Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter- As noted before, the July 30th WWE RAW did a 3.09 cable rating with 4.50 million viewers. The three hours came in at 2.79, 3.21 and 3.25. This shows that even with the big numbers from RAW 1000, WWE still had trouble getting the entire audience tuned in at 8pm.
In the segment breakdown, Alberto Del Rio vs. Santino Marella lost 261,000 viewers from the opener, which is not a good drop for hour one. The angle with Damien Sandow and Brodus Clay with Vickie Guerrero dancing gained 214,000 viewers. Daniel Bryan and AJ backstage plus the recap of Stephanie McMahon attacking Paul Heyman from RAW 1000 lost 18,000 viewers.
Sheamus vs. Daniel Bryan in a Street Fight at 9pm gained 521,000 viewers. Segments with R-Truth, Kofi Kingston, Daniel Bryan and AJ gained 274,000 viewers, which is a good gain for that timeslot. Kofi vs. Titus O'Neil lost 223,000 viewers while Randy Orton's return vs. Heath Slater gained 40,000 viewers.
Chris Jericho and Christian vs. The Miz and Dolph Ziggler gained 51,000 viewers for a 3.24 quarter rating - a very weak gain for the 10pm timeslot. Tyson Kidd vs. Tensai lost 34,000 viewers while the third recap of the Triple H and Brock Lesnar RAW 1000 segment lost 246,000 more viewers. John Cena vs. Big Show in the main event with CM Punk on commentary gained 1,181,000 viewers for a 3.86 overrun. This was the best gaining RAW segment in a while.
