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

It is funny to me that Monday Night Football has become a bit of an accepted ratings killer for the WWE every year and that assessment is certainly valid.

However, it is worrisome to me that the hit from MNF seems to get worse every year. I never thought the WWE would find themselves having Raw go down under a 3.0 multiple weeks in a row.

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

Tbh WWE isn't just US, it's also worldwide and I wouldn't put to much thought on the ratings purely from America, when elsewhere it's viewed a lot. When they say they are trending on twitter..it's because worldwide they really are because worldwide in different time zones it's not competing against anything. Yes ratings in US do count for that market but it's not the only part of the company.

Not to mention under 3.0 ratings WITH Vince AND Cena.

Last night did feel different though. After the filler first half hour, from the Punk/McMahon segment to the end, the show had a different feel, IMO.
In alot of ways the RA was alot edgier than the AE. Just saying, bugs me how people say the AE was smuttier.

There wasn't any HLA, One legged wrestlers being pushed down stairs, Corpse shagging etc. in the AE.

Raw just needs to go back to 2 hours. It was so much more enjoyable with out all the crappy filler. That's really what's killing it and nothing else TBH. If Vince can't see that he's a F'n moron.

Breakdown:

Quote:
-Raw opened strong with the Cena segment followed by the Ryback match. Clay/Truth dancing lost 746,000 viewers. Vince/Punk segment gained 891,000 viewers, which was a great gain considering they not only got the viewers they lost back, but they also got more viewers on top of that. Certainly the best gain for an odd quarter in a while. Mysterio and Cara facing Prime Time Players only lost 415,000 viewers. Not too bad considering they were coming off a huge gain.

The 9PM match of Barrett facing Sheamus gained 318,000 viewers, which is a below average gain. Cesaro/Kidd lost 974,000 viewers, a terrible loss. Team Hell No against Ziggler and Del Rio gained 357,000 viewers, which is to be expected after the major loss by Cesaro and Kidd.

Larry King and Miz/Kofi in the 10PM slot lost 147,000. This has come to be expected in recent weeks with the 10PM slot being a normal loser. The big story and surprise is the gain for Sandow and Rhodes facing Ryder and Santino in the tag tournament. Our intellectual savior of the masses Mr. Sandow and that guy he teamed up with facing the two biggest ignoramuses on the roster gained 9,976,000 viewers. People are clearly starting to accept Sandow's enlightening and tuned in the second they heard he was competing. Civilization may be saved yet. The divas title match after lost 11,072,000 viewers, which is to be expected after the greatest talent on the roster parted from the screen. Punk facing Vince gained 2,000,000 viewers exactly in the overrun.

I'm watching you...

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

Almost two segments that nearly lost a million viewers...sweet candy coated Jesus.

Vince is flexing his ratings guns. I'm sure a lot of people tuned in for Punk as well. Both men contributed to awesome gains (if that 2 million is legit, can't tell with all of Sandrone's embellishment :P).
