It's really hard to find, I could try tho. I did find some of the ones in 2010, not sure in 2009 I will check.

Sounds good, they do get the blame but 3 hours show never was a good idea, even in the past. Today era is really different, it takes years to get them back, because many of the current wrestlers aren't build enough to reach that level.

WWE Raw TV ratings in 2009 were marked by definitive fluctuations that occurred due to specific events. The first three months of the year were the most consistent building to WrestleMania 25, then a post-Mania lull, seasonal changes, and the guest host concept created those distinct changes.

Looking at the average of each three-month period that makes up the four quarters of the year, the first quarter from January to March averaged a 3.67 rating and 5.41 million viewers. April to June (Q2) declined slightly to a 3.66 rating and 5.36 million viewers.

July to September (Q3) declined a little more to a 3.62 rating and 5.24 million viewers. This was followed by a distinct drop-off to a 3.39 rating and 4.93 million viewers from October to December (Q4). The following is a graph of the quarterly ratings trend.

Q1 - 3.67 rating and 5.41 million viewers
Q2 - 3.66 rating and 5.36 million viewers
Q3 - 3.62 rating and 5.24 million viewers
Q4 - 3.39 rating and 4.93 million viewers

There are patterns within the quarterly break down that captured the distinct fluctuations. The first quarter of the year contained the second-most watched month of TV when February averaged a 3.81 rating and 5.61 million viewers. This fed into a relatively strong month of March prior to WrestleMania 25.

The month of April (Q2) started strong with post-WrestleMania fall-out, but then completely tapered off to where the month of May nearly hit rock-bottom for the year. If not for November's weak TV ratings, May would have been the least-watched month of Raw programming during the year.

WWE instituted the guest-hosting concept at the end of June after incorporating Donald Trump into storylines that helped boost the Q2 average rating. That created an upward trend for Q3 that lasted until August for the Summerslam build-up. However, at the end of Q3 in September, ratings dropped off 7.9 percent compared to August.

The final three months of the year from October to December were part of the natural seasonal decline in viewership against Monday Night Football on ESPN. WWE tried to utilize the guest-hosting concept to off-set declines in viewership and it helped to some degree.

The fourth quarter declined 7.9 percent in TV ratings compared to the first quarter at the beginning of the year. Looking at the same 2008 seasonal changes, the fourth quarter 2008 declined 13.0 percent compared to the first quarter at the beginning of 2008.

In Part 2, we'll do a complete comparison of 2009 overall ratings compared to the 2008 overall ratings while also comparing the yearly trends. The following is a list of several periodic comparisons to create a visual of the 2009 trend in Raw TV ratings.

Well said. And blaming bad ratings on Orton for Smackdown 2011 rings a bell too!

And I'll get this in while I'm at it.

Not 2011, I mean 2010 after his peak. So many reason for his peak, Trips one of them, he made sure that Orton and Batista have the best booking and everything else, he made them no question about that. The difference is Batista is a bigger draw both on Raw and SD.

No, sometimes you act like a troll, in the end of the day you're the one who gave me 28+ red reps including Rock316ae and others didn't. I dont waste my time doing that to you. I only respond to your and others comments and you just hide behind your red reps.

What were the dates of these shows? That's very interesting that the overrun lost viewers on the first batch when it had Orton and HHH involved. Who was in the 5 on 5 main event? That got a big gain. I can only assume it had something to with HHH, Orton, the McMahons, and/or maybe Taker/HBK, but I'm not sure.

03.25.2009 and 05.28.2009.

I also found this 02.11.2009.
- As reported yesterday, Monday's edition of WWE Raw scored a 3.4 cable rating, which was down from last week's 3.6. The show did hours of 3.34 and 3.50. Here are the quarter hour breakdowns:

* 9:00 - 3.37
* 9:15 - 3.28
* 9:30 - 3.40

* 9:45 - 3.31
* 10:00 - 3.48. - it's one of those three that Orton was part of, nothing was impressive, he's not a big draw like some says. He lost viewers in the overrun in my previous post, it just proves my point. The show was fully supported by others.
* 10:15 - 3.46

* 10:30 - 3.50
* 10:45 - 3.41
* Overrun - 3.83

The first one was in March, that was the night when Orton kissed Stephanie in the ring after laying her out with an RKO. Back then, I was a member of another popular wrestling forum, I remember when this particular rating breakdown came out, there was a lot of long discussions going on, about why the overrun lost viewers. Apparently the reason was "Man on Woman Violence" tend to be direct rating killers with the casuals. I'm not sure if thats the case but it makes sense since the main event was high point of the show and outdrew the Overrun. Also, i recall someone posted that rating dropped when Cena attacked Lita back in 05/06? at the top of the hour or something. Not too sure though.

The second one was in May. The big rating was because of the conflict over pepsi center with NBA, when WWE had to move the event to staples center coz of double booking on the same date. Vince Mcmahon effectively used it for publicity and booked a 5 on 5 match involving MVP, Cena, Batista, Lawler & Kennedy vs. Orton, Legacy, The Miz & Show.

Match sucked but was hilarious,

For some Users: Remember this..

Q: Are Household ratings irrelevant form of measurement when looking at ratings? No one seems to mention them anymore

A (Ted Linhart: SVP of Research at USA Network): Good Q. Yes HH started being irrelevant in 90s. Total viewers for bragging rights & 18-49 (rating or viewers) for revenue generation are it


..before writing about ratings.

Yup, WWE has pushed Cena over everyone. I think a heel turn would be a great attraction because that could help make new stars instantly. Look @ Kofi and how over he became instantly going up against Orton, and he's still over as hell from then. Then again, I don't know what's good for business other than me just tuning in. lol

Huge discussion on this week. The entire story this week was that Punk was all over the show, in every key segment and they did the least amount of viewers for a non-holiday RAW since 97. Along with what was probably, Top 5 worst overruns in the history of wrestling overruns. The strongest point here was a big Mick Foley return which is why his segment did decent and everything else bombed. Extremely low numbers but exactly what you would expect from the breakdown.

It's crazy to think that a few years ago we had a roster consisting of 7-8 full-time Cena's (HBK, HHH, Taker, Rock, Austin, Angle, etc).

Also, I'd still say Orton is a bigger draw atm than Punk (not saying much either way).
He is and that's because he's much more valuable to the mass audience who saw him as a Top guy and leading attraction for almost a decade, even when he wasn't booked in a real feud for almost a year now, he still gets the biggest pops on his connection alone. That's why they're not turning him heel until Sheamus gets to his level as a brand carrier. Don't see the reason for all the Orton/Punk talk, they're in completely different calibers, one is the guy who main evented house shows for 9 years in a row, drew big on PPVs, drew big on TV(Alone, yes, HHH got into the program with him in 2009 because he was so hot, not the other way around, the biggest segments of the program were Orton and Vince in Chicago, and a Orton/Shane match after NWO. And Orton also did it on many years before that, huge success with Hardy in 2008), main evented WMs, was in a program with almost every Top star in the last 15 years, one of the biggest WWE draws on the road for 00-09(Top 8)and already had a legendary career to a guy who is booked as "top guy" for less than a year, never a difference maker, was in the mid card for most of his time including his "top guy" year with most of it as a completely forgettable run. Some people confused who gets currently more attention on TV to the overall career. These two guys aren't comparable in any way. People weren't saying that X-Pac was a bigger star than Arn Anderson for example just because he got more attention on TV at times as part of his Wolfpack run in 1997. It's all in perspective.
