- As noted before, the March 5th WWE RAW Supershow from Boston scored a 3.23 cable rating with 4.61 million viewers. Despite The Rock and John Cena closing the show, this week saw the same second hour drop that has been going on.

The show opened with a 3.45 quarter rating with the promo between Shawn Michaels and Triple H. Santino Marella vs. Jack Swagger lost 443,000 viewers. The Rock’s first history lesson and Alicia Fox vs. Eve Torres gained 338,000 viewers while John Cena’s empty arena segment lost 382,000 viewers.

CM Punk and Sheamus vs. Daniel Bryan and Chris Jericho gained 205,000 viewers for a 3.25 quarter rating, which is a weak number for that point in the show. The Rock’s next history lesson and The Miz vs. Big Show lost 121,000 viewers, which is less of a drop than usual for that timeslot. The Rock’s third history lesson and R-Truth vs. Kane lost 187,000 viewers.

The closing segment with John Cena and The Rock gained 763,000 viewers for a 3.57 overrun – which is just slightly above the normal numbers. That segment saw the rating with Male Teens go from 2.5 to 2.8, Males 18-49 go from 2.9 to 3.6, Female Teens go from 1.1 to 1.2 and Women 18-49 go from 1.1 to 1.4.

    The ratings are faked people… How the hell can the “man” get a demograhic without knowing who is living in 10’s of thousands of houses? Hellooo!!! I call bullshit!!!!

    no you’re just a fuckwit ^
    plus did anyone hear the pop santino got when he won the title!

  • Jason

    It was a shit show, let’s be honest here guys.

  • Jimbo

    Yeah how hard is this for WWE to figure out? The show is geared to little kids and little kids on the east coast go to bed before 11. Herp Derp.

    I don’t understand the WWE trying to appeal to a PG audience when Raw runs until 11 (usually runs past that) while these little kiddies have school the next day. I always thought the WWE should move raw to 8-10 instead of 9-11

  • Whatever

    That segment saw the rating with Male Teens go from 2.5 to 2.8, Males 18-49 go from 2.9 to 3.6, Female Teens go from 1.1 to 1.2 and Women 18-49 go from 1.1 to 1.4.

    so stop that pg shit!
    teens will drop but males 18-49 will raise significantly!
