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

It's an increase over last week's year low rating, this is not bad. Not at this time with RAW being 3 hrs and MNF to compete with.

What they should be concerned about is the third hour viewership imo. It looks like with the new three hour format they have effectively managed to kill that viewing pattern where we have a big gain at 10 pm and the main event. I think this is what Dave Meltzer talked about when 3 hrs was first announced, comparing with wCw and how they burned out their viewers with three hours. If Vince Mcmahon is planning on going back to two hours, then better do it before its too late.

After consecutive dip in Raw is Le Punk viewership,that registered the lowest rating in over 15 years,Punk all by himself managed to push Raw near the 4 million viewership mark i.e without any sort of help from part timers or King Guan Sena.

It's not an excuse. They've been competing with MNF since the show started. Even 6 years ago(which isn't too long ago) they were getting almost a point higher, sometimes more . 3 hours is too much but stop using football as an excuse when they've done much better ratings before this era took place.

He was on the biggest draws in the AE. Im big a fan of Austin but lets not forget what Vince did for Austin. They both made it what it was worth back then. In 2009 people notice the big ratings that's because of Vince and his family lets be honest here without them Raw will suck in that year.

This is especially true now that he only appears once every few months nowadays.

But I do wonder how well the Punk/Vince segments did since Vince was advertised to some extent in both of them. We knew 10 minutes ahead of time Vince would be appearing, as well as it being advertised for several days prior to that, and the match was heavily advertised and the replay of Punk slapping Vince was shown several times throughout the night. Plus Cena kicking off the show which was announced ahead of time... and yet they still only mustered a little over 4 million viewers, and actually the 3rd hour is still down from hour 1 despite that big advertised main event (though that's why I'm very interested in the breakdown, to see how well Punk/Vince did). I suppose though hour 1 had the Cena promo, Ryback match, and Punk/Vince so it would naturally have the highest average number. Don't remember too well what was in hour 3 besides Punk/Vince anyway.

I'm watching you...

Larry King/Kofi/Miz, Rhode Scholars vs Ryder/Cobra, Eve vs Kaitlyn were the first 3 quarters of hour 3. Last quarter was Bryan/Kane/Kings backstage & Punk/McMahon

This is why I don't get why so many clueless yokels try arguing that Punk is the sole reason for the bad ratings. Look at this, even getting desperate and putting Vince in there and getting Cena involved and we get a relatively minor ratings increase that STILL can't break a 3.0. That's also why I don't understand the ridiculous "last week was the lowest drawing Raw in 15 years, its all Punk's fault" shit either. Its not exactly like they had very far to fall for that to happen. Now they pull out all the stops and still only manage to pull off a 2.8, which is still really unimpressive. What's the excuse gonna be this week? Global warming? The 1992 L.A. riots? Malaria? Communism?

Face it, wrestling just isn't a hot product these days, and the only remedy is building it up again to the point of greatness, not this once in a while going all out for one night of ratings that don't suck as badly and the rest of the time its the same old shit (ie. the formula they currently use). This problem didn't just happen overnight, and its not going to be fixed that quickly either. In both cases, we're talking years here.
This thread is no place for sense and logic. GTFO!

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

Context. Always second or third for monday nights on cable. On the second most expensive ad day in television. Not only does USA make big ad bucks from RAW's time slot but I guarantee USA uses RAW as major leverage during reups of subscription fees with cable distributors. Something they could never replace with original content or a syndicated show. Ratings aren't the problem, not even close.
