Not to mention it's just hard to watch 3 hours of any show sometimes, nevermind RAW when it's like it was last week.

You can't blame Punk and you can't blame one person for this mess. It's the product at the whole and overall, it's bad. I don't think it's worse than 2009's RAWs yet but if they continue with shows like last weeks it will get there fast.

Which is odd as the week before was pretty great (the first two hours, at least). What a drop in quality.

- We noted earlier this week that Vince McMahon was seen upset at Monday's RAW. By the time the night was over, it's said that he was in a much better mood for the Jim Ross Appreciation Night stuff that happened after RAW. One of the reasons Vince is in a bad mood these days is because USA Network officials aren't happy with the way things are going with three-hour RAW shows.

yeah if this keeps up. I say going back to 2 hours will eventually happen

As seen on the Online slang list .

Raw is Le Punk : a far more deadly phenomenon than Gustave ,Quicksand,Bermuda Triangle, that makes people mysteriously disappear .

Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)

You can't blame one man for a whole rating of a show. We go by what they do in their segments and matches. Not the overall rating.

The overall rating projects how good the product is. And this product sucks.

I feel like they should try two months of Raw as written by the guy who wrote the Anger Management stuff, along with Trips and his NXT team.

One thing Russo got right was: He said that every wrestler must have a story, or something going on. It wasn't just violence that made TAE good, it was the undercard having something on the burner, however stupid it was. For that reason I even enjoyed watching HEAT back in the day, it was like a mini-Raw. And at the time, J.R. would section his commentary. So if Al Snow was doing something stupid in the first quarter, J.R. would mostly stick to that angle and sell that wrestler. Now, its shit all over and Cole just plugs the 1-2 angles kept for later right from the start.

Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)

GillbergReturns made a great point. If Smackdown has a terrible rating with Sheamus or Orton as champion, people will quickly call them rating killers but if Punk as champion does terrible ratings, they will all go "BUT HIS SEGMENTS GAINED VIEWERS!!!". Double standards, they never cease to exist!

The champion always gains viewers... unless they are CM Punk. I hope you haven't forgotten that episode before Over the Limit when he wrestled Daniel Bryan and Tensai in a handicap match as the MAIN EVENT and it actually lost viewers!

Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)

At least losing viewers against Tensai and Bryan in a handicap match is better than losing viewers against Trips in the overrun in 2009. And besides we already saw Sheamus and Orton drawing ability on Raw supershow in the last 10 shows, so it's save to blame them but not the full blame tho. Mark "Ratings" Henry proved himself on Raw and SD with higher ratings than them as a champion. So it's not really a coincidence for that to happen and not to them when he had a 2.23 something every week and drops when he isn't.
