It was a pretty stupid segment in all honesty. I hope WWE blames twitter for the bad rating because I don't think it would have been as bad if they just had a match.

WWE probably thought that the WWE Universe would vote for a match. And they got surprised. So they let just play-out and drag on.

Anyways just bad numbers all around. And it will get even worst next week when their a MNF double header

Nah, I bet they expected the hug, believe it or not but stuff like "Hug-offs", and "dance offs" usually win those type of polls.

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

They opened well, 9PM did alright. IIRC, most of the previous 9PM slots have gained at least 450k. I could be wrong with that but it's still good.

The whole Kane/DB thing obviously struck out this week. I enjoyed it and thought it was the best part of the show but very clearly the rest of the viewing audience didn't and tuned out in their droves. The fact that they actually lost viewers at the 10pm slot is fucking horrible tbh. No matter what, that slot should never be losing viewers. This is a case of the gain taking precedence over the rating itself because 10PM was higher than the opening segment but I'd hardly call it a success. Context people, context. Ryback bringing DEM GAINS. U MAD?

That 2.53 quarter killed them and it took the next 2 quarters to get those viewers back. The overrun number is bad. I guess the only thing to take from it is the fact that they ended the show with the same number of viewers as when they opened. In other words, they were able to get the people already watching to stay watching but this weeks show didn't attract any new viewers at all. That's the bad part. Good and bad all in one lol.

I stand by the fact that next week they are truly dead. BRING DA PAIN lol. Vince gna be mad

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

The highest rated segment for RAW was the CM Punk and Sheamus promo along with the 1st Anger management segment. The second highest was believe it or not the Divas match and Sheamus vs Jack Swagger, then 3rd highest was the Cena vs Alberto Del Rio main event.

The lowest rated segment for RAW was the Santino vs Cesaro match and the Heath Slater vs Zack Ryder match (this completely killed off the 3rd hour). The second lowest was the AJ/Vickie promo in the third hour that couldn't recover due to the Santino/Cesaro and Ryder/Slater matches. The third lowest was the final anger management segment.

People can't watch this mess for 3 hours straight. Its just the way it is. They really need to just admit that 3 hours over 2 hours will ultimately be their doom.

That's true. Just a few weeks ago Big Show vs Randy Orton at 9PM gained 480,000 viewers and there were some Punk marks who got on Orton's case because it was a "horrible" gain, lol.

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

The matter of segment breakdowns is just the final piece of evidence in the argument that Santino Marella is in desperate need of a heel turn. His comedic babyface character has run almost completely out of steam, and this current storyline with "The Cobra," while cute at first, is becoming more grating and less amusing as it goes along. They got 3-1/2 years out of this face run, and for the most part it's been fun/enjoyable for what it is but the character has lost a great deal of luster. When he comes out now, it feels like crowds and apparenatly viewers react with a nominal, "Oh, Santino," reaction these days. Ironic how the United States Championship reign, which should have been a promotion, feels like the period of time in which he grew staler and staler, as well as more superfluous to the product at large.

He needs a somewhat inventive heel turn, with a fresh character modification, like R-Truth in the spring of 2011.

Someone named Daniel Bryan is already in that heel Santino midcard spot.

I do have one question for anyone who might feel that Dwayne Johnson "owes" the business. Is it just him, or is it anyone who moved on to other things? Should Luna Vachon get heat for running a towing company instead of working on RAW? Should Maven be critiqued on his Home Shopping Network bits instead of wrestling?

Or is it only the ones who go on to highly visible careers in movies that owe something? Why do Johnson (who left after putting people over, doing the traditionally "right thing") and Lesnar (who did not; except for making Eddie a legitimate star) get called sell-outs who "forgot where they came from" when someone who retires to do some regular job get credit (as they should) for moving on and making it without falling into a sea of addiction?
