As noted before, the May 21st WWE RAW Supershow scored a 3.03 cable rating with 4.16 million viewers.
In the segment breakdown, the John Cena and John Laurinaitis opener did well with a 3.40 quarter rating. Big Show's explanation and Cena vs. David Otunga lost 139,000 viewers. Santino Marella's angle with Ricardo Rodriguez lost 521,000 viewers and Alberto Del Rio vs. Randy Orton lost 252,000 more. Kane vs. Daniel Bryan gained 390,000 viewers for a 3.01 quarter rating. This isn't a great number for that timeslot but a good showing for a segment with CM Punk and Bryan.
Jinder Mahal vs. Christian lost 259,000 viewers while Kelly Kelly vs. Beth Phoenix gained 44,000 viewers. John Cena and Sheamus vs. Tensai, Jack Swagger and Dolph Ziggler in the Lumberjack Match gained 878,000 viewers for a 3.49 quarter rating in the overrun. The main event ratings went from a 2.3 to 2.5 in Male Teens, 2.4 to 3.1 in Males 18-49 but didn't show any real gains among females.
