Segment Breakdown
Source Wrestling Observer Newsletter

Quote:
Raw on 3/12 did a 3.29 rating and 4.84 million viewers. The increase may have been due to the lack of cable competition, as the usual History Channel shows that beat Raw were in reruns, although an NBA game on ESPN did 3.03 million viewers. Not only was Raw the highest rated program, but its NCIS rerun lead-in was No. 2 (3.79 million viewers).

The audience was 67.2% male. In the demos, Male teens did a 2.5 (Up 14% from last week), Men 18-49 did a 3.1 (identical to last week), Girl teens did a 1.3 (up 30%), and Women 18-49 did a 1.3 (up 18%). The show also did better in the second hour, which has been a rarity of late, largely due to the Undertaker-Michaels segment.

In the segment-by-segment, Sheamus vs. Ziggler lost 6,000 viewers coming off a John Cena rap open. Usually the second segment of Raw loses several hundred thousand, so that’s a very good number.

Mark Henry & David Otunga vs. Santino Marella in a handicap match gained 225,000 viewers, which is a good sign for the Laurinaitis-Long program since that was the focus of the segment.

Brodus Clay vs. Jinder Mahal lost 276,000 viewers.

The Undertaker-Michaels in-ring segment gained 869,000 viewers to a 3.73 quarter, the best quarter on the show in several weeks.

C.M. Punk vs. Miz then lost 888,000 viewers, which is the biggest drop segment in a long time.

Randy Orton vs. Jack Swagger gained 58,000 viewers.

And the final segment with The Rock concert gained 509,000 viewers, which is below average gain for an overrun and did a 3.51 quarter.

The final segment was huge in Males 18-49, however, growing from a 3.1 to a 3.8. For teen males it went from 2.3 to 2.7. Teen girls for the Rock concert stayed at 1.1. Women 18-49 went from 1.3 to 1.4.

The Undertaker-HHH feud seems to be hot with people that don't seem to watch much of Raw. The past few weeks it's been several hundred thousand people tuning in to see their segments, and then tuning out once those segments are finished. I don't know what the WWE can do to make them stay.

No surprise there since DB was in that segment.

1) GREAT number for Taker/HBK. What makes it even better is the fact from the looks of it, they weren't even experiencing their usual losses in the first hour. I mean Sheamus/Ziggler losing only 6,000, followed by a 200,000 plus gain, despite the 200,000+ loss after that, really shows that Taker/HBK took the normally high start and added even more to that. So overall the angle is paying off, and as it should. It's a very well written angle and that alone would give it good bumps. Add in the fact that we're dealing with two very highly proven draws in that segment in Taker and HBK, and they're getting great numbers for it week after week. Doesn't matter if the combination is Taker/HBK, Taker/HHH, or HBK/HHH, the program is always pulling in the goods. Next week if I'm not mistaken will have all three of them together, so it will be interesting to see what happens then.

2) Punk/Miz losing 888,000 viewers, even after a nearly equal gain in the previous quarter is NEVER good under any circumstance. It's a terrible drop even in that spot, but especially bad considering the WWE Champ was in it and I assume that timeslot also has the Jericho portion. This all being said, the fact is it was in a random quarter hour, and CM Punk MATCHES have never drawn well. However if next week Punk and Jericho have a segment after what Jericho's promo on Raw, and it doesn't draw in viewers, then that will be a bad sign.

3) Rock's concert gaining only 509,000 viewers is terrible by Rock standards. BUT, this proves a point. Taker and HBK certainly aren't the draws Rock is, but their segment soared while Rock's didn't have anywhere near the gain even in a better spot for gains on the show. What this shows is that rather than just solely relying on the drawing power of Rock (and Cena), they need to give the fans a reason to care about the feud, the segments, etc. I'm sure people knew Rock was just going to rip on Cena through song and figured there wasn't much a reason to watch. The feud has become predictable and uninteresting. Right now it literally is only on name value that the match is the main event, because the build up and numbers even have been underwhelming (though not necessarily "bad").

Overall there weren't as many drops as usual I believe which is a good sign. Don't know what the opening started with though.

Seems like 10 PM slot is doing really good. I dont know if its solely because of the starpower Taker/HHH/HBK involved or is it a new pattern in viewership. One way to find out would be to have Taker/HHH close the show once and put Rock/Cena at the top of the hour.

If its truly because of the Starpower, then its a brilliant move by WWE to have Taker as a special attraction instead of appearing on every show, which is why i presume, the Rock is not drawing big numbers as he used to. He's become a everyday superstar now and the repetitive promos are not helping either.

And Big fucking LOL @ Punk/Miz. There's your future of WWE folks.

Teddy Long = Ratingz.

From now on Daniel Bryan should only cut promos from the skybox.

Especially during Sheamus' matches so at least something interesting would be happening.

I'm glad Punk/Miz lost that many viewers. How is it not obvious to them by now that nobody wants to see this awful match? These two together never do good numbers. But the blame shouldn't be entirely put on them, to be fair. They weren't even the majority of the quarter. They had about five minutes of the quarter with the Jericho promo starting at 10:30. Jus' sayin'.

Once again the Rock promo does an incredibly underwhelming number and I really don't know why. It's as if nobody even cares about him. The Trips/Taker/HBK angle is clearly doing awesome. Great news.

Who would have thought Taker Triple H would be the only thing saving the show right now?

There's not a single person on this board that wanted to see this rematch, and it's really become the life of the show.

Hell in the Cell. Old school intensity. You have to love how it's being booked.

WWE should be taking note of this. Triple H Rock, Cena Taker at Mania next year.
