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

Punk/Cena/Heyman is drawing so far. Good to see. Kane and Bryan is so hot, they're a bonafide draw.

Miz TV also drawing good numbers, too bad Miz didn't come off too well.

Edit: Missed the part about the post match for Bryan/Kane. Shame the hugging did so poorly, I thought it was an excellent bit. I think hug it out has run it's course though, can't see them doing it passed next week. Their's still interest in the tag titles though as the match gained a shit load of viewers.

I agree they should keep it for house shows & even PPVs. But when the fans keep chanting it than Kane & Bryan feel they have to oblige (which they are doing). I notice they are doing it only when the fans start chanting "hug it out"

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

Punk/Cena/Heyman stuff is drawing "well" (compared to the rest of the show at least). That being said the overrun gain, while a huge gain, wasn't that high of an overall number. Plus they had been going down all throughout the third quarter, and just as I feared, Sandow/Ryder was a very low rating.

But oh well. The show felt like a true filler show. Even the Punk/Cena/Heyman stuff didn't really progress much if at all. They have 5 weeks left before HIAC, and it wouldn't surprise me if they drag as much stuff out as long as possible. It wouldn't surprise me if next week and even the week after are similar to this show in little to no storyline progression. Maybe at the end of Raw in 2 weeks is when they'll announce Punk/Cena HIAC.

I'm watching you...

*Buck is right on the overrun. Not impressive at all.

Just getting all the viewers back then lost in the final hour.

Good opener for Paul E and Cena. Other than that terrible numbers all over the show including the overrun. One thing is that viewers officially got the new start time.

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

Whoa, whoa, whoa...

I just took another look at Raw. I began my recording at 8:00pm sharp, so my counter was accurate.

Reading this, I'm highly amused:

"All the post-match with Bryan & Kane with the hugging lost 169,000 viewers and thatís at the 10 p.m. hour, doing a 2.78 quarter. Thatís disastrous at that time of the show, as usually thatís growth and then people tune out. Thatís the second time theyíve done the big long drawn out hugging spot in a key time slot and both times itís bombed."

Um... no. Or, as Daniel Bryan might say, "No! No! No!"

The Bryan/Kane "overrun" and that is what I am calling it, because that is essentially what it was--an overrun from the 9:45pm-10:00pm quarter hour--lasted, at most, three and one half minutes past 10:00pm. What followed that? A tedious "Be A Star" video package with Big Show telling kids to not be bullies and be nice to one another, and a big, long commercial break until about 10:08pm or so, at which time Randy Orton started to come out for the Orton/Tensai match, which concluded at 10:17pm, or thereabouts, overrunning from the 10:00pm-10:15pm quarter hour into the 10:15pm-10:30pm quarter hour.

That makes this "analysis" of the next quarter hour's "failing," or whatever one wishes to call it, all the more amusing:

"Randy Orton vs. Tensai lost 150,000 viewers."

Um... what? As I just stated, Orton/Tensai went into the 10:00pm-10:30pm quarter hour by... a whopping two fucking minutes. Who writes this shit?

As for the 10:00pm-10:15pm quarter hour, is it really such a risky proposition to make the assumption that the primary cause for the ratings hemorrhage was the overlong, boring "Be A Star" video package and lengthy commercial break, rather than the 210 seconds (or so) of Kane and Bryan doing their "Hug It Out" shtick after the tag team match with Air Truth? And maybe, just maybe, nobody gives a damn about Tensai. But even so... Blaming Orton/Tensai for the loss in the 10:15pm-10:30pm quarter hour is simply hilariously off the mark, too, as that match concluded at approximately 10:17pm. That leaves thirteen whole minutes in that quarter hour to be held in judgment and/or analysis.

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

DESO WITH DEM NUMBERS lol. They get what actually happens in the quarters wrong all the time now it seems though, unless it's obvious that something took up the entire 15 mins, commercials and video packages need to be taken into consideration I guess, along with that dominated each quarter too.

Oh Deso, please send that to Dave Meltzer. For the lol's.

Hour 1 - 4.111m
Hour 2 - 4.119m
Hour 3 - 3.925m

Quarter Hours - September 17th, 2012
Q1 - 4.455m
Q2 - 4.051m
Q3 - 4.034m
Q4 - 3.905m
Q5 - 4.286m
Q6 - 4.133m
Q7 - 3.655m
Q8 - 4.017m
Q9 - 3.848m
Q10 - 3.698m
Q11 - 3.529m
Q12 + Overrun - 4.352m

I can only assume Q7 had three commercials in it, because you cannot blame a two minute segment for an anomaly like that.

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

Do commercials really lower numbers? During the 1000th ep, the Bryan segment drew 400k (iirc) and they went to a break. When Rock came out the gained another 500k. The ads didn't lower the numbere there.
