Considering that USA networks show that'd air at 8pm probably gets like 2M viewers, I think they're more than happy with 4M for Raw from 8-9pm

They needed to do the Lesnar/HHH segment in the overrun last week with Brock attacking HBK, then this week, promoting HHH's response to what Brock did last week.

They gave away a full Big Show/Cena match this week which is the biggest match they can book from the current roster besides Orton/Cena, Show and Cena are the biggest TV draws in the company and this match probably did big. Other than that, Lesnar/HBK/HHH needs to close the program next week. They had almost 7 million potential viewers. An audience that is not going to come back at least until January 2013 if they're able to do the same hype for the 20 years RAW show. Now it's gone in a week, 3.1 is just the foreplay before the comedy against MNF.

We need to hope for catastrophically low numbers so they can go back to 2 hours before 2013.
Good lord, you don't half talk a load of bollocks. The biggest match they can book from this current roster, is Cena/Punk, because Punk has usurped Orton as number two star. I doubt many people care to see Cena and Big Show face off for the millionth time and Show is no bigger a TV draw than Punk. Cena/Orton is no big deal either, due to Orton's stock diminishing considerably, him not being a TV draw, and the fact that he and Cena have barely any in-ring chemistry. Cena/Orton was played out years ago - and it was a load of shite then.

Cena vs a returning heel Orton will by, by far, a bigger match on RAW.

Why would a match we've already seen 100 times before be "by far" bigger?

Because he's returning after 60 (90?) days, a match with Cena would indicate ambiguity in his face/heel status and would generate a lot of interest.

Exactly. Lulz at ANY match involving Orton being some sort of big deal in 2012. Dude got demoted to SD!, and is practically a midcarder.

Or better yet, heel Cena vs face Orton. It was meant to be WM27's main event with Cena turning heel during the Nexus angle. Too bad they pussied out and SuperCena was brought back to life.

If they bother giving Orton some actual angle, he can easily get back on top with Cena as the top two stars.
