Q9 - 4.787 million
Q10 - 4.418 million
Q11 - 4.388 million
Q12 and Overrun - 4.854 million

I'm surprised at how poorly Jericho and Ziggler did in Q11, although being right after a Diva's match can't have helped. Despite Lesnar and Heyman going on first, it was still the lowest rated segment of the night, so they didn't bump things too much, otherwise people would have tuned out for Q2, Q3 and Q4.
So Punk/Cena, 4.854 mill ending. Great stuff. Highest of the night, which is the least you ask for for an overrun. Orton/Del Rio surprised me a bit with the overall number, but what do ya know?

Lesnar got the lowest segment of the night, but it was a great start for the show.

HBK losing dem viewers talking about HHH... not good. Sandow/Clay losing viewers... meh. While it was interesting the first couple of weeks, nothing of significance has happened since. No promo between the two, just Sandow kicking Clay
s fat ass until last night. Hopefully the feud is done.

Sadly Jericho isn't really a draw, and this proves it. Even for his exit he does has one of three lowest segments of the night with Ziggler.

And finally, Ryback WITH DEM VIEWERS! I hate how Ryback is doing, as he really is nothing more than a Goldberg clone, but damn it's been working.

I'm watching you...

Ryback is the man. It pleases me very much that you hate him and hate that he's getting over. Lovely.

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

The Jericho match lost only 30k on a random slot, not bad at all there. Jericho started doing good numbers again after he came back from the suspension, that's also when he started to be enjoyable to watch again(He is always, but the storyline held even him down)after months of horrible program. He should have been a babyface from the start. Lesnar brought the entire overall of the show up, record number for the opening segment and interest in who won between him and HHH. From next week, there's no Lesnar/Heyman/Jericho and and Orton is going to film a movie soon, add to that the MNF competition and they should get comical ratings.

The entire Show/Henry program did great, RAW and SD. On SD it was to the point where they brought the entire average to RTW levels in October/November or whatever it was.

So one of your faves, Jericho loses 30k and that's "not bad at all", but when Punk and Bryan lost 30k a few weeks ago, it was "a disasterous, horrendous loss" As for Lesnar, he's done nothing for the ratings since he came back. Also, the absence of Orton won't affect the ratings in the least.

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

Lesnar/Heyman was the highest opener they've had since the 1000th Raw so people were obviously interested in the fallout of Summerslam. I imagine had this gone on at 9pm or 10pm it would have done a lot better. Then again, had it not happened here I think the opening would have done a lot worse, probably around the 2.6 mark that Punk/Show pulled last week. People kept tuning in for the whole first hour. 4.2 million, 4.3 million, 4.4 million etc right up until Q6 when they started losing them with steady falls in the second hour. The third hour is all over the place.

Shawn losing viewers in a via satellite interview, while obviously not good, isn't necessarily bad either. He wasn't live, it was obvious that HHH wasn't going to be there and honestly, it just wasn't a very good segment either. Having said that, this took up no more than 5 minutes of a 15 minute quarter. I'm not sure what else happened in that time frame but if it was commercials then it's not surprising that it did badly. Taped segment + commercials = obvious result.

I'm surprised at Jericho/Dolph losing viewers. I know Jericho hasn't impacted on the ratings at all since his return but that match was advertised and had his career on the line. For that segment to lose viewers isn't a good sign for either of them tbh and really, if you ever needed proof that Chris Jericho doesn't make a dent as far as television ratings are concerned, this is it. On top of that, people obviously didn't give a fuck if Dolph lost his MITB either. Just bad. Maybe it's because everybody knew he was leaving anyways? I don't know.

The overrun number is good enough. Not up to the usual Cena standards but still the most watched segment of the night. It's a pity because I thought it was a great segment. We'll see for next week what happens because the lead in is there with Cena walking away and Punk kicking Lawler.

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

I think the low 280k gain at 9pm shows that the fallout from previous night's PPV gain happened at 8pm with Brock/Heyman opening the show. Clay losing viewers is good news. Shawn Michaels interview losing viewers is not surprising, "Via satellite" promos usually dont do well. Even the Rock's via sat interviews have lost viewers. I expected that Jericho/Ziggler match viewership loss. Overrun with Punk/Cena should have done better.

Pretty much.

Yeah that whole thing is pretty confusing. I read in another board where same topic was being discussed, RAW that night ended before Nitro's overrun and viewers switched over post match. It makes sense if you consider how the WWE is actually pushing it, but not too sure.

Actually Henry outdid RTWM ratings. RTWM Avg = 1.92, Henry's Title reign Avg = 2.07

Ratings Henry was fucking Legit.



Shame it had to end early because of his injury.

Good point actually. Might have been the case.

Yes, that's what happened. Raw, a taped show, ended several minutes before Nitro finished. So after Raw went off-air, maybe even immediately after Foleys win, people switched over to Nitro, which happened all the time back then.

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

Both shows had a 5 minutes overrun that night. That's what Meltzer meant. WWE's version of the story and his influence is complete bullshit.

Jericho's match was in the middle of the show, I don't see how it is surprising that it lost 30k, that's probably above average for what that segment usually does. As for Brock in wrestling:
Quote:
2003 - 1. Brock Lesnar; 2. HHH; 3. Kazushi Sakuraba; 4. Big Show and Kurt Angle; 6. Yuji Nagata, Hulk Hogan, Kenta Kobashi, Masahiro Chono, Bill Goldberg, Shawn Michaels and Wanderlei Silva
He was becoming bigger every year, the moment he left and Kurt was injured, SD collapsed in 2004. That was the year it really became the clear B level program.

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

Nah.. Brock wasnt much of a draw in his previous WWE run. SD attendance in 2003 was just as bad as 2004. Brock headlined WM 19, that did the worst buys in history. No mercy 2003 did the lowest buys of the entire year and brock was the headlining act. He is #1 in that list coz HHH suffered a groin injury that year and brock had to work all of the house shows. Lesnar left WWE in 2004 and it didnt affect the business one bit. I've said this before, Brock became a tremendous draw as a MMA fighter but never as a wrestling character. Vince Mcmahon wanted him to be the next mega-star, the face of WWE, gave him the biggest push since Goldberg but it never happened.

As of now, even the company doesnt know how big of a draw he really is, only mania 29 buys next year could show his true worth to WWE. We'll have to wait and see if he can outdraw Rock/Cena from WM28.
