Guys, it's not fair to blame the bad ratings on really bad Kane horror movie shenanigans. Not when the staggering success of See No Evil is so fresh in our minds.

Ah got to love people on here trying to run damage control. It is down basically half a million in a week but people say it is the same....When you are down 20% how is that the same? When "Pawn Stars" beats you thats when you know your in trouble....

Just further evidence that WWE needs to shake things up or 2012 will be a very bad year for them.

I think Raw should try to emulate SD. Smackdown gets less viewers, but the difference is not very big, you have to take in account the lack of stars, hype (no epic returns/debuts on SD) and the fact that it's on Friday and not live. Despite all of this they only get a million or so less viewers (at least during the Henry reign, not sure about the recent ratings since Bryan took over but I can't imagine them dropping too much). Imo Smackdown is just the better written show, if it was treated like the A show and was broadcasted during the week it would easily go toe to toe with Raw, and probably outdraw it.

The storylines are more basic but also have twists that actually make sense (Bryan/Big Show/Henry situation, Drew Mac beeing back on SD etc), it's not a Russo like clusterfuck, everyone gets some sort of push there and the matches are FAR more entertaining due to having much more time. It isn't a perfect show, as I said it lacks the over the top storylines and big time feel, but given the ressources they have they make the best out of it. Raw on the other hand has all the ressources they have but the show seems like style over substance nowadays, they have the over the topness but lack most other things. There might be a good RAW once in a while but it's far from consistent and you can only grow a fanbase by putting on a consistent good product (see SD as a positive, or TNA as a negative example).

I honestly believe a lot of it is to with the commentary (or in easier terms, simply Michael Cole). He has a genuinely annoying voice and it has only gotten worse since his heel turn 2 years ago. Surely that has to be some sort of a factor in turning away viewers. I know if I want to watch a TV show I don't want to have a helluva annoying sound in the background (I don't mind Cole as i'm use to him but i'm sure it could potentially draw away casuals).

Punk is not a established main eventer yet. Its stupid to argue he should be the top draw, he cant be but he is trying, WWE is trying to make him that guy.

The problem is the shit Storyline cena is involved in. As per the popular opinion John cena is carrying RAW with his starpower but the truth is he doesnt draw as he used to. 2011 his drawing ability has taken a huge hit because of status quo, saved only by the return of the ROCK. But they are damaging whatever left of his drawing power by putting him in these comedy crap with ryder and shit storyline with Kane. I dont know what moron is booking this crap.

John cena needs to be in a better storyline that interests people, simple as that. I have no problem with punk dropping the title to cena again, if need be. Build punk to that level and then have him go over Cena clean. They did that with Orton before, why not do it with punk? Both these guys need to be protected, Punk shouldnt become irrelevant once he drops the title.

I like how people joke about Russo yet when he showed up in WCW to the moment he got fired a couple of months later, ratings jumped almost a point in that period.

You can't compare Russo to Punk.

Viewership was down 400,000 thru out. Which means alot of those people didn't even tune into the show, period.

Hard to blame Kane, Cena, Punk, Jericho or whoever if somebody never turned it on from the beginning.
