- As noted before, the February 27th RAW Supershow with The Rock’s return did a 3.14 cable rating with 4.64 million viewers. This was down from the previous week and a disappointment considering it was the hyped return of The Rock.
This week’s show did a 2.7 with Male Teens (down from 4% last week), a 2.7 with Males 18-49 (down 3%), a 1.1 with Female Teens (down 8%) and a 1.2 with Women 18-40 (up 9%).
In the segment breakdown, the CM Punk and Chris Jericho opener started with a 3.22 quarter rating. Punk vs. Daniel Bryan lost 289,000 viewers. The video package for Triple H vs. The Undertaker gained 526,000 viewers and did a 3.38 quarter rating, which is a great number because video packages usually lose viewers. Kelly Kelly vs. Nikki Bella lost 816,000 viewers.
The Miz vs. John Cena gained 388,000 viewers and did a 3.09 quarter rating – a bad number for the 10pm timeslot. Jack Swagger & Dolph Ziggler vs. R-Truth & Kofi Kingston vs. Primo & Epico for the Tag Team Titles lost 221,000 viewers while the Eve Torres in-ring segment gained 225,000 viewers back. Big Show and Sheamus vs. Cody Rhodes and Mark Henry gained 3,000 viewers.
The Rock’s promo at John Cena gained 643,000 viewers to a 3.53 quarter rating, which is nothing really special for the overrun. John Cena coming out to cut a promo and The Rock closing the show lost 349,000 viewers. The show finished with a 3.30 quarter rating, which likely came as a surprise to officials.
