As noted before, the September 17th WWE RAW scored a 2.86 cable rating with 4.05 million viewers, about the same as the previous two weeks. The total number of viewers was the lowest in months. In comparison, the Denver Broncos vs. Atlanta Falcons NFL game did a 11.58 rating with 15.52 million viewers.

The highest rated segment this week came in the first quarter-hour at 8pm, which did a 3.21 rating. WWE had a large audience to start but lost them early when the football game started.

In the segment breakdown, Sin Cara and Rey Mysterio vs. Primo and Epico lost 404,000 viewers when the football game started. Titus O’Neil and Darren Young attacking them plus Eve Torres vs. Beth Phoenix lost 17,000 viewers. Heath Slater vs. Brodus Clay lost 129,000 more viewers. MizTV with The Miz, Booker T and Ryback gained just 381,000 viewers in the 9pm time slot.

Dolph Ziggler vs. Santino Marella and Justin Gabriel vs. Wade Barrett lost 153,000 viewers. The Subway segment with Jared and various Superstars lost 478,000 viewers and fell to a 2.64 quarter rating. Kane and Daniel Bryan vs. R-Truth and Kofi Kingston gained 362,000 viewers, picking back up most of the viewers who tuned out during the Subway segment.

The post-match stuff with them hugging lost 169,000 viewers in the 10pm timeslot, doing a low 2.78 quarter rating. This is a very bad number for that time period of the show. This is the second time a long drawn out hugging segment in a key timeslot has bombed.

Tensai vs. Randy Orton lost 150,000 viewers. Zack Ryder vs. Damien Sandow lost 169,000 viewers and did a 2.56 quarter rating. Sheamus and John Cena vs. CM Punk and Alberto Del Rio in the main event did the best growth for a quarter in a while – gaining 823,000 viewers for a 3.14 overrun rating.
