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

If they're lucky they'll still manage to scrape over the 5 million mark in the (old) normal time slot of 9-11. Then again who knows. Can't wait to see the breakdown. Is it at all possible something got over 7 million?

I'm watching you...

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

I think at this point you can say that in todays world roughly 6 million viewers is the roof for pro wrestling these days. The show was as stacked as its ever going to get, it had all the hype it could ever have. Those 6.3 million viewers is the roof. Maybe if they did a Stone Cold Vs. The Rock match or something they could push it a little further. But other then that.

Atleast for a commercial Raw. Could have been higher without commercials for sure.

Hell of a number. Of course the drop will be huge the coming weeks. But its to be expected.

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

I reckon the overrun may be close to 7 million tbh. It started late, everybody knew something was going to go down and it had no commercial breaks. Whatever way it pans out I'm expecting a pretty steady breakdown once we get into hour 2. Looks like they were able to retain viewership for the whole show which is something they haven't been able to do for the longest time now. I swear to fuck if this keeps happening because of all this Tout shit I give up lol.

Very impressive numbers here. I'm blown away by that and they pretty much retained their viewership for the normal 2 hours as well. The drop next week is going to be comical though lol. No way they keep this going for 2 weeks straight.
Ah, but that's why they turned Punk heel. To try and keep the audience next week. Obviously it will drop, it is simply a matter of how much.

Adult 18-49 Rating was also massive. 2.0, 2.4, 2.4.

Vince mcmahon must be happy.

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

Before the mark wars erupt etc when the breakdown comes, for a pro wrestling show to get 6 million viewers in 2012 and retain them for 3 hours is a HUGE accomplishment. Vinnie Mac be smiling tonight lol.

As for next week, well, the hook is there. Punk turned heel and I'm willing to bet close to 7 million people saw it. Now all we need to see is whether or not it works.

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

Next week is going to be good for 2012 standards because of all the people still expecting to see Rock/Brock/Taker/DX etc on the show, then week after week you're going to see some astronomical drop. They still got the Brock/Heyman/HHH storyline to save them until Summerslam, after that along with MNF, comedy and panic begins.

Another thing is the 3 hours, which is too long, even on RAW it felt too long with all the star power. Unbearable material from next week.

EASILY over 4.0!

I think that is the highest hourly rating since the commercial free Raw in 2009, which I believe makes it the most watched hour including commercials for ten years.

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

If I were booking Raw next week I would have Punk open the show tbh. He was the closing image of this weeks show, he was the hook so he needs to open and if they are serious about this heel turn then he needs to set the tone going forward. Punk to open, Brock/HHH at 10pm and Punk to close again, he's your hook for the week after and so on and so forth.

EDIT - I forgot about the extra hour lol. Tout.
