from 1.1 to 1.1.
THISWEEK
Quote:
Raw on 2/27 featuring the return of The Rock did a disappointing 3.14 rating and 4.64 million viewers. The rating was actually down from the previous week, although viewers were basically identical.

In the demos, Teenage boys did a 2.7 (down 4% from last week), Males 18-49 did a 2.8 (down 3%), Teenage girls did a 1.1 (down 8%), and Women 18-49 did a 1.2 (up 9%). The show was third for the night on cable. The show did 67.3% male viewers.

In the segment-by-segment, the C.M. Punk and Chris Jericho dueling promo did a 3.22 opening quarter. Punk vs. Daniel Bryan lost 289,000 viewers. The HHH/Undertaker video package gained 526,000 viewers and did a 3.38, which is excellent because video packages to build matches usually lose viewers and are considered more necessary evils to ratings. Kelly Kelly vs. Nikki Bella lost 816,000 viewers. John Cena vs. The Miz gained 388,000 viewers, which is weak for the top of the hour, doing only a 3.09. Primo & Epico vs. Jack Swagger & Dolph Ziggler vs. R-Truth & Kofi Kingston lost 221,000 viewers. The Eve Torres interview gained 225,000 viewers. Big Show & Sheamus vs. Cody Rhodes & Mark Henry and Rhodes showing the Floyd Mayweather-Show clips gained 3,000 viewers. And as noted before, the Rockís promo pre-Cena gained 643,000 viewers to a to a 3.53, which is nothing remarkable for the overrun. And the Cena promo and him leaving and Rock finishing up lost 349,000 viewers and the show finished at a 3.30, which has to be considered a surprise.

Another interesting note regarding the rating is that on 2/20, NCIS that preceded Raw did 4.65 million viewers, and on 2/27 it did 3.30 million viewers. The Daytona race was the difference, so the idea itís a non-factor wasnít the case with NCIS. Historically, because major auto races arenít on Monday nights, there is no history of a major race hurting prime time ratings. There was a correlation in the 80s when TBS wrestling followed races (ratings were up, sometimes a lot, but the theory always was that Southern style wrestling and NASCAR had the big crossover but WWF and NASCAR didnít) and went against races (ratings were down).

Holy 10pm gain lol. Now you see, this is what myself and people like DesoRow are talking about when we speak of the importance of having a legitimate draw(s) to put in this all important holding spot. I can't remember the last time they had a gain this big for the 10pm time slot and it's all down to the fact that they haven't had anybody to put in it for so long. That's highly impressive and ever since this whole thing started, the HHH/Taker/HBK segments have been building viewers every week. However, practically everybody left when that segment was over which is the crux of WWE's problem right now and one I really don't see a solution for other than the real creation of true stars. The other thing to note here is that Cena's promo lost viewers and not just some but almost half a million. That's pretty shit and I don't know what the explanation for it is. Maybe the divas match beforehand is the cause, I don't know.

Here comes the goodies lol. So the opener didn't do as well as originally thought but that's still a good number considering those involved. I only see them building upon that from here. The HHH/Taker video packages gaining that many viewers is just fucking insane. It actually gained more viewers and had a higher quarter than the Punk/Jericho stuff, than Cena/Miz at the 10pm slot and is only behind Rock in terms numbers drawn. Throw on the fact that it wasn't even a new video lol and I really don't know how to explain it. Legit insane. Eve's promo gained viewers. I think the last time a Divas segment gained viewers involved Kharma. Note to WWE, KEEP FUCKING PUSHING THIS GIRL! People are clearly interested. And now to the all important overrun. I just don't really know what to say about this tbh. An overrun featuring Rock's return to Raw gained just 600,000k? Further than that, it actually lost over half of that gain as time went on. Fucking hell. These numbers are wack and I don't know what else to say other than people don't want to see him peddling twitter trends and chants. They want to see him actually doing something meaningful. From all accounts, if HHH/Taker were on this show I think it would have done a lot better. Having them on seems to be a guarantee of at least an extra 700,000 viewers. That would have added a nice bump to the shows overall.

Anyways, I expect the shit to hit the fan once people get wind of this lol. Incoming OMGZ DA ROCK CNT DRAW DURRRRR party in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.....
