I think 5.7 million viewers is really good for the opening. Shouldnt just stare at the actual rating. Remember back in 2007 they did a overall 4.2 rating but "only" 5.5 million viewers. Its a different time now. This would have probably done a higher rating a few years back.
You dont exactly understand the viewership concept, do you?

Last WWE champ vs WHC champ Edge vs Miz at the 10pm slot gained 50k

So at least we know that Bryan/Punk are way more appealing that the Hall of fame joke and funny face

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

219K for 10pm slot is not great by any means but 3.54 is.So people should not stretch this.Last year a champion vs champion match on 10 pm slot just gained 50k.

But what about orton?I have never been a mark of his but it's really worrying that he loses viewers every time he is on raw.He lost 700k once and now 1/2 million.

Cena again showed that he is the only guy on active roster who can draw even after being in strange quarters.

The overrun should have gained more than that though.

Rock316AE, why can't you just get the sand out of your vagina? CM Punk is OVER. Deal with it. Oh, and don't go and brand me with being a "Punk mark" because I was and always have been a Rock fan even before I came across Punk.

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

Orton/Ziggler lost viewers mostly because it was evident who was winning and it was just a thrown together match with no story for Ziggler.

As for the three big segments... not surprised at the near equal viewers at the beginning and the end. The start of the show not only was the "who won from last night" bit, but it also had some decent tension between everyone involved. The end was of course HHH and hyped, Taker coming back only helped. Showing that good booking with an actual SURPRISE swerve can work. And the middle segment... not a bad gain for a pure wrestling match with no promos whatsoever. I think if they built more matches like that with a storyline on top of it they could only see the rating go higher. It does prove just a bit that people want to see Bryan and Punk in some capacity. They were practically the only thing in that segment save for 20 seconds of Jericho near the end.

Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace

I change the channel every time Orton comes on my tv. I seriously have no interest in anything his lame ass is involved in.

lol, always trying to protect HHH... oh wait he's banned.

That being said, I remember there being a lot of buzz about Rock returning... at least on here. For Taker returning, maybe the odd person predicted it, but that came out of left field.

In any event, whether you count Taker as help or not (which I do for reasons I stated earlier), I do consider the increase a moderate disappointment, unlike the fact I didn't consider the Punk/Laurinitis match from last week a disappointment in ratings despite pulling in 700k+ viewers (roughly the same). Taker and HHH are both bigger draw than Punk, and while the segment may have drawn more (not sure on the exact numbers) it wouldn't of been that big of an increase over Punk's segment with Laurinitis. Not to mention Taker returning should've gotten viewers who were hearing about it to turn on the TV asap, which is how the whole surprise return thing works when it comes to ratings. It wasn't even the highest viewed part of the show. That being said, it still pulled back in the vast majority of people from the beginning of the show, so it may not be a completely bad number. But all things considered, it's not really that good (but it's not bad either).

Oh, and just a little fact (not sure if this has been posted), but this was the highest rated Raw since the night after WM27... shouldn't be much of a surprise, but yeah.

I'm watching you...

Q7 - 3.12 rating / 4.56 million
Q8 - 3.34 rating / 4.89 million
Overrun - 3.85 rating / 5.64 million

If you bundled Q8 and the overrun together, like they have done in the past, you get about an average of 3.59 rating / 5.26 million, a gain of 700k on Q7.

Okay breakdown, as noted by Rock316AE in the breakdown a day ago, the RAW after Royal Rumble last year had an overrun above a 4.0 rating so the overrun rating may be slightly disappointing. Saying that (unlike last year!), they left RAW on a high with a big return which should keep viewers until next week and the numbers should well be similar for next week.
So let's see Punk/Bryan/Johnny/Sheamus starts the show off and gets the highest rating, and the second highest rating other than the overrun was the punk/bryan match? Hmmmmm..

Thanos is only beaten because he allows himself to be, and he only allows himself to be beaten because, in spite of his ambition to attain ultimate power, he sub-consciously knows that he's not worthy of it.

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

So a 6 man tag match with Jericho, Punk and DB V Otunga, henry and Dolph Ziggler gained more then Taker and Trips? wtf lol?

But really people should really stop looking and judging and peoples drawing ability strictly on how much they gained. DB and CM Punk only gained 250,000, but did a 3.5 rating, which (sadly) for a wrestling match with two truly unestablished stars, is great.

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

Considering past Raw ratings and Smackdown's improvement or steadiness since Henry lost the belt, as hard as it will be for many to admit, there are a lot more Bryan marks then there are Punk's. Orton's ability to turn viewers off is very troubling though since many hope for him to return to Raw after WM.
