The October 1st WWE RAW did a 2.54 cable rating with 3.50 million viewers. This is the lowest rated non-holiday RAW in 15 years.

In the segment breakdown, the opening segment with CM Punk, Paul Heyman, Vickie Guerrero, Dolph Ziggler, AJ Lee, Kane and Daniel Bryan started with a 2.74 quarter rating and gained 4,000 viewers. Sin Cara and Rey Mysterio vs. Primo and Epico plus Antonio Cesaro vs. Brodus Clay lost 461,000 viewers. Zack Ryder vs. The Miz lost another 47,000 viewers and did a 2.37 quarter rating.

The debate with Big Show and Sheamus gained 421,000 viewers which is about the same as the usual 9pm growth. Tensai vs. Ryback and Eve Torres vs. Beth Phoenix lost 350,000 viewers. Santino Marella vs. Heath Slater gained 222,000 viewers. Sheamus vs. Damien Sandow lost 63,000 viewers in the 10pm timeslot.

The 10pm timeslot was scheduled to kick off with the Jim Ross Appreciation Night angle with Punk, Heyman and Ryback but they didn’t really get into it until 10:15pm, which usually posts a big loss. However, instead of a big loss the JR segment gained 461,000 viewers for a show-high 2.89 quarter rating.

Kofi Kingston vs. Alberto Del Rio lost 824,000 viewers for a 2.29 quarter rating. This is the lowest quarter for a regular episode of RAW in 15 years. Basically, 21% of all viewers who saw the JR segment tuned out when that segment ended. 38% of teenage boys, 25% of Males 18-49, 28% of teenage girls and 20% of Women 18-49 tuned out at that point.

The main event with Kane and Daniel Bryan vs. CM Punk and Dolph Ziggler gained 532,000 viewers for a 2.70 overrun rating.
