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

1.Three hours is too tiring

2.Del Rio is the biggest anti-draw ever.Even Andre the Giant can't draw with this guy

3.Starr of third hour was miserable

4.Most of show was focused on CM Punk.Punk holding interest for 3 hours is not possible

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

"It's a holiday." "School's starting." Dude, I can go back to previous years(Ruthless Aggression, even 2007) and Labor Day Raws weren't 2.8s. Those aren't valid excuses. The third hour score is terrible. Doesn't it usually increase into the 10pm hour?

At least it seems like they have a big storyline now that MNF is about to start with Punk/Heyman, but they need to deliver on it.

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

I already expected this, having stupid and pointless matches in the third hour is the reason for this drop.

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

How can anyone sit down and watch RAW for three hours? I hope the ratings keep dropping till it goes back to two hours.

Well how come Punk's hours that featured him prominently drew decent viewership and the 3rd hour, which featured him in an unannounced, surprise 3 minute segment in the overrun, was what drew so terribly? As far as everyone was concerned he'd left in hour 2. This rating does NOT fall on Punk. Then again, most don't, yet people just like to blame him anyway. Regardless, in this case there is no possible way anyone can twist things around to make him appear to be the big ratings killer.

Exactly... how in the fuck was he the focus of the show? He was there for maybe 20 minutes in the first hour, left, and didn't come back til the very end. Yeah... that was the focus... sure. And that third hour... yup, the ghost of CM Punk was haunting the camera and scared away the millions wanting to tune in but just couldn't because of CM Punk.

Most of the show seemed built around AJ being terrible if you go by what was on screen. I just don't understand these people so desperate to hate a wrestler they spout this crap to try and prove their hatred right. It's quite pathetic.

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?

I'm a fan of Punk that said...Punk and Workout Buddy(who is also a rating killer) had a promo together that sure killed a lot of interest.

Undertaker is a selfish, arrogant, broken down old has been who can't give it up, who doesn't give one shit about the next generation of stars and helping the company that made him thrive. It's always all about him.

WWE Raw on Labor Day Monday, September 3, 2012 scored a 2.83 rating for all three hours, down 10 percent from a 3.14 rating the previous two weeks. It was the lowest overall rating since May 28.

The standard two-hour rating was a 2.85 rating, which was the result of the final hour (not the new first hour) dragging down the overall rating.

- Raw averaged 4.20 million viewers for all three hours, which was the second-fewest of the 3-Hour Raw era. Again, the average was dragged down by the final hour (as opposed to the new first hour).

The final hour averaged a year-low 3.91 million viewers. The score was lower than the final hour of the May 28 episode (against the NBA Playoffs and Hatfield & McCoy combo) and the January 9 episode (against the BCS National Title game). The previous final-hour-low was 3.85 million viewers on November 7, 2011.

The hour-by-hour break down of Raw was 4.31 million first hour viewers, 4.40 million second hour viewers, and a steep decline to 3.91 million third hour viewers.

- Externally, Raw's final hour was opposed by a down-to-the-wire conclusion to ESPN's college football game, which averaged 4.30 million viewers overall, two episodes of "Pawn Stars" on History, and a TNT drama, "Perception," which outdrew Raw.

As a result, Raw ranked #5 in overall viewers Monday night. Raw did rank #1 in key male demographics despite significant drop-offs in adult male viewers compared to last week.

Raw's m18-34 rating was down three-tenths of a rating compared to last week, the m18-49 rating was down nearly three-tenths, and males 12-34 was down one-and-a-half-tenths. Meanwhile, the unpredictable teen males 12-17 rating swung up three-tenths after swinging down five-tenths the previous week.
Like I noted before, the extra hour is hurting the third hour viewership. This is probably the new pattern WWE are looking at for rest of the year, until RTWM begins next year.
