There is a timer job that helps aggregate the results. It is possible that the job isn't running. Here is a blog post I previously wrote about enabling those jobs.

The rating isn't saved directly to the db. You have to enable at least the services described in the article http://codename-srini.blogspot.com/2010/04/how-to-use-rating-control-in-sharepoint.html

It might be saving, but it might be taking a long time, since the timer job is not scheduled to run at shorter time intervals by default. Follow the post above from @MikeOryszak and you should be able to see it within the scheduled interval.
