Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
They need a spark of something, anything, to get people talking and bring some urgency back to the product. Some big must see angle. When you think about it, there isn't actually any solid reason to watch Raw anymore. There isn't. It's completely missable and that's why so many people have tuned out over the past few months. Right now the only folks watching are the diehard, core audience that aren't going anywhere but even that has dropped from 4 million to 3 million since the 3 hour era began. 3 hours is simply too long to sustain that many viewers and it shows. Punk isn't helping matters by any stretch of the imagination but it sure as hell isn't his fault either. The only times they've managed to pull in new viewers has been for HHH's retirement speech and Vince/Punk last week, both of which were over the 5 million mark iirc. The audience is there if they have something interesting to watch. It's just a matter of providing a quality, entertaining and must see program from John Cena right the way down to Justin Gabriel.
