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

Yes, three hours full of comedy bullshit permeating 70% of the show, TMZ storylines, Team Steph self-indulgence, and general incompetence does hurt more than 2 hours of it.

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?

What's Punk got to do with this?

By the time he came out for his celebration, the show was Three Hours in!

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

Looks like this gonna be a record low for the year.

Wrestlezone -

Quote:
The Wrestling Observer is reporting that Monday's episode of WWE Raw, despite being the one year anniversary of WWE Champion CM Punk's title reign and the follow-up to Survivor Series, may very well draw another near-record low for the company.

Raw did hours of 3.9, 3.9 and 3.7 (in millions of viewers) with Punk's celebration drawing the lowest rating. To put it in perspective, October's record low rating was a 2.48, and this week's show only brought in a few hundred thousand more viewers.
Official rating is not out yet.

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

to be fair, punks celebration was literally in the last 5 minutes of scheduled time. I felt tricked that I sat through that much shit to see punk for what was, at max 10 minutes...but we get like 5 recaps of Cena kissing AJ...

Not to mention, if people gave a fuck about him and his #1YEARCELEBRATION, surely they would have tuned in and raised the overall viewership.

Well deserved numbers because the shows continue to suck.

even you have to admit that Punks Celebration was poorly placed and even more poorly executed...I remember it being halfway through the 3rd hour and me wondering "is this shit even going to happen?" and then when it did I was like "thats not a fucking celebration!"...at least ryback got put through the table again

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

Wow. Bad rating considering they really hype the final segment and it was a post PPV show. Didn't expect such a low rating.

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

Fans have been conditioned to know that the good segments happen at the end of the show (and occasionally at the beginning and top of the hours) so you can't blame Punk for people tuning out during those other parts of the show
