Detailed Breakdown Of Monday’s RAW Rating

May 9, 2013 | Posted by Joseph Lee

Monday’s episode of RAW earned a year-low 2.90 overall rating. The main event of Ryback vs Kane only drew a 2.99 over-run rating.

Here are other highlights:

- The show opened with a 3.29 rating, above the show average, for Cena and Ryback’s in-ring confrontation. This set up the stipulation for the WWE Extreme Rules PPV main event as a Last Man Standing match.

- RAW peaked with a 3.44 rating for the Triple H/Paul Heyman confrontation at the start of the third hour. This helped boost the third hour enough to end a 16-week streak of third hour drop-offs. During the second hour, the NBA Playoffs game between the Heat and Bulls climaxed during the second hour.

- The segment that followed Triple H-Heyman lost almost a million viewers. These include two full commercial breaks, a Divas tag match and a video package higlighting the Total Divas show on E! that was nearly as long as the match itself.

- RAW never got back to that level, but slowly added viewers in the final two-quarter-hours before the 2.99 over-run.
