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

Why are people surprised at Y2J losing viewers? There is absolutely nothing entertaining about him right now. You could argue that he is planting seeds for a heel turn and a future feud and I would agree with you. As far as entertainment right now regarding Y2J, as soon as I knew he was going to do same thing, I changed the channel.

lol... but somehow it was true, and I still don't understand why or how to this very day that happened unless people really turned on the channel and thought he was Batista.

I'm watching you...

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.
I was referencing the time Trips came out during Q3 iirc and it gained. Yes he, and Rock, Cena etc for that matter are mostly in the quarter hours that usually do the best but that's because they do actually draw. Look what happens when you put Punk in there. Most times he does about half of what those other guys are doing. That's because as well as the regular people who tune in at that time, other people are tuning in, seeing Rock/Cena/HHH on their TV and staying put until their segment is done. Then they're leaving again. Despite the fact that Jericho has been put in odd quarters, people aren't interested enough to keep checking back to see when he's there. At least that's what I'm getting from it. Either that or it's like what we've all said, that the silent thing just makes for bad TV. Then there's the fact that those guys, bar Cena who has had some weird quarter hours these past few months, have never lost viewers iirc, something that both Punk and now Jericho have.

Whatever it is, I'm expecting a significant jump once football is over. I said this 2 weeks ago for It Begins and it didn't happen. If it doesn't happen again, then I'd start to worry if I were Vince and Co.

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

Don't remember HHH being in a Q3 segment unless it was that one time he did a small backstage segment with John L., and that (along with other stuff) lost viewers.

I'll admit though, I can understand this week, after last week why people may have tuned out when he was doing the same thing he did last week. They probably thought he wasn't going to speak... and they were right. Still it was only an 80k loss, so I don't think it's THAT bad. The other thing is Jericho has never been a draw anyway, so that's another reason why I don't think he's doing that badly considering how much those odd quarters can and have lost.

But yeah, it'll be interesting to see what happens this week as a whole.

I'm watching you...

I think WWE realized that if they kept putting him on TV he'd end up injuring the entire midcard.

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

Main event rating was poor, if it was Punk in it people would be bitching non stop people need to face the fact wwe will not garner much ratings anymore, them days of high ratings are gone, wwe are now relying on advertisements and sponsorships and merchandise sales more than anything for money rather than ratings.
