I can't say that this is terrible but a big disappointment, HHH segment, day after the Rumble, with a huge 18 minutes overrun should do at least a 4.0, last year the Rumble RAW concept was a big success, I guess the big draw was and still is, the Rumble winner, that's why I said in the results that they should give Sheamus his own segment, maybe in the top of the hour. Next week Taker is not going to be there, so it's HHH and the Taker hype.
1. Conveient how you skipped over the part of my post where I said that top of the hour segment isn't the automatic "huge" viewer gain that it used to be.
2. Lets totally ignore the fact that Orton/Ziggler & Brodus/Reks lost nearly 750,000 viewers combined (and In Orton's "return" match to Raw) and just say it was a weak gain for Punk b/c he couldn't bring enough of those lost viewers back.
Trolling at its finest right here, you do your best to hide it though I will give you kudos for that.
Not true at all, the top of the hour is still the second biggest segment, unless you want to change the entire concept. I'm not ignoring the fact that the matches on random segments were losing, you're just proving Meltzer's point that it was a weak gain after they lost so many viewers already.

Repeat and the content of the video package is irrelevant because it's always losing, no matter what. If you're talking about "live"(taped) Rock promos from last year? not true, he gained huge and was the highest rated segment even from his house.
