The April 15th episode of WWE RAW did a 3.07 cable rating with 4.14 million viewers, making it the least watched episode since the end of NFL season. The recent trend of low viewership per home, 1.36 for this week, also continued.

In the segment breakdown, the show started a bit weak for Big Show vs. Randy Orton and Sheamus with a 3.06 quarter rating. The segment with Brock Lesnar destroying 3MB gained 113,000 viewers. Kofi Kingston winning the United States Title from Antonio Cesaro lost 111,000 viewers. A replay of Dolph Ziggler’s title win from the week before lost 10,000 viewers. Ziggler’s interview with Zeb Colter, Jack Swagger and Alberto Del Rio coming out gained 241,000 viewers for a 3.23 quarter rating in the 9pm timeslot.

Kane and Daniel Bryan vs. Titus O’Neil and Darren Young plus the Ryback promo gained 33,000 viewers. R-Truth vs. Wade Barrett lost 397,000 viewers. Santino Marella and The Great Khali vs. Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow lost 84,000 viewers. Fandango coming out at 10pm gained just 69,000 viewers for a 2.95 quarter rating – a very bad gain for the top of the hour.

Ziggler vs. Swagger lost 232,000 viewers and the CM Punk interview gained 344,000 viewers, a very good gain for that part of the show. Kaitlyn vs. Nikki Bella gained 20,000 viewers. The final segment with John Cena, Ryback and The Shield gained 647,000 viewers for a 3.53 overrun rating.
