Melzter had already said that it could be less than the 1.3million or something like that.
1.25 still the same thing.

It could be slightly lower than 1.3 or slightly higher. We will just have to wait and see.

But it's already the biggest grossing wrestling event in history. Huge success.

The 10:00 pm segment started up with Cole and Lawler throwing us to a video package about the PPV the night before, then Orton came out around 10:08/10:09 or somewhere like that, and they went to break with Cole chirping, "Another Beat the Clock challenge match! Orton's opponent: Jack Swagger!" Commercial break (and a pretty long one, if I remember correctly). Match didn't really start until about 10:14 or so.

When Cole announced it was going to be Swagger a second before going to a commercial break, I was sure the number for the segment would be lousy. The audience doesn't care about Swagger because WWE's given nobody a single reason to for about a whole year now (almost humorously, he actually did benefit from being involved in the Cole/Lawler build-up last year, as he was in many of the most-watched segments on The Road to Wrestlemania).

Having said that, though, the last Miz/Punk match was in the 10:15-10:30 quarter hour, and based on the booking of both men as well as WWE whipping that horse over and over (they wrestled each other about ten times or so on Raw live for free between the end of August and Wrestlemania), it was about as predictable an outcome as Swagger/Orton. Michaels and Undertaker kicked off Hour 2 that night with a gain of 869,000 and lo and behold, following a lengthy commercial break the segment after that lost 888,000. That's still a bad number and everything but there is the context to consider, in both of these circumstances (Miz/Punk also had a fairly long commercial break in the middle of it, too).

If we are talking huge buyrates, the Floyd Mayweather/Miguel Cotto fight is expected to break every record in PPV history or at worse, be the second biggest. Probably the first boxing fight I'm going to watch in many years, the staredown alone here is selling the PPV:

5:50


And was awesome to hear Buffer(Michael, not Bruce)again...WWE need to bring him for a WM main event one time like WCW did, imagine him announcing Rock and Brock in New York, huge hype.

Default Are ratings important in 2012?

In the times of DVRs and Youtube, are ratings really important in 2012? Does it still dictate the way the product is going to go? Are "the ratings" an excuse for not giving certain guys a chance and getting pushes

It was as just as important back in 1995/1996/1997 when there were also DVRs and Youtubes, so they pretty much got away with those 1.9's, 2.6's, 2.4's........oh wait

For the WWE office the ratings are still very important because the higher rating they pull then the more likely the TV networks are going to want WWE on their channel. The more channels want your show, then the more you can charge whoever does end up airing the product because then you force a kind of bidding war.

Now if the ratings were low for Raw then the prospect of having that on a TV network wouldn't be too glamorous and although somebody may give it a try because of it's former glory they'd be less inclined to pay the big money for it.

So then when you put it into practical terms, if a certain guy consistently pulls a low rating and isn't providing with the WWE with much in terms of merchandise sales then they're likely to release him because he's just not worth that much to the company. If they like him then they may re-package him as something else but that's another story.
