Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter- As noted before, the April 15th episode of WWE RAW did a 3.07 cable rating with 4.14 million viewers, making it the least watched episode since the end of NFL season. The recent trend of low viewership per home, 1.36 for this week, also continued.
In the segment breakdown, the show started a bit weak for Big Show vs. Randy Orton and Sheamus with a 3.06 quarter rating. The segment with Brock Lesnar destroying 3MB gained 113,000 viewers. Kofi Kingston winning the United States Title from Antonio Cesaro lost 111,000 viewers. A replay of Dolph Ziggler's title win from the week before lost 10,000 viewers.
