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

Regardless of how poor last night's ratings were, I can't see RAW moving back to two hours in a while. It's still getting some of the highest ratings on the USA network. Remember that the network wanted the three hour move.

With that said, I enjoyed the last few RAWs, but I do agree that all the material in a three hour show can easily be fit into a strong two hour show.

So does Vince's panic mode go into effect and Punk loses the title to Cena this Sunday or will they wait until NOTC and have Cena take the belt off Punk then as many expect?

How much do we want to bet that in about 6 weeks Cole is gonna get on the headset and say:

"WWE has listened to you, the WWE universe, and we have some history breaking news! Starting next week we are going to be airing our show from 9pm-11pm in a brand new, 2 hour format. I can't wait, King."

Just like TNA humbly did when their switch to Monday nights didn't quite work out.



Shield 2.0, Brah!

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

how anyone can watch 3 hours live needs to be given a gold medal, i can barely watch it even with dvr skipping over 90% of it

not even dvr worthy, in fact the only reason why they got a 2.8 is there name power, the name power and long history of raw on monday nights is the only reason why the rating hoovers at 3.0

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

hopefully this wakes them up, but probably not

-they just got a 2.8 rating going into there biggest ppv of the year not called wrestlemania
-they are still relying on non full time aging stars from past like rock/taker/hhh/hbk/lesnar
-cena owns everyone for 7 years, nobody has a chance to really shine besides him
-big slow is main eventing in 2012 nuff said
-monday night football is starting up VERY soon
-they just went 3 hours so to go back to 2 hours is not happening until early 2013 earliest
-a large part of the roster is pissed about pay, vince pokes fun at them last night
-linda just won some race today so thats not going away anytime soon

i just hope the ratings go low, real low, south of 2.5, then maybe that will be the wake up call vince needs, i think even vince won't take a 2.5 rating

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

Pretty sure Vince is too senile to realize no one wants to really sit through a recap-heavy, social network whoring 3 hour "sports entertainment" show. Oh wait...

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

I'm not one to argue about ratings, but even I realize that a sub 3.0 rating is PITIFUL, ESPECIALLY for a go home show.


Cena WILL win at Summerslam. No fucking question about that now.

I see this happening EXACTLY the way you described it.

I was going to come in this thread and say something like this, but never got around to it. If WWE thinks a 2.8 rating is bad now, wait until the fall. In addition, their first hour will be going head to head with MNF and other fall shows. And Lesnar, HHH, Michaels, Rock likely won't be around for at least two months as the next two ppvs are Night of Champions and Hell In A Cell, B-level ppvs none of them really need to be at. Things could be getting rough soon for Raw ratings.

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

No surprise here. Back when the show was still two hours, lots of people predicted that from August to December you would see terrible ratings, and now that the show is 3 hours its only going to be worse. I can't wait to see how lost the WWE are when they can't rely on big names like Rock and Lesnar to drum up interest in their product.
