But yeah. That third hour is clearly wearing people out.
exactly, less is more..

Even during the attitude era 3 hours was too long,

this is a post I came across on another forum, it is not by me, but I like what the person says about the current state of the WWE

"But the show was dead long time ago, and it's not improving- is this the same plan as the mid-90s, to bore everyone to death and then BAM- come back strong again with another attitude era or something and pull all the fans back in? Or is this for real, where they're just sailing off into the sunset... Vince is getting older, etc etc so the good old days are probably gone and now they're just "maintaining" the show so to speak"


as for the poll in the post, does the WWE draw or do the wrestlers draw? I am sure this has been sound a million times already but "neither draws" haha

Well it looks like the third hour had the hug it out, AJ segment, Ryder vs slater(really?), and Santino vs cesaro. I see why people left

Well at least people can't blame Punk for the last hour loss.

Who ended Raw? I have not seen it so actually don't know.

The last quarter normally get's a huge gain so these numbers indicate either last quarter didn't get as many or the first three quarters were dire.

The main event was ADR vs Cena, and Punk interfered as a surprise in for about 2 minutes in the overrun. Only ADR vs Cena was advertised.

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

Overrun is one big thing that'll hurt the rating. When it was 2 hours, it was basically 2 hours and 10 minutes or something. So you got about an extra quarter rating, which always boosted the rating of the show. Now, they only have like a 1-2 min overrun at most.

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

Was it one of those quick run in distract Cena so ADR get's the roll up win kinda endings or was it something longer? I read Heyman was there so must of been at least 15mins?

No, it was falls count anywhere and they were fighting in the back. Cena hit the AA to ADR on some stage storage cases, and then Punk just kicked Cena in the head from behind, put Del Rio on him, after Cena lost he gave him a GTS so that his face bounced off a car, bent over and said "RESPECT", got into the back of the car, pulled out his title and raised it up, then the driver's window rolled down and we see Heyman looking disgusted at Cena, then he drives away. Punk's involvement and Heyman's brief cameo was like...3 minutes tops. The entire match itself was probably about 10-15.

He's the centerpiece of the show. Therefore, it's all Punk's fault the ratings are horrible.

Cena seems to become the new Orton. He has some star power (a lot more than Orton and ten times more than anyone else) but is relegated into having meaningless match on the shows, which kills his drawing power. I'm pretty sure he'll help the ratings in a couple of weeks if he takes the title and ends the biggest reign of terror in history!
