-This week’s edition of RAW did a 3.7 ratings, with a 5.6 share. The shows respective hours did a 3.6 and a 3.8 rating. The highest rated segment was the overrun, which did a 3.9 rating. This is up from a 3.4 rating from last week.-
So the ratings this week was 3.7 with hours of (3.6, 3.8) which is up from the 3.4 (3.3,3.5) of last week.... Raw doesn't seem to have a big second hour overall jump anymore another strange thing is that the hightest rating which was the overrun only got 0.1 higher then the overall second hour and 0.2 higher then the average of the show. That's not very impressive.
**MNF did a pretty good number this week from 9 to 11 with a 11.2 (slighty up from last weeks 11.1)... The half hours kepting going up until 10:30 where half time hits 9-9:30= 11.3.. 9:30-10PM= 11.5.. 10-10:30= 11.7.. 10:30-11PM= 10.4. Last week 4 half hour breakdowns were (12.0, 11.6, 11.0, 9.6)
That's not all that surprising. When you don't have anything going on your program that is of great appeal to the casual fans, you're not going to see a big jump in the second hour. Goldberg now doesn't have the same lure that Austin or Rocky did at their peaks. The good news, though, is that 3.4 to 3.7 is a pretty decent jump, and even though it is only one week still has to be taken as a positive. The storytelling on Raw has been much better leading into Survivor Series, and hopefully they take this as a sign that consistency with angles one can follow is really what people want at the base of their show.
Here's a list of guys that either proved themselves in ECW before being picked up by WWF/WCW or they went to ECW to improve their stock while in between jobs in either WWF or WCW: Mick Foley, Chris Jericho, Chris Benoit, Eddy Guerrero, Rey Misterio Jr....
