Flatley my dear, I don't Riverdance.

Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread 2013

Punk drawing in and keeping them viewers on his own in the opening segment, and then doing a great gain in an odd quarter with Jericho is all great for Punk. Of course some will try to put it on The Rock and people expecting him to be there, but then if the segment bombs/doesn't do that well, that's not the case anymore and it's all Punk. What Rock has done is gotten people on a week-to-week basis to notice Punk and maybe turn Punk into a proven draw. One segment on his own doing extremely well doesn't prove anything however, and we'll have to wait and see how his segments do after Mania, as Starbuck pointed out, though if he's out of the title picture and isn't feuding with Taker, we can use his numbers at that point to gauge how big of a draw he is.

Cena disappoints in the overrun for the second time this year to make it two for two. Now in all fairness, the overrun has been hit or miss. Punk/Rock the first Raw of the year did well, Rock concert and the brawl afterwards with Punk the next week didn't do well. Cena's promo before the Rumble with the brawl did terribly considering the hype, Heyman/Vince with Lesnar returning did amazingly well. So who knows. Then again, that applies to the 9PM and 10PM segments as well.

But anyway, MizTV gaining is great and doing top of the show isn't surprising with the Lesnar appearance incoming, plus Heyman seems to be a bit of a draw himself. Great number for that.

I'm watching you...

Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread 2013

It took a while but good to see that more casuals are starting to see the talent that is CM Punk. He may not be a proven draw as of right now, but if he keeps this up he might be soon.

Oh and them Paul Heyman guys bringing in them highest RATINGZ.

Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread 2013

^ They were probably waiting for Rock to interrupt his promo. Even so, Rock/Punk is obviously drawing. So is Brock. How do they fuck that up? Enter Triple H and Cena.

Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread 2013

Hopefully that big viewership dip will teach WWE a lesson: fans are sick and tired of seeing repetitive matches between the same two guys week after week, often with the same damn outcome every time!

Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread 2013

The show opened strong and that's almost certainly to do with the fact that WWE left everybody on a cliffhanger last week and a lot of people were expecting something big to kick things off. It was advertised that it would be MizTV w/Heyman to open the show but instead we got a CM Punk promo. Was Punk the initial reason so many people decided to watch at the beginning of the show? No. Was he the reason that they stayed regardless of that? Yes. Score one for Punk. His match with Jericho gaining in a random quarter equals score two for Punk. Hey, guess what? Maybe the Rock feud is working and all the people exposed to Punk for the past month like what they see and now want to start watching him? Just a thought for the hater parade.

MizTV doing the highest of the night isn't surprising. It was a great segment and of course BORK was there along with Heyman. Brock is more than likely the reason for the overall higher viewership of the show because his storyline with Vince was the hook from last week. People obviously tuned in again to see what would happen. Here's the thing though and it's to do with that is said below...

There was no hook this week so it will be interesting if they can maintain the viewers.
Like BANKSY has said, last week there was a great hook to get people to tune in again this week. But there wasn't really any hook or big reason promoted to watch the show next week. Notching really advanced or furthered. The good thing is that it's the go home for Elimination Chamber so maybe they can expect a boost from that and will be bale to maintain this level of viewership.

I have to say though, it's rather strange to be talking about 3.8 quarter hours when just a month ago they couldn't even hit 3.2 quarter hours lol. DAT RAWK, DAT BORK, DAT RTWM.
