Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
Well... 9PM gains in the number it usually does. 10PM does decently enough considering it's not been a big gainer in months, and the overrun was an average gain.
Punk/Orton and the match following with the two gaining is great, even if it was a very low gain and shows they had kept people's interest and others tuned in to check it out. Sheamus/Otunga had a good gain, but unless I'm incorrect in my math it's still under what the start of the show was, and for most of the shows since Raw 1000 the 8PM slot has been one of the weaker slots of the opening hour and the whole show. So Sheamus/Otunga's gain happened because nearly the same number of people tuned out the prior quarter.
I'm surprised they didn't see a large gain at least in the overrun with what happened to Lawler. Either people just couldn't bare watching the show anymore for the night after reading what happened to Lawler, or they just felt no need to. It's still an average overrun gain and the highest segment of the night I believe, but I guess I shouldn't have expected more when thinking more about it.
I'm watching you...
