At this point they probably only say that to generate a reaction or they probably base it on the entire rating for the show since Punk passed the segment gaining test.

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

2.15 quarter, absolutely laughable.

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?

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

So let's see this breakdown...

Starts off weak with the tag tourney finals, which isn't surprising, but it certainly wasn't good and didn't set a good tone for the rest of the show. Cena/Punk gaining a nice amount of viewers in a random quarter is good, but of course with the weak start, it might be expected. I have noticed though that that quarter might not be as random anymore, as since Vince returned a couple of weeks ago, it's been a quarter they've done some big things in (Vince/Punk a couple of weeks ago and last week Punk/Vince again). Maybe WWE is trying to get people used to tuning into that quarter as shows at 8:30 end. And hey, the segment this week gained 500,000 viewers, so it appears to be working to some degree. 9PM gained well and topped the night... which is sad considering the rating was a 2.91. Ryback/Miz losing 600,000 viewers, more than was gained in the previous quarter doesn't speak great things about Ryback's drawing ability, and it appears from what we've seen, he's no more consistent than Punk is, even with as hot he is right now.

Gains and losses follow, but damn at the lowest rating quarter. A 2.15... would that mean less than 3,000,000 viewers were watching that? Oh well... from the breakdown they wouldn't have missed anything. It was purely a filler quarter after all. Punk/Sheamus gaining a million viewers is very good, but the overall rating number, despite being above the average for the show, is still disappointing.

I'm watching you...

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

Punk vs Shameful WHC (a match where everyone in here says UUGGHH) + No Cena in the Main Event gets one of the best gains in recent memory...Although there were two unusual programms starting at 10.34 (DEBATE NIGHT IN AMERICA and ON THE RECORD W/GRETA which got 15mio viewers combined) + the football game still going at that time...that means about 25mio viewers watching other stuff and they still get a gain of 1mio+

Usually Im no "he draws/ he doesnt draw" guy, but that is something all the people blaming punk for the low ratings should think about

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

Looks to me more like a huge amount of people tuned out for the crap that came before the main event, look how low the previous quarter did, anything less than a big gain for the main event would've been terrible. Not saying this is any reflection on Punk or Sheamus at all just that when so many people tune out for the stuff before you are bound to get a good gain for the segment that follows (especially when it's the main event between your two world champions)

VIKRAM Man U, Bengaluru, India, 42 minutes ago

Oh my god newcastle people have such bad reputation in India . Vikram remembers when newcastle man ATTACK horse after game because he angry and drunk now I read daily mail today and see fight and violence in newcastle and one picture shows man wanting to fight horse. I don't know Newcastle apart from football team but they get reputation of animal attacker here

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

Punk/Sheamus gained like that because they just did one of the lowest quarters in RAW history in the beginning of the segment. The overrun was still one of the lowest overrun numbers in history. The lowest was probably 2-3 weeks ago. Vince started to copy Bischoff's WCW strategy and take 5-10 minutes overrun in 1998 BTW. So the lowest 1997 numbers against Nitro aren't a factor in this case.

The Ryback match was after the 9pm angle and was probably less than 5 minutes overall.

Vince/AJ/Vickie doing the biggest is not surprising, and not just because it was Vince in the 9pm segment. I actually thought that they're going to bring RIC FLAIR as the new GM. There's a chance that it's happening next week from his hometown, can only hope that they're doing another long and boring AJ/Vickie segment(although they always did good numbers on TV), suddenly WOOOOOOO! and the crowd explodes. Big potential. Ric Flair can save this program.

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

All i see from the ratings is that 3 hours is way too damn long, people only hang around that long for special 3 hour episodes, not regular ones. Go back to 2 hours and book with effort.

Not Removing Until:

John Cena faces Undertaker at Wrestlemania [ ]

Sheamus and Cm Punk are the 2 World Champions [X] -Wrestlemania 28

John Morrison wins World Title [ ]

John Cena losses cleanly [X]- Wrestlemania 28 Rock Beats John Cena

John Cena turns heel [ ]

Shawn Michaels returns for One More Match[ ]

Daniel Bryan beats a Main Eventer cleanly [ ]

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

The match between Ryback and The Miz lasted all of four minutes, immediately following that match they aired "Be A Star" video package with Stephanie and Otunga, following that backastage brawl with Eve, Layla and kaitlyn, following which josh mathews interview with Sheamus with his mattel toy. All of those lasted 12 minutes including the Ryback match. Daniel Bryan has already made his entrance two minutes before the quarter ended.

Also, agreed with Sandrone on the 8:30PM timeslot, seems like they are trying to establish that for big angles.
