Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread [Post All TV Ratings Discussions Here]
Do people really think that's a bad rating nowadays? It's pretty much expected. WWE was barely drawing 3.5 with The Rock as the WWE Champion, an all-time great during the hottest season of the year, and with Lesnar, Taker and Triple H as additional support cast. Lesnar barely appears now and even if he does it doesn't matter cause the feud with Triple H is terrible, Rock is gone, no Taker and no hype for anything. You need to compare the numbers to PRE-WM Season and you'll realize that anything 2.7 and up isn't bad by WWE 2012-2013 Standards anymore. I'm pretty sure WWE will hit several 2.5s and under this year, the ratings just started dropping and they will continue to drop a while until they stablize hovering around 2.7-2.9s. The days of 3.0s beeing considered bad, or even average are gone, in 2013 a 3.0 is a success and a high drawing show.
