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

Horrendous rating for the go home show. But you still don't know about the million buys because they're doing different promotion. The Rock/Cena special did 2 million viewers which is good, they need to sell 300k with their promotion on youtube and this special on different channels. The product is so cold, worst roster of all time but million buys is still possible.

The roster needs a better direction. Rocks appearances currently have not been a ratings remedy to the mediocre storylines, so IMO it is that people are not interested in the material of the feuds.

But aren't they shooting for 1.3 million buys? I seem to recall that being the number Meltzer said. If so, I don't know, maybe I guess, but I think they're going to be disappointed.

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

When Rock came back last year he was a big special attraction. He was there twice before Mania.

But he almost like a regular guy now. He's been on RAW more times than the Undertaker has been in the last year than Taker has in 2.

The attraction wears off after a while him being there week in week out. Just a fact.

If Steve Austin was to get into a program with anyone and was there for like 6 weeks straight it would be the same. His special attraction would wear off.

I don't know where Meltzer got the 1.3 million number from but there is no way they get that high, I'll be quite surprised if they even top 1 million


IT WAS JUST BANTER

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

WWE has stated they want this Mania to break the record for most buys which is 1.2 million from WM 23
So that is where the number comes from

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

Aside from Rock/Cena, I think you guys are forgetting Triple H/Taker/Shawn as well. Rock/Cena may not do 1 mill+ at this point, but with a Hell In A Cell on the card involving 3 of the biggest stars of all time? That's 1 mill+ easy.

And if WWE can't manage to get ATLEAST 1.1 mill+ with this card, then they're in some serious trouble for the future Mania's.

Segment Breakdown
Wrestling Observer Newsletter
Quote:
Raw on 3/26 did a 3.05 rating and 4.44 million viewers, numbers along the lines of most of the shows in the last few months, but a number that has to be disappointing as the final show leading into WrestleMania. Raw was the highest rated show on cable for the night. There was no other major sports competition and The History Channel shows that usually beat Raw were in reruns.

Last year’s WrestleMania go-home show which featured Rock and Cena in the key angle did a 3.84 rating and 5.89 million viewers, so a 21% decline in ratings and a 25% decline in total viewers.

The audience was 66.9% male. In the key demos, Male teens did a 2.3 (down 4% from last week), Males 18-49 did a 2.7 (same as last week), Female teens did a 0.9 (down 10%) and Women 18-49 did a 1.3 (up 18%).

In the segment-by-segment, Randy Orton & Sheamus vs. Daniel Bryan & Kane gained 239,000 viewers in a segment that usually doesn’t do well.

Santino Marella vs. David Otunga and the Undertaker/HHH/Shawn Michaels vignette lost 32,000 viewers.

Eve Torres vs. Kelly Kelly lost 246,000 viewers.

The C.M. Punk vs. Christian angle, Chris Jericho interview and Brodus Clay vs. Curt Hawkins in the top of the hour segment gained 132,000 viewers to a 2.96 rating which is terrible for the 10 p.m. quarter.

Big Show vs. Primo lost 104,000 viewers.

Mark Henry vs. Great Khali and the Team Teddy vs. Team Johnny complete teams angle gained 362,000 viewers which is very good.

The Rock/Cena show close gained 626,000 viewers which is again nothing special for the overrun, closing at a 3.57.

As far as the final segment growth, Teen boys went from 2.3 to 2.6, Teen girls from 1.1 to 1.0, Males 18-49 from 2.8 to 3.5 and Women 18-49 from 1.2 to 1.5
DVR NUMBERS WHY NOT
Quote:
The 3/5 episode of Raw did 477,000 homes watching on tape or DVR, or about 13% of total viewers. That was the second week of Rock’s return and it may have been the largest (and if not, was close to the largest) number of DVR viewers for an episode of Raw in history. Last year, Rock saw DVR/tape viewership nearly double when he came back, but ratings themselves also went way up. This is only one week and the show he returned at was at normal levels, so it will be interesting to see if this ends up being the case for the rest of the pre-Mania run

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

A minor angle like the Teddy/Johnny thing doing good is great news. Good for the opening tag match as well. The 10 quarter did pretty bad, but that quarter always does bad when there's a commercial in the middle of it. Punk/Christian angle had like what, 3 minutes of that quarter? With the rest being a commercial and useless Brodus Clay. And again, Cena/Rock does extremely underwhelming. Seriously, what the hell? I shouldn't be too surprised since the promos are complete trash every week, but the shock of the angle doing bad is still there.

Overall very meh numbers.






best.
