Much love for this thread.
Ratings and shit like that are rarely the fault or because of one particular person. This includes when times are good. There's nothing happening on RAW. It wouldn't matter who the champion is, or where the show is, if there's nothing that's "must see" about it, nobody will watch it.


Things need to change. I mean serious change. I mean serious and significant change. Changing the champion will move the needle a bit maybe but it still won't be anything special. The audience just isn't there anymore and the show is doesn't have anything noteworthy anymore.


the days of 10 million people watching wrestling is dead. 3 million is good but nothing compared to 10, people need to realize...can't NOBODY bring that audience back.


Only thing you can do is try new things and change it up.

If Vince really want a rating he should just insert this Punk and Ryback fued into the Cena and AJ love story, make AJ kiss all of them. Love stories = rating. Oh and having Big Show cry in the ring = ratings as well.

Seriously though 3 hours is too much for the mediocre storylines they have going throughout the show.

I don't think there was ever a time when WWE had 10 million viewers.

You all may make fun of people with "IT'S STILL REAL TO ME DAMN IT!" for the young kids or marks or whatever, but you guys are even worse than them. You have this deep-seeded legitimate rage for Cena and his fans to the point where you let it affect your day to day life.

Grow up. Seriously.

I was exaggerating with the 10 million viewers, I have no idea what's the most they've ever had because ratings aren't important to me, I was sort of making a point that they will never go back to Attitude Era viewers...whatever that was.

Where is Rock316 when you need him lol.

I may be wrong but the highest was maybe around 8 million in the USA, but if you count other countries it might have been close to 10 million.

That's why I said 'if I was a casual'. They probably don't realise the potential of a Punk/Heyman segment and just give up on the show as a whole.

Raw is Owen did an 8.1

The 2 highest rated segments (I think) were 'This is your Life, Rock' and Edge and Litas live sex celebration.

Coming off the heels of the third and final hour of Monday's Raw broadcast suffering a fifteen percent drop in viewership, Comcast's listing for Monday programming on the USA Network (available at TVGuide.com) has a rerun of NCIS airing during the 8:00 p.m. time slot with Raw listed as a two-hour program beginning at 9:00 p.m.

The first hour of Monday's show garnered 4,147,000 viewers, with hour two slightly dropping 4,126,000. The third hour, however, suffered its sharpest decline since the program was lengthened to three hours in July, dropping to 3,488,000 viewers. It marked as the fifteenth consecutive week and eighteenth week out of nineteen weeks in which viewership dropped off during the third hour.
From nodq.com

High chance it's just a typo. But then there's a possibility that WWE are quietly reverting back to the 2 hour format. I would like it if they are but we'll have to wait and see. I still kinda like the idea of Raw being 3 hours. Before the shift I was really looking forward to it. There were some weeks when the 2 hours was up and I wished it was a little bit longer. But in the last month or two I've found that it's just not easy to watch 3 hours worth. Even when I don't watch it live and watch it later without commercials, I sometimes find it difficult to make it through that 2 hours and 15 minutes or so and begin to get tired and restless towards the end of the show.

I'm also just tired of looking at this thread every week and seeing the constant arguments of who is bringing in the ratings and who is bringing them down. I think the only time they had a good number for the third hour was the Punk/Vince match. The rest have been bad numbers, no matter who was put in that timeslot. It's clearly a problem of the product not being good enough to warrant a third hour. I still enjoy it every week. I certainly don't hate what the WWE is doing right now and like it a lot more than many people here, but I'm also beginning to struggle to make it through an episode.

I'm tired of trying to find people and other things to blame the low ratings on. PPVs still draw the same buyrates, sometimes slightly higher than past years. Smackdown still draws the same numbers. Raw is the flagship show and it's the only show losing people. It doesn't even have that much to do with the quality of the product. It's simply too long.

They should drop it to an hour & a half then cut out the filler & replays.
