Raw Ratings & Viewership Archive

  • Galactus

    Raw is too long. I typically watch it until the end but it is a struggle

  • Bob’s Diner

    That’s what happens when you leave off the Funkadactyls!

  • Scott Davies

    Super Cena in a handicap match just killed Raw to me.

  • dektpunx

    seems like that last hour always loses people no matter how awesome or shitty the last segment is

  • Karen Keener

    I DVR it anymore. Too long and I don’t want to sit through when they re-hash things in the 2nd and 3rd hours that happened in the first hour

  • eskymi

    I watch on DVR and just fast forward the crap, but I don’t think that has any affect on ratings. Also, the last hour seems to drop every week, but I am sure the powers that be will look at it and say that it is because of DB and CM Punk being in the main event.

    Some will blame SUper Cena, some will say its’ cause Orton is champ and he stinks, some will say it’s because the show is too long. But TPTB will say it’s that we fans don’t want the smaller guys in the main event and sadly the guys we wanna see will be sent back to mid card hell.

  • M.C. Elroy

    The last hour also scored the highest 18-49 rating compared to the first two. This proves the fact that the “mature” and “intelligent” audience continue to tune in for the wrestlers that are worth watching right now, while the little kiddies and casual fans only tune in for the “mainstream stars.”
