3.8 in 2000? Wasn't that when they were normally getting 5.0's? 3.8 sounds like a poor rating for standards back then (and was it the lowest of the year)? Not saying it's a bad number, but the larger fanbase back then definitely had something to do with it.

In any event, terrible numbers, though it was in part due to it being on Christmas Eve (though only in part... with the way things are now, the numbers would've been terrible anyway).

I suppose I'll play the role of the blind Punk mark/hater this week and how the rating reflect his drawing ability.

DURRRRR PUNK WASNT ON SHOW 4 MORE THAN FEW MINUTES AND RATINGS SUCK! WE NEED MOAR PUNK!!!!!! MOAR BEESSSSSSSSSSST IIIIIIIINNNNNNNN THEEEEEEEEEEEEE WORRRRRRRRRRRRRLDDDDDDDDDDDDDD!

Edit: I am curious as to what the lowest rated segment was and what it got.

I'm watching you...

Yes, I agree. However, my point is that this proves that they were able to draw a good rating even if it was a holiday in the past. The fact that a lot of people now say "well it was a holiday, that's why it sucks" says to me that they're using that as a crutch to rely on. They've shown definitively in the past that they could overcome MNF and holidays, so the fact that they aren't now is a reflection of the product, not something else (as others might try to say).

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

2.2 rating, lowest since 1997

It may have been Christmas eve, but its still shows that people are losing interest.

With Rock coming back very soon, they probably won't see that for a bit.

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

Calm down. It was the Christmas Eve edition of RAW, and on top of that, most people who DID tune in probably tuned out after they saw the Santa getting hit by Del Rio's car shit. I expect record low viewership in the 18-64 demographic.

They shouldn't be worried. The Rock coming back will draw them back into the 2.9-3.3 range even with the 3 hours.

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

For those who are arguing that WWE shouldn't panic because The Rock is coming back soon, you seem to be missing the point slightly. Sure, ratings will most likely go up with Rock's return, but Rock will bring a certain fanbase to Raw, and then he'll take it away again post-WrestleMania. WWE need a LONG TERM fix to their troubles.

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

Love how people try and use the Xmas eve line. Pretty sure there are more people sat around watching TV at that period then bat any other. If not then why do they do Xmas specials? Add to that raw has been on eve before and not had those numbers.
There are many reasons why the rating was low but using Xmas as one of them is wrong.

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

When Rock comes back I start watching WWE again. Once he is gone then BOOM see ya in January 2014. Not watching shitty summer RAW again. I have learnt to watch RAW during Jan-Apr and once the Extreme Rules PPV is over leave until next year when they start giving a fuck again.

Me and my family were sitting around the TV watching other stuff we did see that RAW was on but nobody really cared same could be said for myself.
