Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
In the segment-by-segment, the show opened with the C.M. Punk promo and Mick Foley coming out first quarter doing a 3.21. Ryback vs. JTG lost 432,000 viewers so Ryback is still not a ratings draw. Randy Orton vs. Wade Barrett gained 123,000 viewers. Daniel Bryan & Kane vs. Prime Time Players gained 1,000 viewers.
The Vickie Guerrero/John Cena in ring at 9 p.m. gained 373,000 viewers, although 9 p.m. has become a traditional gain spot doing a 3.25. Kofi Kingston vs. Antonio Cesaro and A.J. Lee and Vickie Guerrero backstage lost 451,000 viewers. Zack Ryder & Santino Marella vs. Jinder Mahal & Heath Slater and A.J. Lee vs. Beth Phoenix lost 304,000 viewers, so Lee wrestling is not a big deal to viewers. At 2.70, it was the low point of the show.
The Sheamus and Big Show in-ring 324,000 viewers, which came at 10 p.m., and is the best 10 p.m. growth in a while doing a 2.94. Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara vs. Cody Rhodes & Damien Sandow lost 189,000 viewers. The in-ring Susan G. Komen check presentation lost 143,000 viewers. Alberto Del Rio vs. Justin Gabriel gained 59,000 viewers. The Punk/Foley team announcement gained 708,000 viewers to a show high 3.26 overrun.
Just a note there is a pretty significant error in the breakdown, or something is missing, running it through Excel and with the figures provided there is no way Hour 3 averaged 3.783 million - in fact all the quarters I have at above 3.783 million based on the figures above.
So Hour 3 above has a big error in it.
