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

WWE Raw on Monday, August 20 the night after Summerslam scored a 3.14 rating for all three hours and 3.21 rating for the standard two hours. This was up from a 2.84 rating for all three hours last week and 2.93 rating for the standard two hours.

Despite the overall rating increasing 10 percent, Raw's key demographic ratings were flat or slightly down compared to last week's show.

- Raw averaged 4.48 million viewers, which is okay for the show after Summerslam. By comparison, last year's Raw after Summerslam averaged 5.05 million viewers for a two-hour show.

Raw followed an interesting viewership pattern with 4.35 million first hour viewers, which was easily the most of the three-hour era following Raw 1,000. Raw then peaked with 4.66 million second hour viewers. The third hour dipped to an average of 4.43 million viewers, which was within 100,000 viewers of the new first hour.

It appears viewers tuned in early for the immediate Summerslam fall-out, including Brock Lesnar's farewell, stayed tuned for Shawn Michaels's appearance addressing Triple H's teased retirement, and tuned out without an announced main event for the third hour.

- On cable TV Monday night, Raw ranked #4 in overall viewers behind NFL pre-season football on ESPN, "Pawn Stars" on History Channel, and "Major Crimes" on TNT. Raw also fell behind the season finale of "Love and Hip Atlanta" on VH1 among all adult viewers.

In the key demographics, Raw ranked #2 behind the NFL in adult males. Raw ranked #1 among younger male viewers.

I'd say the overrun did well based on these numbers actually. I guess we'll find out tomorrow lol.

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

The overrun probably did decent, Cena in a main event promo usually does well and they took a long 14 minutes overrun for that segment.

Peak of the show was probably Orton/Del Rio or Lesnar/Heyman.

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

Those ratings compared to last couple of years is scary, especially considering that they now have Lesnar. But honestly this show was crap.

- Lesnar and Heyman just talking with no new angle shot
- No HHH of course and HBK only via sattelite
- No main event.
- Cena same old generic babyface and Punk generic heel again

What I've learned from 540+ pages of this thread:

-CM Punk is a draw.
-CM Punk is not a draw.
-Randy Orton is a draw.
-Randy Orton is not a draw.
-Ratings matter.
-Ratings don't matter.
-Merchandise sales matter.
-Merchandise sales don't matter.
-PPV buys are #1.
-PPV buys are not #1.
-John Cena is the only mega star.
-John Cena is not a maga star. It's only in comparison the rest of the roster.
-Mark Henry is good for ratings.
-Rock316AE has a very good memory.

Yeah, so there's your 540 pages. In one post. You're welcome.

Nah, you missed the parts about John Laurinaitis and The Big Show and AJ and Daniel Bryan, and how Laurinaitis was both responsible for drawing in viewers and for turning viewers off, Big Show being a ratings powerhouse but also underwhelming, AJ and Daniel Bryan being draws and yet not being draws, either, as well as Rock losing viewers, Rock being the biggest star of all time and Rock being the only reason WWE is still alive at this point. And Triple H and Undertaker and Shawn Michaels being mixed together = ratings juggernaut. Oh, and my point that Stephanie = ratings. There ya go.
