WWE Raw on Monday, December 3 scored a 2.55 overall rating and 2.53 rating for the regular two-hour block. The overall rating was down 6 percent compared to a 2.72 rating last week.

Raw nearly scored a year-low, with only the October 22 episode scoring lower at a 2.49 rating.

- Raw averaged 3.44 million viewers (down 500,000 viewers/12 percent compared to last week). Hourly Break Down: 3.58 million first hour viewers, 3.37 million second hour viewers, and 3.36 million third hour viewers.

- On cable TV Monday night, Raw's second and third hours ranked behind "Pawn Stars" on History Channel. But, Raw finished #2 in the key male demos behind ESPN's huge audience for Monday Night Football, which pulled away male viewers.

Raw also took a big hit among adult women. Raw typically draws a 1.0 rating in the adult females demo, but this week's show scored a 0.7 rating in the demo.

Overall, Raw was defeated in adults 18-34, women 18-34, adults 18-49, and women 18-49 by a variety of programming on VH1 as well as the traditional Christmas Vacation movie on ABC Family.

- In the week-to-week demos, Raw hit year-lows in numerous categories. Included in the year-lows was Raw down four-tenths of a rating among males 12-34 & males 18-49, down nearly seven-tenths of a rating in males 18-34, down two-tenths of a rating among all adults 18-49, and down nearly four-tenths of a rating in adults 18-34.

Of course they do. They have an excuse every single week. The "excuses" make it so they never have to look at themselves and say "hey, what we're doing is not working, maybe we should go in a new direction."

The ratings don't lie. Punk is killing this company.
Disagree with this. He isn't single handedly killing the company, that's a gross misstatement. But as I've been saying all along, he certainly isn't helping matters either and I'd like to think that that has been proven at this stage. Obviously not...

They did all leave overnight, didn't they? Not only did THEY leave overnight, so did an extra few hundred thousand.

Raw 999 drew an average of 4.88 million.
Raw 1000 drew an average of 6 million.
Raw 1001 drew an average of 4.5 million.

Hence why Raw1001 has to be the most disappointing rating of the year as they threw absolutely, everything including the Punk/ Rock angle, at the returning audience in an attempt to hook them and came up with absolutely nothing.

The fans they've managed to lose since then are the "hardcore", the ones you have to work pretty hard to erode from the viewership.

I think the real question is whether anyone could help matters much, outside of one specific office.

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

It's a combination of all the factors that is hurting RAW:
- Monday Night Football
- MMA
- Wrestling is no longer "cool" or popular.
- The booking/writing is poor & lacks continuity.
- No one has any heat.
- There aren't any stars.
- The titles don't mean anything.
- The wins/losses don't mean anything.
- The show is too long.
- People don't want their intelligence insulted.
- There aren't any fresh match-ups & WWE runs everything into the ground.
- There's no reason to watch each week. Nothing ever changes. There are no consequences or cliff hangers.
- There is no emotional investment, either positively or negatively, for anyone on the entire roster.\
- Too many ads, replays, recaps & media whoring.

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

Not surprised at all.. there was no heat heading into the night and nothing really happened. You had some potential in the first hour before it went right back to the same ole fuckery. That is hte problem... there is no logic or sense in the WWE. Nothing happens for a reason... or if it does, that reason is quickly tossed away. They need to bring back sensible, sustained booking. Until then, the numbers will not improve. Simple as that.

Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace


Raw is like watching Dexter's finale every week... why did I do that to myself for so long?

Who knows? But they might as well try, rather than keep pushing a guy who hasn't drawn the entire time he's been champion.

What have the WWE got to lose by pushing someone else instead of CM Cunt?
