Coming off the heels of the third and final hour of Monday's Raw broadcast suffering a fifteen percent drop in viewership, Comcast's listing for Monday programming on the USA Network (available at TVGuide.com) has a rerun of NCIS airing during the 8:00 p.m. time slot with Raw listed as a two-hour program beginning at 9:00 p.m.

The first hour of Monday's show garnered 4,147,000 viewers, with hour two slightly dropping 4,126,000. The third hour, however, suffered its sharpest decline since the program was lengthened to three hours in July, dropping to 3,488,000 viewers. It marked as the fifteenth consecutive week and eighteenth week out of nineteen weeks in which viewership dropped off during the third hour.
From nodq.com

High chance it's just a typo. But then there's a possibility that WWE are quietly reverting back to the 2 hour format. I would like it if they are but we'll have to wait and see. I still kinda like the idea of Raw being 3 hours. Before the shift I was really looking forward to it. There were some weeks when the 2 hours was up and I wished it was a little bit longer. But in the last month or two I've found that it's just not easy to watch 3 hours worth. Even when I don't watch it live and watch it later without commercials, I sometimes find it difficult to make it through that 2 hours and 15 minutes or so and begin to get tired and restless towards the end of the show.

I'm also just tired of looking at this thread every week and seeing the constant arguments of who is bringing in the ratings and who is bringing them down. I think the only time they had a good number for the third hour was the Punk/Vince match. The rest have been bad numbers, no matter who was put in that timeslot. It's clearly a problem of the product not being good enough to warrant a third hour. I still enjoy it every week. I certainly don't hate what the WWE is doing right now and like it a lot more than many people here, but I'm also beginning to struggle to make it through an episode.

I'm tired of trying to find people and other things to blame the low ratings on. PPVs still draw the same buyrates, sometimes slightly higher than past years. Smackdown still draws the same numbers. Raw is the flagship show and it's the only show losing people. It doesn't even have that much to do with the quality of the product. It's simply too long.

They should drop it to an hour & a half then cut out the filler & replays.

Raw deserves bad ratings, given how awful the writing/booking has been for a while now. Horrible storylines, lack of character development, random matches for no reason, etc.

I'm loving the twitter shots Dave Meltzer and CM Punk are taking at each other.

Is Raw moving back to 2 hours? Comcast listing for Monday has NCIS at 8 p.m., Raw at 9 p.m. @CMPunk #2.3 quarter hour

Dave Meltzer is the biggest bell-end in wrestling.

Punk and his marks pretend they don't care about the ratings but they really do. Punk does anyway. It eats at him that he gets messgaes on Twitter about it.

Punk has sunk Raw to 1995-1996 levels of shittiness. I think Vince has legitimately gone insane

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

Yeah, the Punk/Kane match before the overrun did a 2.28, one of the lowest quarters in RAW history. And the overrun did 2.6 so Punk now has probably the Top 7-8 worst overruns in company history.

In July I predicted that they're going back to 2 hours around December-January, looks like they're still not getting it. But if this pattern of the big third hour drop continues, they will have no choice. To drop 15% in a hourly breakdown in that time slot is crazy. It's only a matter of time.

As for MNW viewership, 10 million viewers on a weekly average is actually correct. When both Nitro and RAW were going strong at the same time. 10 million+ viewers every Monday for pro wrestling was pretty much the standard. For example on the memorable Rock/Foley/Nash/Hogan/FPOD night, both shows did a combined audience of over 13 million viewers.

Lol @ people thinking they are smart and cool just because they don't care about ratings.
