From PWinsider -This week's edition of Raw did a 3.6 cable rating, with a 6 share. That is up from last week's 3.4. The show did hours of 3.4 and 3.8 (counting the 23 minute overrun).
The high point of the show was the 4.2 that they did from 10 to 10:15 p.m. The show then went down from there with the 10:15 quarter doing a 3.9 and the quarters kept dropping by a tenth of a point until the second overrun ended up with a 3.5.-
So Raw did a 3.6 with hours of [3.4 & 3.8,(4.2-5Q)] up from last weeks 3.4 [3.2 & 3.6,(4.0-OR]... It brings a frown to my face seeing that the main event didn't do better.
June 17, Smackdown Rating
From PwTorch -Last night's Smackdown drew a 3.0 Nielson Media Research rating, down from the 3.1 rating the week before. The show began with a 2.4 quarter hour and ended with a 3.5 quarter hour rating, growing each quarter hour other than an 0.1 drop in Q7-
Smackdown did a 3.0 with hours of (2.7 & 3.3) down from last weeks 3.1 (2.9 & 3.1)... Even though the number is a bit down it was still 4th amoung the networks. The second hour actually came really close to NBC (Will&Grace/Scrubs) hour as SD was only 0.5 behind NBC at 9PM.
IF they did WCW/WWE, would that mean the end of the brand extension or will the battle be limited to RAW? If booked properly, any retarded angle can get over. Especially if a great match(es) is the pay off.
