Yeah theirs no doubt the 3 hours are burning out the audience, I think you can't really figure out whose drawing or not at the minute because of that.

I don't think that burning out is the real problem. It wasn't a problem at Raw 1000 at all.

Back when Nitro was 3 hours, they had some of the highest rated quarters in history in hour 3, Luger and Goldberg winning the title from Hogan, for example, broke all records at the time.

I predict the rating to average somewhere between 2.0 - 2.5 in the next 6 years without Cena there to carry their TNA-level drawing backsides.

Then he got over to the point where he can battle Cena, Punk, Orton and whoever else for the most over in the company and they had no choice but to give him something to do. And now they've done their best to make him relevant without giving him a World Title by making him a comedy heel with Kane. I mean, yeah, that's some pretty funny stuff they're doing (even his haters here admit it) but Bryan and Kane both are better than being comedy characters.

The problem is Vince's stubbornness. He only pushes those who he likes. Take Alberto del Rio for instance. No one gives two fucks about him in the audience but he continues to get title runs, title shots, beat top guys, win gimmick matches and anything you can possibly think of. But he still can't get a reaction to save his life. Then there's someone like Zack Ryder. Yeah, he sucks and is a jobber at best but he got over and got a push while he was at his hottest. Quickly they turned him into a stupid geek that was tossed around by Kane and outsmarted by Eve until he once again became a jobber that comes out and loses in 1 minute long squash matches to Alberto. Or take Christian for another example. I know he's old now and all, but he was extremely over last year and could have done something good as World Champion but they cut his legs off before he even had a chance and now he's a jobber and never even shows up to Raw or SD. If somebody gets over despite not being liked by Vince, they'll do anything to sabotage said person's momentum. But if it's Vince's pet project, he'll continue to shove him down the audience's throat and never give up. The question remains on whether he'll ever stop the Del Rio push but that's always the example to use for "pushed despite being unimportant".
very good post

Wish I could see the ratings before and after A.J. comes out.

I turned it on to see any backlash regarding the draw the night before, then when she came out I changed the channel and ended up watching the football game.

- As noted before, the September 17th WWE RAW scored a 2.86 cable rating with 4.05 million viewers, about the same as the previous two weeks. The total number of viewers was the lowest in months. In comparison, the Denver Broncos vs. Atlanta Falcons NFL game did a 11.58 rating with 15.52 million viewers.

The highest rated segment this week came in the first quarter-hour at 8pm, which did a 3.21 rating. WWE had a large audience to start but lost them early when the football game started.

In the segment breakdown, Sin Cara and Rey Mysterio vs. Primo and Epico lost 404,000 viewers when the football game started. Titus O'Neil and Darren Young attacking them plus Eve Torres vs. Beth Phoenix lost 17,000 viewers. Heath Slater vs. Brodus Clay lost 129,000 more viewers. MizTV with The Miz, Booker T and Ryback gained just 381,000 viewers in the 9pm time slot.

Dolph Ziggler vs. Santino Marella and Justin Gabriel vs. Wade Barrett lost 153,000 viewers. The Subway segment with Jared and various Superstars lost 478,000 viewers and fell to a 2.64 quarter rating. Kane and Daniel Bryan vs. R-Truth and Kofi Kingston gained 362,000 viewers, picking back up most of the viewers who tuned out during the Subway segment.

The post-match stuff with them hugging lost 169,000 viewers in the 10pm timeslot, doing a low 2.78 quarter rating. This is a very bad number for that time period of the show. This is the second time a long drawn out hugging segment in a key timeslot has bombed.

Tensai vs. Randy Orton lost 150,000 viewers. Zack Ryder vs. Damien Sandow lost 169,000 viewers and did a 2.56 quarter rating. Sheamus and John Cena vs. CM Punk and Alberto Del Rio in the main event did the best growth for a quarter in a while - gaining 823,000 viewers for a 3.14 overrun rating.

SEGMENT BREAKDOWN

Quote:
Raw on 9/17 did a 2.86 rating and 4.05 million viewers. The rating was in the same ballpark as the previous two weeks. The total viewer number was the lowest in months, even coming the day after a PPV. The difference was the football game with the Denver Broncos vs. Atlanta Falcons that did an 11.58 rating and 15.52 million viewers, way up from last week.

The most notable thing about the ratings is the highest rated segment of the show was the first quarter at 8 p.m., which did a 3.21. So they had a large audience there at the start. They lost them early, when the football game started. But they have now succeeded in getting their audience acclimated to 8 p.m., and also losing them because of the length of the show. The third hour, which should be the highest, has for the last two weeks been the lowest, with hours at 2.97, 2.90 and 2.73.

Raw was third for the night on cable. Raw did a 2.4 in teenage boys (down 8%), 2.4 in Males 18-49 (up 4%), 0.6 in Girls 12-17 (same as last week) and 1.0 in Women 18-49 (down 9%). Viewership was 69.1% male.

In the segment-by-segment, Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara vs. Primo & Epico lost 404,000 viewers when the football game started.

Prime Time Players attacking Mysterio & Sin Cara plus Eve Torres vs. Beth Phoenix lost 17,000 viewers.

Brodus Clay vs. Heath Slater lost 129,000 viewers.

At 9 p.m., when you expect the pick up, with Miz TV interviewing Booker T and Ryback, they gained 381,000 viewers.

Dolph Ziggler vs. Santino Marella and Wade Barrett vs. Justin Gabriel lost 153,000 viewers.

The segment with Jared Fogle offering Subway Sandwiches to everyone lost 478,000 viewers and fell to a 2.64 quarter. Hey, at least they got paid for it.

Daniel Bryan & Kane defending against Kofi Kingston & R-Truth gained 362,000 viewers. So mostly picking back up the people who tuned out for Jared.

All the post-match with Bryan & Kane with the hugging lost 169,000 viewers and that’s at the 10 p.m. hour, doing a 2.78 quarter. That’s disastrous at that time of the show, as usually that’s growth and then people tune out. That’s the second time they’ve done the big long drawn out hugging spot in a key time slot and both times it’s bombed.

Randy Orton vs. Tensai lost 150,000 viewers.

Zack Ryder vs. Damien Sandow lost 169,000 viewers and did a 2.56 quarter.

John Cena & Sheamus vs. C.M. Punk & Alberto Del Rio did the best growth quarter in a while, gaining 823,000 viewers to a 3.14 overrun.

Just like predicted before. This is the biggest 8pm quarter since 7/23 RAW 1000th show. Overrun with Cena and punk, coming off the PPV WWE title controversy obviously did good.

MozTV gaining them viewers.

Not surprising, though. Because the segments preceding it only lost viewers. Sucks the main event did so well since generic tag matches fucking suck.

does WWE even pay attention to this stuff? 'This segment gained viewers, that segment lost viewers,' because if they did they have bad way of improving or changing it.
