Better than I expected to be honest. I predicted 2.2 - 2.5, but I thought it'd be around 2.2 or 2.3 to be honest, just because of the competition on last night with the debates, football and baseball.

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

So we should praise a rating that got less viewers than a 4th of July RAW?

http://www.wrestlezone.com/news/2392...-july-4th-2011

Still don't know how July 4th 2011 raw got 3.7 million viewers = 2.4 rating yet RAW yesterday gets 3.5M viewers and gets a 2.5 rating.

The 9pm hour still does the highest. I think Team Hell No literally took over that whole hour, to kill time. I think it was Ziggler vs Daniel Bryan, then Kane vs Big Show then the Game show stuff.

That was a holiday edition of MNR and generally aren't counted when considering trends etc.

Also the Nielsen number of households which calculates the rating has been changed since July 2011. They also take into account the number of people watching television on a particular night.

Its due to three hours, the rating would have been much lower if it was only 2 hours at 3.5 million viewers.

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

Welcome to the 2.5 territory. Breaking records every week.

I do have one question for anyone who might feel that Dwayne Johnson "owes" the business. Is it just him, or is it anyone who moved on to other things? Should Luna Vachon get heat for running a towing company instead of working on RAW? Should Maven be critiqued on his Home Shopping Network bits instead of wrestling?

Or is it only the ones who go on to highly visible careers in movies that owe something? Why do Johnson (who left after putting people over, doing the traditionally "right thing") and Lesnar (who did not; except for making Eddie a legitimate star) get called sell-outs who "forgot where they came from" when someone who retires to do some regular job get credit (as they should) for moving on and making it without falling into a sea of addiction?

Hey, at least the ratings were consistent throughout all hours, which means that most casuals have watched something else while the 3.5 million fans, of which most are regular ones, have kept watching this week.

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

They should be celebrating with the 2.5, lol. I expected a lot less as did many others. (probably Vince included) Or maybe it's because 2.5 is the new standard...

That number used to be 4.5 million not too long ago. They've already dropped a million. If they dip any further they really will be in troubled waters. This is better than I was expecting but still not good. Era of the 2s indeed. I wonder what will finally crack the 3.0 barrier and be considered a success lol.
