-This week's edition of Raw did a 3.4 cable rating, with a five share, according to Nielsen Media Research. That is down from last week’s 3.7. Both hours did a 3.4. The highest quarter hour of the show came at 10:00 p.m. and did a 3.7, which was the Shane McMahon segment-
So this weeks show did a 3.4 with hours of(3.4, 3.4) down from last weeks 3.7 hours of (3.5,3.8)
This is actually sad in a few instances. The second hour equaling the first hour is a horrible sign. They didn't give out the overrun but it being under 3.7 is just bad. Hell even the 3.7 for the 10PM Q-hour, which usually gets a high jump (2nd only to the overrun) is not great shakes.
I adore Jericho but this is not a good sign. It's kind of strange, because he does so well at 10PM (like I said the 2nd most important spot of the show). When he's on the midway of the show the 10PM rating usually jumps really strong (more then normally) but when he's put in the main event spot recently (ie match with Goldberg and now this week) it doesn't deliever.
But then again,I thought this weeks show was a way step down compared to last weeks show overall.
**MNF had a pretty weak game and didn't do a great number this week either doing a 10.3 (down from 11.0 last week) from 9 to 11... MNF Half hour breakdowns were 9-9:30= 10.6.. 9:30-10PM= 11.0.. 10PM-10:30= 10.8.. 10:30-11PM= 8.8. Last weeks 4 half hour breaksdowns were (11.7, 11.4, 11.4, 9.5)
I swear I could make the Pokemon idea work. Bring in the other half of the Minnesota Stretching Crew (Shelton Benjamin or something like that) and rename him Ash whatever. Rename Stacy as Misty Keibler. Dress up Heyman as Pikachu. THE POKEMON STABLE!
