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

Last year MAY 16, 2011 did only 3.08 for the whole show even without the NBA play-offs.


Quote:
WWE Raw on Monday, May 16 scored a 3.08 rating, down one-tenth of a ratings point from last week’s show.

Raw also declined to an average of 4.7 million viewers. There was no competition from the NBA Playoffs on Monday night, which did not lead to a boost for Raw. It did allow Raw to rank #1 on cable TV in terms of overall viewers.

The overall rating was the lowest since January when WWE faced college football competition. The average viewership figure is the first time WWE hasn’t touched 5.0 million viewers since February.

The roster is too weak and untalented and the product is too cold and bland. WWE is all about the TV business.
Can you post the Rating breakdown for May 16, 2011 Show?

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

Kofi Kingston vs. CM Punk lost 97,000 viewers from the opener while Kelly Kelly vs. Brie Bella and Kharma's appearance gained 333,000 viewers. There seems to be a trend of Diva segments doing well in the ratings since Kharma's arrival.

Alberto Del Rio vs. Rey Mysterio gained 1,500 viewers, which isn't good for the 10pm timeslot. Jerry Lawler and Michael Cole's contract signing lost 70,000 viewers while Kane & Big Show vs. Nexus lost 165,000 more viewers.

The main event of John Cena vs. Jack Swagger and The Miz's post-match attack gained 560,000 viewers, bringing the overrun to a 3.40. This less than usual for RAW's overruns.

2.9? A well-earned failure. Raw was recap-heavy, dragged out everything, and didn't even build much towards the PPV.

Since they're already looking past this PPV, maybe their plans will provide better television in the next cycle. One certainly hopes.

1,500 viewers.

That's priceless.

The problem with WWE booking is that they don't know what to do and are confused. Take the build-up for Survivor Series last year which had disappointing buyrates. They let Cena take out The Miz and R-Truth on his own even though the storyline being build was that they are too much for him to handle on his own and that's why he was seeking The Rock for help. The dirt-sheets reported that the reason for that was because they didn't want Cena to be owned three weeks in a row but that's completely senseless. Cena was destroyed by Miz four weeks in a row on the road to WM27 and it made fans who buy into the face/heel thing more eager for WM27 to see Cena get his revenge on Miz (which he didn't but that's another story). That's also good example on how you build the good vs bad story which WWE are in love with today. One minute they cater towards the 'smarks' then another they ruin their long-term booking to keep the kids happy for a week.

That's how I've always seen it.

This show deserved the terrible number it got, it was a terrible show.

So Kharma was drawing ratings in her short stint before she got pregnant? Good thing they had Layla return and win the belt instead of Kharma.

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

It's scary to think where they would be if it wasn't for The Rock and Brock drawing in a little interest. I know for a fact that I've stopped watching once I started noticing that the shows where becoming mediocre again.

Who knows but you can bet your ass they're going to trot out everyone they can: The Rock, Steve Austin, Batista, The Undertaker, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Jericho, Jerry Lawler...

I don't even want to think of what the main event(s) at Wrestlemania will be next year.
