– We’re just now getting the ratings breakdowns for the Memorial Day edition of WWE’s RAW Supershow on May 28th. The show did a 2.72 rating with 3.91 million viewers. In comparison, last year’s Memorial Day RAW did a 3.07 rating, the 2010 show did a 3.22 rating and the 2009 show did a 2.9 rating. Total viewership between 9 and 11pm were down 2% from a normal Monday, so the show would have done about a 2.77 rating with 3.99 million viewers if it weren’t a holiday.
RAW faced stiff competition that night as The History Channel’s Hatfields & McCoys premiered with a 9.1 rating and 13.87 million viewers while ESPN aired the Miami Heat vs. Boston Celtics NBA game to a 6.47 rating with 8.99 million viewers.

In the segment breakdown, Santino Marella vs. Alberto Del Rio lost 733,000 viewers from the opener, which is very bad for that spot in the show. That did a low 2.52 quarter-hour rating. Kofi Kingston and R-Truth vs. Dolph Ziggler and Jack Swagger gained 67,000 viewers while a segment with John Laurinaitis and CM Punk for WWE ’13 gained 356,000 viewers.

Punk vs. Daniel Bryan lost 30,000 viewers for a 2.79 quarter-hour rating in the 10pm timeslot – which is a bad number for that point in the show. The post-match segment with Kane plus The Miz vs. Christian lost 13,000 more viewers.

A backstage segment with Laurinaitis, Eve Torres, Teddy Long and David Otunga plus an interview with The Miz and John Cena’s Memorial Day video lost 342,000 viewers for a 2.53 quarter-hour rating. Sheamus vs. David Otunga gained 116,000 viewers. The final segment of the night where Big Show took out R-Truth, Kingston and Brodus Clay gained 436,000 viewers and did a 2.91 overrun rating.
