All the post-match with Bryan & Kane with the hugging lost 169,000 viewers and thatís at the 10 p.m. hour, doing a 2.78 quarter. Thatís disastrous at that time of the show, as usually thatís growth and then people tune out. Thatís the second time theyíve done the big long drawn out hugging spot in a key time slot and both times itís bombed.
Saving the Bryan haters trouble by making this evidence readily available.

Guess that means he sucks, right guys?

I am no Bryan fan by any means. but not blaming him, I blame the WWE Universe for voting hug it out and fans at the arena chanting 'hug it out" making Bryan & Kane wanting to give the fans what they want.

I was being facetious since most Bryan haters will jump at the chance of blaming him for not being a draw while neglecting to notice the ratings boost during his other segments.

I think when even the people who are loving the Bryan/Kane gimmick were saying "ugh, enough" by that point, it's hardly surprising that people tuned out. DB and Kane are awesome, but the writers milked it for more than it was worth on Raw. The fact that it came on the turn of the hour that's been hurting lately probably didn't help.

These numbers don't surprise me... people basically tuned in for the beginning and the end to see what's happening in the main event. While there were some minor glimmers of building the card elsewhere, it was overshadowed by a sense of malaise and lack of pace that just made most segments feel boring and not worth the time. This might be the three hours kicking in and just really hurting the show overall.

Right now, I just don't know what the WWE will do to try and right the ship. It's clear their style of wrestling isn't working to maintain interest, let alone build upon itself. That is a scary trend. It's like they are wearing blinders and refuse to accept they might just have to go with "unproven" guys over who they think is a star... or worse, the fact that the 80s face/heel dynamic just doesn't work anymore. You can't paint by numbers anymore and I think the ratings are reflecting the WWE's failure to cope with that fact.

10 matches is way too much. 6 or 7 matches are enough they should start doing more segments and they should make the matches a lot longer.

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.
But are teens today different to that of 10/15 years ago? Do they go to bed earlier? (I don't know, just throwing it out there)

Holy fuck. People basically tuned in at the start and then kept tuning out all the way until the end. I would call the main event an impressive gain and it is indicative of people wanting to see that match I guess but really, all they did was get back everybody who left in all the segments prior lol. To gain 800,000 viewers and still only be at a 3.1 isn't exactly something to celebrate. The third hour is murdering them these days. People just stop watching from around 10 to 10.45 it seems, then debate coming back for the end depending on what it is.
