Source: Wrestling Observer NewsletterThe June 4th WWE RAW Supershow scored a 2.92 cable rating with 4.28 million viewers. The show did a 2.5 rating in Male Teens (up 14%), a 2.4 in Males 18-49 (same as previous week), a 0.9 in Female Teens (up 50%) and a 1.2 rating in Females 18-49 (up 20%). This was the week that WWE brought John Cena back and Cena draws females at a level nobody else does on RAW.
The show started out strong with Cena's promo doing a 3.27 quarter rating. Things went down from there and never got back up. Cole trying to get out of the match backstage and the beginning of Sheamus vs. Dolph Ziggler lost 753,000 viewers, a bad sign. The finish of their match and the attack from Alberto Del Rio plus Sin Cara vs. Hunico gained 302,000 viewers.
Ryback's RAW debut against two local wrestlers lost 298,000 viewers. Kane vs. CM Punk in the 10pm timeslot gained 340,000 viewers. The first part of the match did a 2.93 rating while the finish got up to a 3.02 quarter rating. This is a little less than average for that timeslot but better than what Punk has been drawing as of late.
Kofi Kingston and R-Truth vs. Curt Hawkins and Tyler Reks lost 646,000 viewers and John Cena vs. Tensai gained 514,000 viewers, which is very strong for the 10:45pm quarter. Cena vs. Michael Cole gained 299,000 viewers for a 3.14 rating in the overrun, which is a weak gain for the end of the show.
For the main event, Male Teens went from a 2.2 rating to a 2.7, Males 18-49 went from a 2.0 to a 2.5, Female Teens went from a 0.8 to a 1.3 rating and Females 18-49 went from a 1.0 to a 1.3.
