Bro, out of all the things you can praise from Impact, the awesome Bully Rays, Kurt Angles, Bobby Roodes, James Storms, AJs etc. You choose to praise Claire Lynch? Don't get me wrong, Impact is the best show by far, with the best roster, best product etc, but Claire Lynch is horrendous, just brutal to watch and if not Daniels saving the segments with her, this would have been a disaster on TV.
I say this week the 9pm probably opened up to about 3.15. The Santino vs Alberto Del Rio match in the first hour last week lost about 260,000 viewers which was a lot.

Actually it was 40k more viewers the Sheamus/Bryan match got. Nothing to make a big deal out of. Just a decent and standard gain. But since it's Orton, he's a failure at drawing whereas if it was Bryan "ZUMG DA GAAWD IZ MR RATINGZZZ!!!!111".

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

Brock Lesnar and Shawn Michaels appearing definitely should've been promoted more. They threw so many recaps on Raw 1001 that I don't even remember them mentioning Lesnar appearing on Raw in San Antonio, as well as Michaels.

I get the vibe looking at the numbers that more and more people DVR Raw and watch it afterwards or watch it on YouTube or something because 3 hours is too much. It's just the vibe I get. Very meh numbers, with no HUGE gain or HUGE loss like other breakdowns have.

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

A segment involving Lesnar, HBK and HHH only did a 3.45? and only gained 250'000?

this angle has no heat. Yes they weren't advertised but still, people and notify other people, they should of done way more then that.

I just don't see why a fanatic would care about buys and ratings. It doesn't affect who is the most entertaining in the business, so why bother arguing over which wrestler draw more or lamenting a .01 drop in the ratings?

I think anytime you have a long match in the final slot it's going to fail, because nobody cares about matches anymore due to WWE training it's viewers that the outcomes don't matter.

How dare you say something like that! Hey John, this jerk is saying you can't punch! Get in here and beat him up!

Still better than Shane McMahons punches on Orton. Good Lord that traumatized me.

Ratings and buys are some of the closest thing to a confirmation the company has in regards to who is seen as the "most entertaining."

Granted, I agree that the melancholic tone of some of these posts are ridiculously overwrought.

And why are people over Orton's case in this instance? Would these be the same patrons of the D-Bry, CM Punk fanbases by any chance?

Some people like following the pitch and roll of the business and enjoy seeing what works and what doesn't. I'll agree that taking ratings as dogma is a mistake and I'm not fond of the idea that you should ignore live reactions, but ratings do give you good feedback on how the company is reaching people. It's the same as watching box office results and seeing why "Batman The Dark Knight Rises" has been a disappointment (despite earning a shitton of money) versus why its predecessors were considered such successes. It's an interesting thing to talk about, provided you understand the limitations of your data, and that there are things you aren't seeing.
