Raw this past Monday, which was Labor Day, did a 3.0 rating. The first hour did a 2.9 for 4.3 million viewers and the second hour did a 3.0 for 4.1 million viewers. The fact that it was a holiday may have affected the numbers a bit here not to mention the Boise St - Virginia Tech college football game on ESPN. Pawn Stars and American Pickers debuted their new seasons as well. Pawn Stars is an amazing show that I"m a big fan of and there are definitely times for me that I'll click over when Raw isn't delivering. They're really going to have to step it up in the coming months because the NFL season is back and there will be a Monday night game every week until January. I expect that the numbers will end up hovering in the high 2's to low 3's. The 3.5 rating that came in for the 900th show could be the best they'll get for the rest of the year. Source
Hawkeye_heartattack and ConfederateHawk representing the Hawks at the Boise St - Virginia Tech game. Had a great time siting on the Boise St side (thanks, StubHub). We managed to get the flag up just in time as the ESPN skycam panned the jubilant (and completely unasuming) Bronco fans. Video here. (H/t IowaTailgate for the video)
Er, uh, am I seeing what I think I'm seeing? Oh, September 5th, why must you play so hard to get??? Thanks to EDSBS.
