NO! YOU CANNOT BRING REASON AND RATIONALLY-CONCEIVED THOUGHTS TO THIS THREAD!!!!!!!!!11

DAT PITIFUL INDY MIDGET AND THE OLD HASBEEN RON PAUL SUPPORTER CANNOT DRAWWZZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111111111111

NO MATTER WHAT THE CONTENT OF THE SEGMENT IS, HOW QUESTIONABLE IT MAY OR MAY NOT BE, WHAT VARIABLES DO OR DO NOT EXIST, ALL THAT MATTERS IS WHO WAS IN WHICH QUARTER HOUR AND HOW DID IT DO?!?!?!?!!!!!

Seriously, most of the trends that one can see with certain wrestlers such as the one I was pointing out with Santino Marella, are ones derived from problems that have little to do with the talent that wrestler may or may not possess. Santino is clearly a charismatic and entertaining talent when given something worthwhile and isn't going through the same stale motions that have helped to make him seem so shopworn at this point in time. The problem is almost always a matter of writing and booking.

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

personally, i'm glad Bryan fans have accepted the fact that he's solidified himself as the heel Santino, as he should be.

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

The audience got the new start time, normal start here and will be below average in a few weeks.

Kane/Bryan in the skits was awesome. But did terrible in their segment and I can't blame them, that was 7 minutes too long.

Bring back Big Show along with Mark Henry, the two biggest TV draws along with Cena not on TV now is a ridiculous decision with MNF starting. Show was in Australia or something, they filmed something there so that was probably the reason he wasn't on TV. Henry needs to come back the moment he's 100%.

Ryback continues to be a TV beast.

Crazily enough that is what shocks me the most in recent weeks. I usually never dissect ratings seriously, and only look over them casually. However RyBack has gotten over tremendously with the "FEED ME MORE!" catchphrase, and he is drawing viewers in equally well.

The main point of thought is, how long will the squashes of no-names last? I mean, his first feud/normal length match will be the make/break point of RyBack's character. They cannot afford to get it wrong. That is partly why they may be holding out, until they get more confidence of how to use RyBack. Either way, his new theme was a great addition.



Thanks Punk

Can somebody update me on the mark wars? I need to find out the new ways to make fun of Phil in order to impress the Attitude Era marks.

Like Rock316 said a few posts back, people are finally adapting to RAW starting one hour earlier, which is the most likely cause of hour one and two being similar. At that time, it was a bad gain because you still had people tuning in later in the show because of the recent 8 PM start. Not saying this week's was a good gain, in fact I never said that lol. It wasn't a good gain, but Punk/Sheamus tease was the peak this week. He drew decent, u just mad.






best.

???

I never said anything about Punk or whatever he gained this week. Maybe it was decent for the low standards that was this week, though.

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

Orton/Show 500k for 9pm is not "low", "bad", "below average" in any way as the biggest they did in the current run was RAW 1000 and it was 600k. Good is the right description.

I think that it's the presentation of the guy. When you see this mountain throwing people in the air like it's nothing, you stop and watch. They want to build him slowly because he can't work that style with protected babyfaces like Cena/Orton/Sheamus. Probably give him a belt, a big feud with Show or Henry, then start pushing for the main events. He's a big success so far and started a Goldberg TV pattern(Of course not close to the same level but you get my point...)

The drop for the final hour is a great sign because that shows people aren't going to watch 3 hours, 2.8 overall is abysmal number and next week it should be a 2.6, hopefully lower so they can go back to 2 hours before 2013.
They must be encouraged that this past Monday was the first time since Raw1000 that they didn't promote an opening segment and the tune ins was still respectable at the open.

I don't blame the 3 hours, I blame the lack of CM Punk (who left the arena), the non-existence of Cena until th Main Event, (WWE trying to protect his face image instead of him being booed out of the arena during a segment) and a string of 90 minutes of non-consequential wrestling with the worst Mid-Card WWE has had since 2005.

Bring up Ambrose, promote Barrett over the weekend (starting at Smackdown) and cut Ryder, Sin Cara, Santino.

But please don't think the answer is e Big Show coming back... Noone cares.
