That show did a 3.15 rating with 4.44 million viewers. RAW that night went up against the BCS Championship football game which drew 26.83 million viewers.
In the segment breakdown, John Cena vs. Dolph Ziggler gained 214,000 viewers. Kaitlyn vs. Eve Torres lost 224,000 viewers. Backstage stuff with Santino Marella, Ricky Steamboat and Wade Barrett plus Randy Orton and 3MB in an interview lost 484,000 viewers. Kane and Daniel Bryan vs. Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow plus Randy Orton vs. Heath Slater gained 172,000 viewers in the 9pm time slot for a 2.94 quarter rating.

Kofi Kingston vs. Big Show lost 1,037,000 viewers - way more viewers lost than any segment in 2012. That was likely fans turning back to the football game.
