Raw Draws Its Lowest Rating In Over 15 Years, This Week’s ‘JBL & Cole Show’

Posted by Matt Boone December 28, 2012 7 Comments

- Monday’s Christmas-themed episode of Raw featuring John Cena vs. Alberto Del Rio in a Miracle on 34th Street Fight and a Santa Claus injury angle drew a 2.2 cable rating, which marks as the show’s lowest rating of 2012 and in over 15 years. The last episode to draw a figure that low was the September 8, 1997 show, which featured Triple H vs. Savio Vega vs. The Patriot in the main event.

As reported earlier, Raw averaged 3.167 million viewers over the course of two hours, down from 4.23 million the week before for a show that drew a 2.9 cable rating. Hour one drew 2.94 million viewers, hour two drew 3.271 million viewers, and hour three drew 3.219 million viewers.

– This week’s The JBL & Cole Show, is now online, which features appearances from multiple guest stars. The synopsis reads, “Okay, so JBL doesn’t actually fire Michael Cole (we think), but this week’s episode is jam-packed with hilarity and guest stars. No. 1 ranked tennis player John Isner talks greatest Superstars of all time, The Great Khali learns to Tweet, Yoshi Tatsu learns to TOUT, and – oh, yeah! – “Mean” Gene makes a special appearance. All this and more on the latest episode of “The JBL & Cole Show!”

– Alberto Del Rio and Ricardo Rodriguez are signing autographs today at The Boost Mobile on 5718 W Fullerton in Chicago, Illinois 60639 from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m.

      Well that’s what happens when you present the product like this. It’s not interesting at all.

    • Lol

      What’s funny is normally WWE would blame other shows like the NfL for its poor ratings but there was no Monday Night Football game.

      well if you would get rid of the shield then your ratings would go back up.you ever think of that

      • askkethum

        The Shield had nothing to do with this weeks show this was for that crappy raw WITHOUT the shield.

    • sucka

      It was a crappy ass show. Luckily I taped it. Only watched around 3 mins of it…

      There wasnt a street fight.

      It should have been something like this :

      was a very bad show your going to insult peoples intelligence with that santa garbage and of course cena has to avenge santa vince is to comfy no competition no WCW’s in sight so this is what were stuck with hopefully with these ratings things will change

    • MRNC

      Santa’s accident, Khali’s gimmick, and Ziggler not wrestling is the reason why the ratings went down! If Ziggler interfered in the main event, then things would’ve been more interesting, with the Cena/Ziggler/AJ storyline! Also, Big E Langston was not used. This show completely sucked! Khali needs a GIMMICK CHANGE!
