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...

Vince is a TV draw not a PPV draw

Can't belive Aj/Punk vs Kane/Bryan lost so little.
I guess people wanted to wait for the Vince/Show segment.
Countdown timer was a good idea

Although if I remember correctly, the last time Vince showed up on RAW the overrun did over 1 million viewer gain. But still good numbers by Vince, he is automatic draw, legend in his own right.

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

I think the promo helped people remain interested in the Punk/Bryan/Kane match. I mean, every other time it's just been a match thrown on screen, this time there was build to it. Something COULD have happened and people stuck around more than usual.

Also, love that Big Show does Punk gains in the 10pm slot and the writer couldn't be assed this time to mention how "poor" that is for that slot. At least be consistent in the praise/criticism.

Overall... not surprised McMahon drew and not surprised that actual promos drew. Surprised at Vader though... who would have thought that many hardcore fans would tune in just for that... it certainly wouldn't be casuals changing for a blast from the past.

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


Raw is like watching Dexter's finale every week... why did I do that to myself for so long?

Yes, but the overall number probably wasn't as high as this.

Say the overall number had been a 2.9, then the end segment would of gained over a million.

The last time he showed up, I think it was last year. A promo segment with Triple H, Vince McMahon and John Cena did the overrun. It was in July of last year I think.

The last three hour RAW was in April and then one in December.

Thought the same. I also love how Rock316 called it a big gain. But a few months ago, a certain sobriety test segment did practically the same gain with an even better rating, and called it terrible. Rock316 = Dave Meltzer.

A big reason, in my opinion, for the Vader match doing so great has to be Twitter. It's probably responsible for a lot of great bumps in quarter ratings. Maybe a bunch of old fans caught that he was trending on twitter and decided to tune in. We all give a lot of flack to WWE for constantly mentioning the Tweeter but hey, the shit works.






best.

Well, not to sure about this but I think overall the last time he showed up, it did about 1,300,000 viewers.
