– Monday’s WWE RAW Supershow from Cleveland scored 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.
