- As noted before, Monday’s WWE RAW Supershow from Cleveland did a 3.29 cable rating with 4.84 million viewers. RAW was the #1 show on cable for the night and unlike recent trends, it did better in the second hour – largely due to the segment with Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker.

Sheamus vs. Dolph Ziggler lost 6,000 viewers coming out of the opener with John Cena rapping. That’s a good loss as usually the second RAW segment loses several hundred thousand viewers. David Otunga & Mark Henry vs. Santino Marella gained 225,000 viewers – also a good number and a good sign for the Teddy Long vs. John Laurinaitis storyline.

Brodus Clay vs. Jinder Mahal lost 276,000 viewers while the segment with Michaels and Undertaker gained 869,000 viewers to a 3.73 quarter rating. This is the best quarter on RAW in several weeks. CM Punk vs. The Miz then lost 888,000 viewers – which is the biggest segment drop in a while.

Jack Swagger vs. Randy Orton gained 58,000 viewers. The final segment with The Rock singing gained 509,000 viewers, which is actually below average for an overrun. It did a 3.51 quarter rating. The final segment with The Rock went from a 3.1 to a 3.8 rating with Males 18-49, from a 2.3 to a 2.7 in Teen Males, from 1.3 to 1.4 in Women 18-49 and stayed at a 1.1 rating for Teen Females.

    ROFL @ Dave!
    I’d say you’re right!

    I’ve stopped caring about Cena and the Rock until they actually fight. It’s the same worked shoot material every week, singing, rapping, or whatever. This whole thing has seriously lost what momentum it had gained. They started the hype train way too early, and now it’s just a boring circus with nothing actually happening.

    The one time there was even a hint things might get physical, when Rock got into Cena’s face, Cena just stood there smiling like he’d gotten a new puppy.

    I bet if they made the show 100% NON wrestling the rating would be huge

  • CM Mark

    @ALUCARD

    Oh yeah I KNOW it’s was Punk’s fault as usual. NO, no one cares about the MIZ anymore. Or did they ever?

    I’m going to stop reading these stupid ratings updates. Seriously, it means f*ck all.

    If you participate in the Nielsenratings you have to enter you sex and age. This is how ratings are measured.

  • chronoxiong

    The Miz doesn’t draw. Just like how he didn’t draw for the Survivor Series PPV.

  • ce

    just bring undertaker 4 the ratings to go up

  • cheesehandler

    went from a 3.1 to a 3.8 rating with Males 18-49, from a 2.3 to a 2.7 in Teen Males, from 1.3 to 1.4 in Women 18-49 and stayed at a 1.1 rating for Teen Females…..

    can someone tell me just exactly how the fuck do “they” know just who is watching…teen males, teen females, males 18-49, etc…

    @heyfit: “That’s a good loss as usually the second RAW segment loses several hundred thousand viewers.” Did you read that part or were you too busy drowning in your own mindless prejudice?

    @alucard420: Damn right.

    CM Punk and Miz lost alot of views. lol nobody cares about CM Punk anymore, he’s gotten stale and boring. i hope he drop the belt to Y2J at Mania.

  • heyfit

    LOL Sheamus lost viewers …VINCE must be regretting to let that white prick win the rumble.

  • Moseley

    I hope WWE don’t think the ratings drop is down to Punk. Miz is proving to be ratings garbage both in terms of entertainment and in ratings. They need to refresh his character or turn him face.

  • lego_rock

    The Rock singing gained 509,000 viewers

    CM Punk vs. The Miz then lost 888,000 viewers – which is the biggest segment drop in a while.
