EARTH (WELL, AMERICA) TO VINCE MCMAHON, TIME TO WAKE UP RAW RATING

By Dave Scherer on 2012-01-10 18:05:48
The 1/9 edition of Raw did a 2.9 rating with 4,008,000 viewers. That is down from last week's 3.1 rating and 4,438,000 viewers. Once again, viewership dropped as the show went on as hour one did a 2.96 and hour two did a 2.77, and lost 176,000 viewers.

Before people point to the BCS Championship game on ESPN, while it did a 16.22 rating and 24,214,000 viewers, it was down about 15% from last year's game and by the end the game was a blowout so that would not explain people tuning out of Raw. Also, most of the broadcast networks ran repeats. So if Vince wants a reason as to why people left, let's try bad "horror" skits and having a guy unable to change a tire. It's a great place to start.
