Any way you spin it, whether it's a good gain or not, the normal gain for the 10pm timeslot the last several months is in the 100k-300k range when Taker/HBK/HHH aren't involved. It doesn't make the gain good, but it's not Punk or Henry's fault, it's just the way viewership patterns have changed. At the same time, the overall viewership number/rating for that slot seems to be one of the best of the night, so I'd consider the overall number good for Punk/Henry, even if the gain wasn't... if that makes any sense.

Rock starting out with a 3.6 after Mania isn't great, but much like what I said above the overall number is still one of the strongest numbers of the show, so it's all good. As mentioned by (I believe) Starbuck, it's nice to see the drops not anything too dramatic and that people were sticking around. Cena's promo/Lesnar's return gaining a million viewers is excellent. Lets see what happens next week with the numbers.

For anyone wondering, having done a quick bit of calculations, Brock Lesnar's return and the final segment with John Cena had ~5.7 million viewers.

Like Starbuck and others have said Cena possibly losing his shit = RATINGS. And when (if) he finally snaps and goes full heel it could be the thing that thrwos the WWe on its head and gives it the "spark" it needs.

Cena won't turn heel. Vince gets alot of money from the merchandise sales he gets from the kids and the women.

Do you really think Vince will risk losing money which he can if the heel turn won't be sucessfull?

In 2010 it was hundred and million something WWE earned by John Cena.

And WWE has the spark it needs by Brock Lesnar, do you know how many viewers it got on youtube the john cena and Brock thing? It got many.

Brock was in the mainevent in the highest grossing ufc ppv.

If WWE used Brock in the right way, WWE will get more popular without a Cena heel turn.

Last year the HHH promo in the opening segment did 3.7 in a show that did 3.8 overall so to open with a 3.6 in a show that did 3.4 is big, I'm sure they opened a lot less for the first quarter with the Ace and then gained huge during the Rock promo. Rock's promo was more than the 15 minutes quarter so he was probably responsible for the strong second quarter and the fact that they didn't lose 800k or something like that.

Henry/Punk was a terrible gain for the top of the hour but expected, Henry is a big TV draw but he needs to work with a star to do it, I hope to see him more on RAW, I don't know if there's a draft or not.

Lesnar WASN'T a factor in that 3.9, nobody knew he was going to be there, they did big gain for the "Cena calling out The Rock" concept as a way to end the feud, same thing happened the night after SVS when they did the same thing with Cena's segment and teaser with Rock. Next week should be the test for Brock, to see if he's the big, rare game-changer like Rock was in 2011 to every aspect of business, from house show business to ratings.

Which RAW show are you talking about here?

Ace opening the show was 2:20 minutes. I dont think that affected the opening seg with the rock.

Agreed on Henry, The guy is legit.

Not sure if this right. Lesnar is a big name. Cena calling out the rock would have gained a good amount of viewers but Lesnar's return must have spiked the overrun numbers to a million.

If its a test, then its an unfair one because The rock returned feb 2011, MANIA season. And every other week, they were bringing back the big names like taker,hhh,austin,jbl etc... not to mention John cena going back to his old gimmick for the first time in years.

The Rock vs Cena, a 10yr dream match, was the True game changer for 2011. Pretty sure Lesnar alone, post mania, wont be able to top that.

Considering the show was actually relatively stable... the 10 slot gain isn't horrible. Seriously, for a while RAW was all over the place with 700000 dips then 500000 gains all over the place. This stayed flat for the most part... those that tuned in didn't really leave. That is the power of a good show though. And if they can continue having shows like this, they'll start seeing not only stable numbers throughout the show, but growth from week to week as people start believing that the WWE might actually be consistent again.

That estimate was a collective guess at how much Cena has drawn throughout his career, not for just one year.

And it was still exaggerated.

Breakdown, note, the increase from Q4 to Q5 is bigger than in the breakdown, otherwise Hour 1 would not make any sense whatsoever. In any event:

Hour 1
Q1 - 3.60 rating / 5.18 million
Q2 - 3.34 rating / 4.88 million
Q3 - 3.34 rating / 4.88 million
Q4 - 3.34 rating / 4.88 million

Hour 2
Q5 - 3.50 rating / 5.16 million
Q6 - 3.30 rating / 4.87 million
Q7 - 3.30 rating / 4.87 million
Q8 - 3.20 rating / 4.72 million
Overrun - 3.90 rating / 5.75 million

I'm almost certain that 3.90 rating for a quarter is the highest since May 2nd last year.
