Hour 1: 2.379
Hour 2: 2.503
Hour 2: 2.478


Lowest rated hour was the FIRST hour. <img src="http://www.wrestlingforum.com/images/smilies/roflmao.gif" border="0" alt="" title="ROFLMAO" class="inlineimg" /> Hour 3 actually outdrew Hour 1. <img src="http://www.wrestlingforum.com/images/smilies/roflmao.gif" border="0" alt="" title="ROFLMAO" class="inlineimg" /> <img src="http://www.wrestlingforum.com/images/smilies/roflmao.gif" border="0" alt="" title="ROFLMAO" class="inlineimg" /> <img src="http://www.wrestlingforum.com/images/smilies/roflmao.gif" border="0" alt="" title="ROFLMAO" class="inlineimg" />
Hour 3 should have been highest they had lots in that battle royal. I'll LMAO if next week they are low 2s after bringing back everyone alive from the past

Brock "I dont make a difference in ratings" Lesnar as Champion had the worst first hour compared to the other two. How the hell did Hour 3 outdraw the first hour? That is baffling.

That's nearly impossible. Hour 3 is almost never the highest rated hour. It's happened before, but not often. The fact that it's not the lowest rated hour is funny.

Seth has been the most pushed guy on raw for the last 9 months. His ratings baby was due and it looks like it was stillborn. 8*D :Cocky

FYI, the PPV bump this year was 90K viewers.

The PPV bump this time last year was 400K viewers.

SAVE US BORK LAZER

:brock

2.4 million is the floor for this part of the season, it seems. They came off a PPV with multiple title changes and that's the number for HOUR 1?! Somebody call my mama!

There's really no reason to think Brock would ever bump the ratings in any big way. His act has been stale for years and even if his fans don't want to see it, it's still pretty obvious to everyone else.
Yet its not obvious to the people that matter

I wonder if Hour 1 has ever been the lowest rated hour since Raw went 3 hours. Or, is this is the first time this has happened? I honestly don't know. I can't believe it happened last night, though.

I'm certain its happened, but its really, really rare. Might happen 5 or 6 times all year that hour 3 does better than hour 1, its a ten to one shot.

Hour 2 doing better than hour 1 is rarer still, I bet.

That first hour eats ass.

Lesnar is really here to, in Heyman's words, "beat, victimize and conquer" the ratings :lol

Vince is wasting his money with Lesnar.
I don't think I've ever seen so much investment for such little return in this industry.

The words of a certain ex Shield member are coming to mind.

Hour 2 being higher than Hour 1, or being the highest hour of the show, is not uncommon. It's not the usual trend but a few weeks a year there is always a high Hour 2. Most of that is because 9:00pm can often be when there are the most available viewers in general.

Hour 3 NOT being the lowest hour of the show is very uncommon though. Hours 1 and 2 can switch places, but they are often never the lowest rated hour.

Guy isn't even a top 5 merch seller doubt he is even top 10 and hardly does live shows or any media.
They are probably paying him more money than Peak Cena, when Cena did so much more for the company, its hard to even comprehend. Yeah, Cena had the plum, cushy gig and rockstar booking, but man, WWE rode his ass HARD. Cena did 50 times over for WWE what Brock does in terms of dates, appearances, movies, cross-promotion, interviews, charity, etc EASILY.

Funny I predicted before Raw

Raw deserves sub 1 million viewers tonight. However when ratings come out Tuesday afternoon and we see about an 80-100k increase in viewership the 5 Lesnar Marks on here will go "ratingz" when the post PPV usually sees a slight increase.


That's weird.

I was told for months that crowning a new world champion and that Brock Lesnar would save the ratings.

Either way, I still blame Vince for his mediocre shows.
Exactly couldn't have agreed more.

They’re really looking to next week’s Reunion show for that big ratings bump, but still, there should’ve been a Brock + fallout bump here from the PPV and it doesn’t really look like it’s there.

Putting the belt back on Brock is a retread to a story they’ve been telling for the last 5 years. If Heyman being in charge means more Brock, then no matter what talent he has as a promoter, he’s going to have a major challenge ahead of him, because we’ve seen this story over and over and over again. Brock’s been champ, Brock’s been beaten, Brock’s had the briefcase, Brock’s been champ again, etc.

He’s barking up the wrong tree, especially if they’re gunning for Reigns vs Brock yet again.

The main event actually retained the viewers, color me surprised, I thought that after that womens match they would leave.
I’m not surprised. I remember when they had a number one contenders match early in the year and it drew well in hour 3.

Hour 1: 2.379
Hour 2: 2.503
Hour 3: 2.478


Lowest rated hour was the FIRST hour. :lmao Hour 3 actually outdrew Hour 1. :lmao :lmao :lmao
To me that’s a good thing. I think the audience is getting more and more casual to where they don’t know the PPV results and just tune in to see what’s up (ie don’t care enough to look them up). If you can regularly do a trend where you are building viewers instead of shedding viewers that’s a positive.

But but but I was told that Brock is a huge huge huge draw in 2019!

You mean it was just dickriding all along? HOL-YEE SHEETTT!
Nah, that’s disingenuous. This thread IMO has been pretty consistent in saying Brock is their biggest star but they intentionally gave him bad heat in the hopes of helping Roman and now he’s a damaged product. Now that the product is dying they panic and go back to him which is understandable but the damage has been done..

What people have been calling for is one of the more charismatic guys to get a chance like say Elias. Brock having the title is better than Seth but at this point it’s not by much. But Seth was totally dead. At least with Brock if you try something new with him maybe you have a chance.
