Credit – Wrestling Observer As noted, the January 14th episode of WWE RAW did a 3.19 rating with 4.54 million viewers. This was the biggest audience for RAW since the 1,000th episode on July 23rd, 2012. In the segment breakdown, they opened strong with Vince McMahon, Big Show and Alberto Del Rio doing a 3.44 quarter rating. Wade Barrett vs. Randy Orton lost 171,000 viewers, which is good considering how strong the opener was. Kane vs. Damien Sandow and the Mick Foley Hall of Fame announcement plus the brawl with The Shield, Sheamus, Ryback and Orton lost 497,000 viewers. Ryback’s interview plus Kaitlyn vs. Eve Torres for the Divas Title gained 509,000 viewers at 9pm for a 3.33 quarter rating. Brodus Clay vs. CM Punk lost 149,000 viewers. Punk’s post-match interview, the video of past RAW car moments plus the backstage segment with The Rock, Foley and Vickie Guerrero gained 142,000 viewers. Sheamus vs. 3MB in a Over the Top Challenge plus a John Cena segment lost 202,000 viewers. MizTV with Ric Flair, The Miz and Antonio Cesaro gained 449,000 viewers at 10pm for the show’s peak rating of 3.50. Cody Rhodes vs. Daniel Bryan plus a backstage segment with AJ Lee, Big E Langston and Dolph Ziggler lost 752,000 viewers – which is likely to be among the biggest drops of this year. Cena vs. Ziggler in the steel cage match gained 118,000 viewers. The closing segment with The Rock’s concert and the brawl with Punk gained 207,000 viewers for a 3.20 quarter rating. That gain is considered low for a RAW overrun.
