    With one line, Chris Jericho just made me even more excited for the Royal Rumble.

    I always enjoy that numbers video package they show for the Royal Rumble.

    I remember when the take home episode of Raw was "must see TV." What the hell am I watching tonight?

    I'm really sorry, but I can't take Zack Ryder's injury seriously. I'm not trying to sound like a jerk or anything, but it looks to me like he landed on a soft floor or something.

    Looks like HHH will be in charge once again, and John will be leaving soon.


    Sorry, Johnny.

    Agreed.


    Well, I guess we'll be getting Chiapetta on Z! for a few weeks. You got your wish Speeps, as Ryder won't be having a major role on Raw for a while. Ryder went from jobber to US champ to "injured with a broken back, probably not to reapper on TV until after March", all in the span of a year.


    I want to say thank you, to Kane. Two whole weeks of "All-Business" John Cena. Thank god!

    Here ya go: courtesy of this fella.


    I quite liked this episode. The way it started with John knocking Punk down a peg was great. The matches, while not a lot, were good. The man who broke Zack's back was great. John's intensity was fun. Ziggler is no longer the future, he is the here and now. I hope he drops that stupid moniker 'the showoff'. I hate it. Good show for me.

    Thank you.

    The guy looks like he's about to turn Super Saiyan or turn green at any time. Say what you want about Cena, but that face is adorably hilarious.

    You're welcome.


    Viewer breakdown courtesy of LordsOfPain:


    - As noted before, the January 23rd WWE RAW Supershow did a 3.17 cable rating with 4.61 million viewers. This was the first RAW in a while with no nationally televised sports and the Male skew showed it at 68.1%. Ratings with Male Teens, Males 18-49 and Female Teens were also up.

    The opening angle with John Cena, CM Punk and John Laurinaitis did a strong 3.49 quarter rating but Punk and Cena vs. Jack Swagger and Dolph Ziggler lost 528,000 viewers - a bad loss for a segment with top stars like Cena and Punk. The Chris Jericho Highlight Reel segment also lost viewers - 287,000.

    Kane vs. Zack Ryder in the Falls Count Anywhere Match gained 601,000 viewers. Jinder Mahal vs. Sheamus lost 490,000 viewers while Heath Slater vs. Brodus Clay gained 35,000 viewers and The Miz vs. R-Truth lost 19,000 viewers. The ending segment with John Laurinaitis and CM Punk gained 761,000 viewers for a 3.54 overrun rating. This is normal growth for the overrun but better than usual for a segment with CM Punk.

    With the overrun, Male Teens went from a 2.7 to a 3.0 rating, Males 18-49 went from a 2.8 to 3.4, Female Teens went from a 1.1 to 1.2 and Women 18-49 stayed at a 1.2.
