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

DAT 2.0 ERA - If you can't get behind this you'll be left behind...along with everybody else who stopped watching

Panic button indeed. While the 3 hour format certainly isn't helping matters, the fact that viewership for the first 2 hours and in general is thatlow is flat out terrible. The third hour has become something of a scapegoat it seems. If it weren't there I imagine things would be marginally better but not by much. If people really wanted to tune in and the only issue they had was the third hour/length of the show we'd see normal numbers for the first 2 hours and then a big drop off towards the end. That isn't happening. Like I said last week, they're starting shit and ending worse. I doubt even Rock can do anything to save the entire show tbh. It's a top to bottom issue with everything flowing from the top of the card down. When the top of the card isn't producing the goods, nobody else stands a chance, hence the complete haemorrhaging of viewership over the past few months. It's crazy to think that 6 million people saw CM Punk lay out the Rock in July and since then just over half of them are still watching. Crazy.

WARNING: PANIC BUTTON HAS BEEN ACTIVATED. FIVE. FOUR. THREE. TWO. ONE....

Awful numbers. Awful.
I try to stop myself from posting in this crazy thread, but i have got to say, jesus christ!

Horrific numbers. If that doesn't prove to them that what they are currently doing is shit, then nothing will.

Cena is crap.

Are they taking any orders for the "Rise & Fall of the WWE" DVD yet?

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

It doesn't help that they never announce anything in advance for next week anymore. The booking is so on-the-fly and scattered that everything has to happen in one night. Give people at least a morsel of incentive to sit through these marathon Raws.

I'm a Brock Lesnar Guy.

You know you're in bad shape when you're getting beat in viewership by Teen Mom II.

So this is going to be lower than their 15-year record low of 3.5?

Tumblin' down, tumblin' down.

DAT triangle of mediocrity: "Smackdown Killer" Sheamus, Useless AJ Lee, and Casey Ryback

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)

I doubt they care as much as they would if this were during any other time of the year. They know once Punk/Rock starts, the buzz will come back. Starbuck mentions that 6 million people saw Punk lay out the Rock. Well, they clearly didn't leave over night. That was six months ago, the viewers fizzled out because the product is in a garbage state right now. This Ryback project is a fail, and it's a shame that Cena got injured because if Punk/Cena carried on I doubt the product would be as shitty as it is right now. We would have had at least something worth watching. Right now, there is nothing. Not until Rock comes back.

God, Punk/Rock can't come soon enough.






best.

The problem is not the 3 hours format. The problem is the PG Era. They have to realize that this crap era is hurting their product...
