I stand by my declaration that 3rd hour RAW is one of the worst decisions in this company history and in conjunction with the WWE Network fiasco is potentially company killing. Did anybody in the 1980s and 1990s conceive of a world without WCW? Here are the facts. October 15, 2012 was the lowest rated RAW since spring 1997. Fact. It was the lowest rated non-holiday RAW in over 15 years. This week marks the 15th consecutive week where hour 3 had fewer viewers than hour 2. 15th consecutive week. Let that sink in. The most crucial hour of programming with all the big angles and an overrun loses viewers. Not only that, the gap is getting larger. This week's Hour 2 Versus Hour 3 Gap? Take a guess. I'm putting the spoiler of the gap. Just try to take a guess. Spoiler Hour 2 - 4.126m Hour 3 - 3.488m 638,000 viewers stopped watching RAW. My God. It has to end. This is a huge failure.
