RAW Rating Is In, More On IMPACT! Rating, Carwin Tries To Friend Lesnar & More
By Raj Giri | March 23, 2010
-- According to ProWrestling.net, last night's episode of WWE Raw drew a 3.24 rating, down significantly from the 3.7 rating the show drew last week, and the 3.4 drawn the week before. The first hour did a 3.04 rating with 4,141,000 viewers, while the second did a 3.44 rating with 4,869,000 viewers. That's the lowest number for the final Raw before WrestleMania that I can remember.
-- As noted earlier, TNA iMPACT! did a 0.86 rating. The show peaked with a 0.96 quarter hour for the conclusion of the Mick Foley - Jeff Jarrett match. The lowest rated segments were the opening segment, which drew a 0.79 rating, and the quarter hour which saw the conclusion of the angle involving Sting, Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, Abyss and The Pope to set the main event for Lockdown, which did a 0.76. Obviously, neither WWE nor TNA can be happy with last night's numbers.
-- What do you guys think TNA should do about iMPACT? Should they move up an hour? Should they go back to Thursday nights? We have a thread going on our forums about this, you can go to the thread by clicking here.
