Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
I expected Foley to gain a good number in the main event, unfortunately, the overall main event number was terrible for this time of the year with a 10 minutes overrun. Punk/Ace was not big like I thought it would be, after all the hype for their match, months of promo time, plenty of segments + no competition + 11-12 minutes overrun? but it's Punk after all so I guess it shouldn't be surprising. to end the final RAW before the Rumble with a 3.5 is terrible no matter what, I can see the Rumble doing the worst overall number since 97. Kane/Ryder did much better than expected and hopefully from next week, Jericho would be a real star character and not a clown running around the ring and he can be in the main time slots.
For next week, I can see a 3.5 overall, 4.0+ for the HHH segment and if it's on the show in a main slot, the Orton Rumble winner segment 3.6-3.7
