- 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.

    Kane, Ryder and Brodus Clay SELL! They sell I tells ya!

  • Chael Sonnen: True Middleweight Champion

    or maybe it’s the fact that the fans aren’t stupid and realise how everything with Cena in it is going to end. He’ll get his ass beat for 10 minutes then “Hulk Up” to the delight of the 9 year olds, hit an AA, slap on the STF, and win the match.

  • Whatever

    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.

    well, it’s not weird if you plan a tag team match AGAIN, AGAIN and AGAIN…
