Lets just ignore that there were 5 other guys there. Also add in the fact that Ryback gained over 100 thousand viewers in his match with Cesaro later in the night.

Ignore him, it's just terrible trolling attempts from butthurt Punk marks trying to "fight back" against all the backlash Punk gets for the bad ratings. What they don't get is the fact that Punk is the champion and has been the main event of the show for all the months people blamed him for falling ratings, so that makes some sort of sense at least. Picking on Ryback is like the most random thing one can do.

It was the end of the brawl that lost viewers. That lasted all of what, a minute? JTG vs Clay was easily the reason for the dropoff. And I fail to see how Barrett would solve their alleged "problems." Pretty sure The Shield is more over than Barrett.

I think what D.M.N. means is, that Meltzer seems to get "only" quarter hours, but often joins two quarters.

If you see other breakdowns on the net, they look like this one (+- some demos/or with quarter hours):
Survivor Philippines (CBS) - 12/16/12
8:57: 14.513 million viewers, A18-49: 4.0/9, A25-54: 5.4/11, A18-34: 2.2/6
9:00: 11.784, 3.4/8, 4.6/10, 1.8/5
9:30: 11.395, 3.2/8, 4.5/9, 1.6/4
10:00: 11.389, 3.2/8, 4.5/10, 1.5/4
10:30: 10.946, 3.0/8, 4.2/10, 1.4/4

So the question is, why didnt Meltzer post the breakdown this way?
Bolded bit hits the nail on the head - this happens regularly with the breakdowns which is frustrating and doesn't really tell us anything at all. As soon as you bundle two separate quarters together, you open yourself to questions in my opinion.

When was the flair segment...at 9pm?
Yeah, Flair was on the hour, the 605k gain is a great gain, as is the raw 4.7 million number for that quarter. Best quarter in ages.

Depends on what you mean. If your point is about quality, then yes, he's midcard at best. If it's about presentation, he stopped being in Cena's shadow around June. And he officially became the focus of the show after SummerSlam (even if Cena was involved in some of it). So it makes sense that he takes some of the blame for bad ratings. After all, the champion is the guy who gets paid the most and represents the company. As champion, it's your duty to get people to watch and the Punk Effect has been a complete 180 of that.

And look what's happened in the past couple of weeks. He's stopped hogging the spotlight three times minimum a week and the numbers are getting back up. I don't think it's just a coincidence.

Punk bringing in the big quarters once again. Can't really credit Cena at all, since Punk's music hit as soon as the quarter started, and by that time Cena had left the stage. That gain goes to Punk and Flair, well deserved since it was a great promo. And Triple H can't draw. See you all next week.

Perhaps he was overexposed prior to the injury. He was in, what, 4-5 segments a week before TLC?

In any event, Cena is still the only real "ratings draw" working RAW right now, so I don't get everyone blaming Punk specifically. I mean, sure he's the champion, but it is possible that the product(and possibly even the fact that no one else is a big mainstream name) is what is drawing the fans away.

Once again, the combined power of CM Draw, GOAT Flair, and the essence of Mark Henry brings in excellent viewership in their respective timeslots.
