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

So the two feuding anti-draws together created a universe backlogic flip that caused a decent drawing 9pm segment.

I do have one question for anyone who might feel that Dwayne Johnson "owes" the business. Is it just him, or is it anyone who moved on to other things? Should Luna Vachon get heat for running a towing company instead of working on RAW? Should Maven be critiqued on his Home Shopping Network bits instead of wrestling?

Or is it only the ones who go on to highly visible careers in movies that owe something? Why do Johnson (who left after putting people over, doing the traditionally "right thing") and Lesnar (who did not; except for making Eddie a legitimate star) get called sell-outs who "forgot where they came from" when someone who retires to do some regular job get credit (as they should) for moving on and making it without falling into a sea of addiction?

How on earth did Ryback not draw, yet Phil and Randall put on a drawing clinic?

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

Well... 9PM gains in the number it usually does. 10PM does decently enough considering it's not been a big gainer in months, and the overrun was an average gain.

Punk/Orton and the match following with the two gaining is great, even if it was a very low gain and shows they had kept people's interest and others tuned in to check it out. Sheamus/Otunga had a good gain, but unless I'm incorrect in my math it's still under what the start of the show was, and for most of the shows since Raw 1000 the 8PM slot has been one of the weaker slots of the opening hour and the whole show. So Sheamus/Otunga's gain happened because nearly the same number of people tuned out the prior quarter.

I'm surprised they didn't see a large gain at least in the overrun with what happened to Lawler. Either people just couldn't bare watching the show anymore for the night after reading what happened to Lawler, or they just felt no need to. It's still an average overrun gain and the highest segment of the night I believe, but I guess I shouldn't have expected more when thinking more about it.

I'm watching you...

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

Well I think it has become official now. 9PM is the new 10PM. Punk/Orton did very well there and the following tag match. I don't really know what to say about the rest tbh. The overrun had a disappointing gain for a 2 hour show but I think this has become the norm for the 3 hour shows now? I don't know. Other than that it's a pretty boring breakdown. Nobody can fight over this one lol. BORING.

Yeah, but no one else will admit it.

Get used to the 2s, people. With football season just under way we'll be seeing a lot more of them.

Admit what? Punk with Bret Hart, Punk with Randy Orton and Punk with John Cena had the highest segments of the night? Shocker lol. Equal credit where it's due.
