If you're talking WRESTLING in general, then yeah. WCW was getting pretty strong ratings in 1999 as well, so both WWE/WCW and wrestling in general had between 8-10 million people watching regularly on Monday.
But 1 thing about the WWE/WCW ratings...how many were same viewers?

EX-If someone tunes in to watch WWE from 9-9:09pm and then WCW from 9:10-9:15pm, wouldn't that count for quarter hours on both shows?

And another thing about tv ratings, what if multiple people watch a show in the same house? WWE being a family show today, that could mean 2-3 people watch Raw in a single house.

3.8 rating for next week. Let's not forget, it's three hours long. There are going to be dips.

Having said that, there hasn't been a "special" episode of anything from WWE this well-hyped in so long...

Nevertheless, still difficult to see a complete hour of Raw average a 4.0 rating or whatever.

It's possible because of all of the Monday night TV shows on cable, like on TNT and whatnot, will contribute to making viewership numbers attain higher ratings.

Hmmmm...

Can you imagine how much fun it would be to book the 1,000th episode of Raw? It's probably the one episode of Raw in years that has been given planning and preparation and thought about a month in advance. This is one they need to hit out of the park. This week's Raw was excellent, I thought; a bit light on wrestling content, perhaps, but nevertheless excellent. We'll see about next week.

Or on the other side of that....it could just be booked like another episode of Raw.


"Stone Cold and Rock are booked for Raw 1000,what do we do with them?"
"Put them in a 5 minute promo, have Jinder Mahal come out, both guys hit their finisher on him,and then go to commercial break"

"How do we end Raw 1000?"
"Cena wins WWE title, celebrates, the entire roster comes to the stage, they thank the fans, and Raw is done"

There's so many factors now a days, that these ratings are never completely accuarate. Like you said, there's far too many things to consider now a days.

http://www.wrestlingforum.com/classi...m-viewers.html

6.3 rating got like 4.8M viewers.

If things were done the same today, WWE would be averaging ratings in the 6's as well.

In order to get 4 ratings today, Raw would need almost 6M viewers, so it's like the inverse of what it used to be.
You said the same thing there and even AFTER people explained it to you, you say it again? No. 4.8 is **households**, not actual viewers.

As for 5.0 or even 4.0+ overall. Not happening. The roster is WOAT and the product is cold as hell. They almost did a 5.0 for The Rock's segment in Chicago last year and they actually did 4.1 for the second hour that night. You're not going to see something like that now because back then you had the astronomical buzz from Rock's presence in the wrestling industry again that made the business hot for 2 months.

3.6 for next week. Doubt they will do 3.8 with three hours.

Yeah, 3.6 sounds right, actually. 3.8 for the final two hours. 3.6 overall.

I say 3.7 to be safe lol. I expect a few segments to do big numbers though and get at or around the 4.0 mark, most likely Rock and the title match. Depending on what happens in Lesnar/HHH, that might hit up there too. But yeah, 3.7 overall makes the most sense to me.

Older fans are bound to tune in for the show.
yeah but a 5 or 6 in 1998 is not equal to a 5 or 6 in 2012, in 1999 a 5.5 was roughly equal to 5.7 million viewers average (depending on what competition was opposite), trump raw did 6.8 million viewers average (including a second hour of 7.9 million viewers, one of top 3-5 most watched raw hours ever) in 2009 but that show only did a 4.5 rating

If Charlie Sheen tweets, it could break 4.0.
