It got a 6.7 rating. The week before was the RAW IS OWEN episode and that had a 7.2 rating!

Even crazier, the May 10th episode did 8.1!

If WWE does these three things i will stop complaining and be happy with the product
Definitely with you on the first 2, not sure blood has much to do with the ratings (although I liked involved in the product to a certain extent) But just changing to a TV 14 rating and not changing the booking or stroylines isn't really going to help anything.

But I do agree that hopefully the steadily declining ratings (although like i have said before there are some many other reasons for this just besides the state of the product) will eventually show them that the current way they are presenting their product is not working real well.

Better booking is a must, tbh.

January 2nd, 2012 - Breakdown
Q1 - 3.36 rating / 4.77 million
Q2 - 3.13 rating / 4.44 million
Q3 - 3.30 rating / 4.68 million
Q4 - 3.00 rating / 4.25 million
Q5 + Q6 3.08 rating / 4.43 million
Q7 - 3.02 rating / 4.35 million
Q8 + OR - 3.33 rating / 4.73 million

Not an atrocious breakdown by any means, just disappointing with no bump at all for Jericho's segment. You can't blame his actions once he had come out, the audience didn't predict he was going to do that, so it's all a bit odd. But the numbers do not lie.

January 9th, 2012 - Breakdown
Q1 - 3.07 rating / 4.25 million
Q2 - 2.90 rating / 4.01 million
Q3 - 2.97 rating / 4.11 million
Q4 - 2.91 rating / 4.03 million
Q5 - 2.93 rating / 4.15 million
Q6 - 2.80 rating / 3.96 million
Q7 - 2.71 rating / 3.83 million
Q8 - 2.39 rating / 3.29 million
OR - 2.84 rating / 3.93 million

I think this is more alarming than atrocious. The first thing I'd point to is Chris Jericho's segment under 4 million viewers. It feels as if their work from the "It Begins" promos has been undone or they have gone in entirely the wrong direction. Jericho's angle doesn't get people talking about the angle in a positive light, it gets people talking in a negative light. His segment also doesn't bring old fans which may be concerning. Okay, he wasn't the biggest draw, but I think *some* boost must have been expected. But there was no twist from his angle last week, hell, some people may have just thought it was a one night appearance, which wouldn't surprise me.

The real concern, however, is Q8. RAW should never be recording quarter ratings of 3.3 million unless:

a) it is a holiday (it wasn't)
b) it is on a different channel or timeslot (it wasn't)
c) it is the first hour of a three hour RAW (it wasn't)

Q8 was on from 22:45 to 23:00 which was a Royal Rumble rebound, two commercials and the Kane/Ryder/Eve stuff. So there was only about 5 minutes of action in a 15-minute quarter. But that is no excuse for the extremely poor quarter hour, otherwise you may as well go through the other eight quarters and find the filler material.

Yes but the 5 minutes of action was suppose to be diva's match remember? I dont think we can blame ryder or kane on this. People probably tuned in after commercial, saw Eve torres make her entrance and thought its going to be Divas match, so decided to change channel or a "Piss break".

WWE is stupid for running that Kane-Ryder injury/Brawl angle before the divas match.

Jericho losing viewers again is just horrible. There's no other way to describe it really. I understand that the overall show is shitty and that the quarter hours he's been given are also a bit odd but this is still a really bad reflection on him. Rock has appeared in Q2 and had a ridiculous gain in a segment that usually loses viewers. Yes I know he's the Rock but still. HHH has also appeared during a random quarter when the shows were also pretty shitty and it gained viewers too. The pattern that we all established a while back was that people were tuning in for the big stars to see what they were doing no matter what and then leaving again in the middle of the show before coming back at the end again. Nobody seems to be tuning in for Jericho at all, not even to see him and then leave when his part is done. After all that hype and.....nothing. It's just not good.

As for the overall breakdown, they flat out suck. But since MNF is done with I suspect that we'll see the viewership bump we were expecting for Jan 2nd next week. Maybe it's just going to come 2 weeks too late is all. If things haven't picked up by the end of the month, then it will be cause for concern; firstly because of the impact on Rumble buys and for obvious reasons also.

I think if something like this happened in the opening slot, 10pm slot 9 (Q5), or last slot of the show, then the numbers we're seeing right now would be terrible. The thing is it hasn't been, and I personally think it's been a mistake not putting him there. HHH was at least always in one of those big slots (Q1, Q5, or Q8+OR) so of course it was going to do well (I wouldn't call it random either). Granted he did a lot better than Punk is now, and he's a bigger draw than Jericho, but I think if Jericho came out in one of the big three quarters, he would've at least gotten a good number for it. Stick him in the Q5 slot next week and see what happened. (I wouldn't expect an 800,000+ increase or something great like that, but maybe a good number like 400k-500k plus increase).

The only reason I can think of that they haven't done it yet and instead have put him in these normally losing timeslots is because they wanted people to really keep their eyes on the TV and stay tuned throughout the whole show for Jericho's return. They wanted to get those numbers to increase the last couple of weeks... but since it's been a surprise to see him in those timeslots and people don't want to see the rest of the shit that goes on, I don't think anyone could really get those numbers to increase at least decently nowadays besides a big draw like Rock, Cena, Taker, or HHH.

I say he should be put in one of the big timeslots, a Cena segment should be put in one of those big timeslots, and then third one is up in the air between another Cena segment/match or a Punk segment (not a Punk match since those have been poor ratings wise). At least try that for next week and see what happens. If Jericho's slot does well then it does well and the angle isn't as much a failure ratings wise as it's appearing. If it doesn't do well... then guess it shows this whole "Jericho being silent" thing just isn't working with the casuals and maybe he should start talking again at least.
