11/19 RAW Breakdown: High Point Comes with Opener, More

– As noted before, the November 19th WWE RAW did a 2.73 cable rating with 3.83 million viewers. This would make it the fifth lowest rated episode of RAW and the fourth lowest number of viewers for a non-holiday episode in the last 15 years.

In the segment breakdown, a rarity came when the highest rated segment of the show was the Ryback interview and Ryback vs. Tensai, which did a 2.91 quarter rating. Wade Barrett vs. Kofi Kingston lost 298,000 viewers. A segment with Paul Heyman and CM Punk plus Kaitlyn vs. Aksana lost 80,000 viewers. Antonio Cesaro vs. Brodus Clay and the John Cena Make-A-Wish video gained 376,000 viewers back.

The segment with Vickie Guerrero, AJ Lee, Cena and Dolph Ziggler gained 195,000 viewers for a 2.85 quarter rating. This is a very low growth for the 9pm timeslot. Alberto Del Rio vs. Randy Orton in the 2 of 3 Falls Match lost 122,000 viewers. Primo and Epico vs. The Great Khali lost 186,000 viewers. The Miz vs. David Otunga gained 223,000 viewers. Sheamus vs. Damien Sandow gained 105,000 viewers in the 10pm timeslot.

The AJ Lee and Ziggler locker room segment that ended with the Cena and Ziggler brawl lost 241,000 viewers – not a good number considering it was one of their top angles right now. Kane and Daniel Bryan vs. Rey Mysterio and Sin Cara lost 266,000 viewers for a 2.50 quarter rating. The video package with highlights of the Cena-AJ stuff gained 101,000 viewers. The celebration for CM Punk’s 365th day as WWE Champion gained 419,000 viewers for a 2.87 overrun.

    Ryder got buried because he got himself over and Vince’s ego doesn’t allow for that.

    Its actually not cenas fault he wants to take a lot of time off but Vince won’t have tha shit. I rly don’t lik where or how the aj storyline is going. I watched the entire raw show and found it hard to focus at all. It rly sucks for ryder it seemed lik he was gonna help the tag division now he’s jus being used to push 3mb.

    AJ/Cena storyline is getting so boring and lame. I swear they’re just trying to recreate some twilight bs to capture a broader fan base. As soon as they got AJ involved with John Cena, I lost all interest in her. Cena is gonna bury AJ or whatever remaining momentum she has going for her just like he did with Zack Ryder (At one point the entire audience used to chant we want ryder like at Madison Square Garden, but seems like everyone forget about him). I hope Cena doesn’t bury Ziggler since Cena ALWAYS has to be the focal point of whatever storyline he’s in.
