You're probably right.

Quote:
WWE Raw on Monday, September 17 following the Night of Champions PPV scored a 2.87 rating for all three hours, essentially even with a 2.88 rating last week.

This week's standard two-hour rating was a 2.93 rating, compared to a 2.98 two-hour rating last week, reflecting a poor third hour rating this week.

- Raw averaged 4.05 million viewers, down two percent from last week's average of 4.14 million viewers up against Week 1 of ESPN's Monday Night Football season.

Raw took another third hour hit, averaging a show-low 3.93 million viewers despite advertising a "Super Main Event" at the start of Raw. The third hour slightly beat the year-low final hour viewership two weeks ago.

The hourly break down: 4.11 million first hour viewers for immediate Night of Champions fall-out (vs. 3.78 million 1H viewers last week), 4.12 million second hour viewers, and 3.93 million third hour viewers.

- On cable TV Monday night, Raw ranked #3 behind the NFL and "Major Crimes" on TNT. Top competition was Peyton Manning on Monday Night Football Week 2, which averaged 15.5 million viewers, up five million viewers from Week 1.

In the key male demos, Raw's final hour outdrew the second hour. However, teen males dropped off in the final hour, which reflects viewer fatigue or viewers not able to stay up that late during the school year.

I'm sure that won't stop people from blaming WRESTLER X though.
I completely concur with this.

Two things I've noticed in the past few weeks under "3-hour Raw"? Firstly, I can envision many families across the land now adjusting to the new start time with their kids, and thus the new time is more kid-friendly, but because those kids still consume two hours' worth of Raw a week, the parents and perhaps even the kids are satisfied with those two hours and are done at 10:00pm with it. WWE's emphasis toward families has probably never been more strongly felt than right now. WWE's largest demo remains young adult males, of course, and as the numbers indicate, they stay around, by and large, but that little drop-off of 200,000 or better each week may have something to do with this phenomenon I'm imagining through osmosis and boredom.

Secondly, these three-hour breakdowns are vastly less interesting than the old two-hour ones, rendering many discussions about same kind of redundant and tired. Never before has the viewership habits of Raw been more overwhelmingly dictated by bland times in the abstract rather than our imagining that it has everything to do with WRESTLER X drawing so well and WRESTLER Y having no clue in how to draw at all. Clearly there are guys who are doing well on their own in random quarter hours like Ryback and at times The Miz but for the most part, there is a kind of plain-to-see, undeniable "flow" to the three hours now and it's like the same song each week with a few minor tweaks in the highness or lowness of the notes.

And what do you know? I had written a couple of sentences of that post above and then went on to write a lengthy post in a Wade Barrett thread, then returned here to finish the above post... and right above it, Vyed's post more or less confirms my own insect antennae-based "theory." D.M.N. and The-Rock-Says also got in, ha.

RAW was in school year every week, every year. In the same timeslot and with MUCH more teens watching the product than today, when it's close/or at an all-time low. So no, this is not a factor like it wasn't in 18 years of programs, the pattern was always second hour growing with the rare 1-2 times in a few months, it changed since mid 2011 for some odd reason, probably because of the dull concept every week. The third hour pattern is clearly viewers sending a message that they're not going to sit through a filler 3 hour RAW every week. I hope the gap continue to grow and hopefully it goes back to 2 hours before RAW 20 years in January.

So within 8 weeks, they've lost 33% of their audience. I guess Vince is counting the days until Rock comes back.

To be fair we should discount the 7/23 "Raw 1000"

More like 10-15% loss over 7 weeks I think. It's still a bad trend.

I lol'd hard at Ryback throwing the Miz's couch out of the ring like it was nothing.

sooner or later they have to realize that going back to 2 hours will be better off for them.
