I'll give them credit: Back to back weeks with above 4 rating overall, and 4 or better for each hour. Now, they have 5 weeks to capitalize on this before Monday Night Football and Fall Network Line-ups begin. They've made a good start, whether they can maintain the momentum is the key question.
Will the woman who left her nine infants at Shea Stadium, please pick them up. They already scored six in the first off Tom Glavine, and know more letters of the alphabet than John Franco.
Originally posted by InVerseThe overrun is the part where ppl tune in expecting to see an animated Pamela Anderson stripping and instead get a giant bald guy getting pushed off a stage, right?
Yeah, because Stripperella is doing AMAZINGLY in the ratings actually.
Caped Boy: Excuse me, ladies. You may remember me as the guy who came to dinner a few weeks ago with underwear on my head. My name is Keith Stat from Milbourne, New Jersey. State bird, the mosquito. And as you may have heard I am recently a crowned class B dungeon-master. So if any of you would like to play D&D today, please speak now or forever hold your peace. [He chuckles, and there is an awkward silence at the table.] Caped Boy: Anyone? Alexa! [Alexa gives him a withering glare.] Caped Boy: Maybe you would like to join in? We do need a druid, and you have definitely cast a level 5 charm spell on me. Alexa: In your dreams, douche-bag! Caped Boy: Douche-bags are hygienic products, I take that as a compliment. Thank you. [Keith walks off] Alexa: Ewww!
People know the last ten minutes of the show should be hot (in theory.) I've always taken the over run number as being the number of people who tuned in and out during the show and who came back to see how it ends. (See also, Nitro's over run numbers when the show was followed by... the same Nitro.)
This week's show was a real snoozer. I don't think their four point run will continue next week.
this is 3 out of 4 weeks that RAW has done a 4.2 in tthe ratings. I think it could continue too! While this wasnt the best RAW it did end hot with the return of Shane Mcmahon and promoted Goldberg vs Ric Flair for next week. It's been awhile since RAW has done this well. lets hope it continues!
What I'm most impressed with is the 4.0 first hour. Seems like they have a solid 4.0 people watching the entire show which is a very good to build on.
I don't know about next week, the first 90 minutes was real uneventful. It wasn't bad or awful or offensive or anything just really mediocre, I wonder how it will effect next weeks number... Next weeks match of Goldberg/Flair could go either way. I'm a huge fan of Flair, don't really know if he's a draw anymore and as for Goldberg with the exception of his first TV match vs. Christian in the steelcage I can't really remember him drawing a huge number.
But hey, WWe are in dire need of any positives so this is a nice sign. Let's hope they don't get lazy which I kind of felt from this past weeks show
cause there's limits to our liberties. 'Least I hope and pray that there are, cause those liberal freaks go too far.
I'll crush all opposition to me And I'll make Ted Kennedy pay If he fights back, I'll say that he's gay
Other posters spring to mind... last year's Invasion featured Vince/Shane, with nary a mention of ECW, Steph, Paul Heyman or the main event. Unforgiven had the Three-Headed Austin, another event that didn't happen...
