– As noted earlier, the March 23rd edition of RAW scored a 3.49 rating with 5.18 million viewers with the average viewer being 38 years of age with a male skew of 67%. The show did a 3.02 rating with Males 18-49.
In a breakdown of the show, the opening segment with Ric Flair and Chris Jericho did a 3.53 rating, which is a strong opening. The Extreme Rules match with Dolph Ziggler and Jeff Hardy lost 401,000 viewers which almost never happens that early in the show. The eight-man match with Money in the Bank participants lost 104,000 viewers while the segment with John Cena and then Edge, Vickie Guerrero and Big Show gained 193,000 viewers. The match with Big Show and Edge gained 400,000 viewers and the match with William Regal vs. Rey Mysterio gained 208,000 viewers in a segment that usually sees a drop. The comedy match with Mickie James vs. Santino Marella lost 297,000 viewers and the main event with Triple H vs. Randy Orton and Ted DiBiase gained 208,000 viewers. What’s odd is the fact that the end of the angle with Triple H & Legacy saw people turn the show off. RAW lost 89,000 viewers during the hot part of that angle this week.
