Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
Great breakdown I'd say. The number kept increasing as we went. Big gain for Punk/Bryan/Kane/AJ, though considering the slot, it's a good gain, but nothing incredible. Big Show had a nice gain in the 10PM timeslot, about average with what Punk has done the past few months in it, maybe a bit more. The gain after that though is the really interesting thing. And of course, the final segment gaining 721000 viewers is incredible. Vince, despite losing touch, getting senile, etc... he's still the biggest fucking draw they've got nowadays until Rock and Lesnar come back... and even then he may be a bigger draw than Lesnar. Not sure that even Taker and HHH could pull the above average numbers Vince got and keep the show afloat like he did. I don't think any of the Taker/HHH/HBK segments pulled a 3.99 rating. He actually impacted the whole show rather than just his main segments. I bet a lot of people stayed tuned to see if Vince would pop up. Of course I bet most people knew the likes of Taker/HHH/HBK would only show up once on the show, but it's still interesting to see.
So yeah, Vince is awesome. Nuff said.
I'm watching you...
